Thought you might like to see our latest custom lighting installation in a new upscale Suchi restaurant at the Snoqualmie Casino located in beautiful Snoqualmie, Washington. Bernadette Rubio of Mulvanny G2 Architecture was the Interior Designer and Lauren MacLeod of Candela was the Lighting Designer.
The restaurant’s name is “12 Moons”. For this installation, we were asked to create decorative “moon” and “star pendants. The moons are hand painted acrylic globes in assorted sizes, colors, and textures. The “Stars” are small hand blown glass balls encrusted with glittery glass frit. They’re illuminated with sparkly LED lamps. Here’s a photo of the installation – nice, don’t you think?!
For the Private Dining area, the Interior Designer, Bernadette Rubio, loved the look of the Ochre Arctic Pear Chandelier. Unfortunately, it wasn’t available from the manufacturer in the size, configuration, and lead time she wanted. She asked us to create something similar. Here’s our interpretation. Our glass artist created solid glass pears in three different sizes for this gorgeous chandelier.
This fixture is installed in the Casino’s new piano bar. It’s a custom value-engineered version of our popular Pallina Pendant. This simple yet elegant pendant features a hand polished Stainless Steel finish with a cascade of crystal clear blown glass globes.
It’s been awhile since my last blog! I got caught up in everyday stuff and kept putting off writing. I’m back with lots to say and show you. The holidays are coming and winter weather is settling in. Now that the elections are over, along with all those annoying ads and phone calls, I am digging in and getting back to business. Here are photos of our latest fixture. It is a customized version of our Stix Ceiling Mount. It’s pretty spectacular at almost 12 feet tall – don’t you think?! Three MR11 lamps create a soft pattern of light on the floor that to me resembles a squished snowflake. The most amazing thing about this fixture is the prismatic colors that reflect off the glass as well as the brilliant points of light captured within. Enjoy!
Can you imagine how fun it is to work with Architects and Interior Designers? I can tell you — it is Terrific!! Their creativity is absolutely amazing.
It seems Designer’s inspiration juices really kick into high gear whenever we introduce a new lighting fixture design. Sooner or later, they call to ask if they can tweak something. They want it bigger, smaller, taller, wider, or with different materials or finishes. Some Lighting Manufacturers won’t customize their designs – but we do!! Collaboration and creative new ideas from talented Designers make products better. Best of all, they give us their ideas for free!
A perfect example of this is illustrated by the fixture pictured here. It was inspired by our Stix Ceiling Mount fixture. The Architect, Jeff Lamb, wanted Glass Stix suspended from the polished stainless steel mounting plate to form a loose bowl configuration. This required some redesigning on our part, but his bright idea resulted in a really gorgeous fixture – don’t you think?
