Wonderful Lighting at ICFF
Some consider hardware to be the "jewelry" in a space but not me. I have a thing for lighting.
So it was a no brainer when Corbett Lighting, Troy Lighting and Hudson Valley Lighting asked me to stop by their booth at ICFF. It was the first time they exhibited at the renowned trade show, and while this post is sponsored by them, I found so much to love, the post practically wrote itself. Part of the Littman family of brands, each lighting company has its own unique flair, but all of them employ an artisan approach using the finest materials and innovative designs.
Take Corbett Lighting. Corbett is known for it's fashion forward approach and their lighting is like sculpture. I fell hard for the Lily collection, seen as a gorgeous chandelier in this bedroom.
Each flower in a Lily light is handmade in porcelain. The base is a branching frame handcrafted in iron and finished in a silver leaf. It glows when lit, which is how I experienced this model at the show.
Lily is offered in entry and dining variations and as a semi-flush mount and sconce.
Another favorite from Corbett is their Media chandelier. Made from letters of the alphabet in various finishes, I thought this light would be absolutely perfect in a kid space, but as you can see from the first photo, it is sophisticated enough to hold its own in any adult room.
Troy Lighting, and its sister Troy Lighting RLM, have an industrial edge, but the designs are still artful. Troy even has a line that features graffiti-like art, aptly named Street Art. Street Art is suspended from an aircraft cable and its body is hand wrought galvanized and corrugated iron. Inside, the graffiti-like art is spray painted by hand and the bulbs are protected by vintage wire guards. The Street Art line includes various sized pendants, a semi-flush mount and a rectangular wall sconce.
Troy sees this collection in a loft setting, restaurant or pub. It also looks great in this art gallery.
Troy's sister company Troy RLM Lighting launched a wholly customizable system dubbed Structure at ICFF. Structure is designed with an industrial flair and can be used to suspend any of Troy RLM's fixtures.
The RLM line comes in 20 different colors, plus two speciality finishes and a coastal finish for damp applications. It is made entirely in California.
Hudson Valley Lighting is known for its classic lines, and finest materials and craftsmanship. Although the lighting designs work in both traditional and modern settings, they are rooted in history and the decorative arts. Take their Washington pendant--to me, it recalls Phillipe Starck's iconic Ghost Chair, but in lighting form.
Hudson Valley's Coolidge pendant is their take on a late 18th century design with a modern twist. Shaped like a beehive, the light's glass has the appearance of antique seeded glass due to thin strands of brass laid horizontally and vertically when the glass is molten, an Italian technique. Coolidge comes in 3 pendant sizes and a semi-flush mount.
I liked most everything Hudson Valley Lighting had to offer. Here are 4 more favorites.
Indeed there was so much to love about Corbett Lighting, Troy and Troy RLM Lighting and Hudson Valley Lighting, I wouldn't spec lighting without considering them.
