A quick look at the calendar this morning and I realized that it’s almost time for the biannual clock adjustment. This Sunday, we spring forward into Daylight Saving Time and thrust ourselves, albeit sluggishly thanks to the loss of that precious hour, into the new season.
And while your spring plans may include a long list of cleaning and refreshing details that need attention, you don’t need to lose any sleep over your lighting. We’ve got you covered!

Building a new home brings on a host of decisions once the bones are in place. What type of floors, countertops, cabinetry, and yes, what type of lighting will go in each space?

Combining the finest details from our handcrafted cast guard-and-glass light fixtures along with the latest in LED technology, we have created our Rustic LED Post Mount Collection. Now your exterior commercial lighting can be as stylish as your interior lighting while saving... Read More
When Brian and Laura, of Newton, Massachusetts, bought a 1912, two-family home, it was in desperate need of TLC after decades of rental abuse. They are slowly renovating the home and bringing it up to to date with LED lighting throughout.

We’re winding up a week of reflection here on the blog as we’ve been looking back at some of our favorite customer projects and our most popular pins. Today, we’re perusing some of our favorite commercial projects.
I know. I hear ya. What’s so special about commercial lighting anyway? It’s all fluorescent, nondescript, and boring, right?
With apologies to Lee Corso, not so fast my friend. Here we share some pretty special commercial spaces that use American-made lighting to add a focal point and bring both style and safety into the design plan.
