Direct from Dallas

Last month I had the pleasure of attending the International Lighting Market in Dallas. Each year I look forward to going to the Dallas Market and seeing the latest and greatest in lighting, including new lighting releases from hundreds of manufacturers. It is also a fabulous way to connect with fellow lighting professionals to learn about best practices. I am always interested in discovering inventive ways to show our valued customers how much we treasure their business and loyalty.

Here is what was trending at the Dallas Market:

Green Scene

It was exhilarating to see the innovations in ways to save and celebrate the planet. Be on the lookout for recycled lighting products using glass and metals.

Conversion to LED

The lighting buzz continues to be about LED lighting. Many of you are aware that you can save money, save energy and save the planet by converting to LED. It is exciting to see that quality, affordability and accessibility continues to improve. Besides never having to change a light bulb, there is relatively no climate change when you use LED. Be sure to sop by the showroom to see my top favorite LED additions.

Seeing Red

Everywhere I turned I saw the color red. Take note of all the amazing colors available in everything from fixtures to lighting switches and plates.

Mixing Mediums

One of the most exciting trends in lighting is the mixtures of mediums like metal, fabric and crystals. One of the most dazzling ideas I saw in Dallas with a metal grill illuminated by shimmering crystals.

There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.
