Before & After | Vintage-Inspired Lights Help Transform Victorian Home
Over the past three years, we have enjoyed the renovation journey shared by our friend Christina on her blog Christina’s Adventures. She and her husband have lovingly transformed their 1902 Victorian near Philadelphia into a warm, bright, and welcoming home that they share with their three young children. Today, we’re taking a look back at some impressive before-and-after photos of three of their rooms. When you see these pictures side by side, you can appreciate not only the vision that Christina had for each space, but the countless hours of work devoted to this labor of love. ... Read More

Featured Customer | Industrial Lighting Sets Tone for Leather Studio Experience
Charlotte, North Carolina, ranks as the country’s fastest growing metro area and is particularly attractive to millennials. The skyline is jammed with soaring steel and glass, sports arenas, and luxury condos, but if you take the time to explore, you can still find pockets of the city’s long and storied history.
