I had the pleasure of meeting Jeremy Cole when he visited Dallas from New Zealand. His artistic talents and attention to intricate detail give interiors elegant new lighting possibilities. Cole’s creative chandeliers, sconces and lamps are handmade in his ceramic studio. All are nature inspired- Aloe Buds, Chrysalis, Orchids, Blossoms, Flax. He is sensitive, thoughtful and quite humble for a lighting celebrity, always focused on the next piece he will be designing. Spoiler alert: it will be inspired by another beautiful flower in the orchid family. Let’s take a look at his work: [Read more…]

I have a theory that Ingo Maurer customers must enjoy life significantly more than those who play it safe with lighting design decisions. Ingo Maurer designs are SO full of life, creativity, humor and energy. Would you have this in your home?

Bernhard is a composed, thoughtful conversationalist – and he is modest about his talent level.

He has designed lighting with Ingo Maurer for 29 years, both for the wildly inspired product line and for private and public installations. Lets take a look at a few of his brilliant installations: [Read more…]
