2021 Wrap Up – Your Favourite Lighting Fixtures of the Year

As the end of the approaches we are taking a moment to look back and reflect on the year. 2021 certainly brought a lot of ups and downs for everyone. But one thing was for certain, our lights were on (for most of the year at least) and we were happy to have clients back in our store. Helping our clients design their homes this year was most definitely one of the brightest spots of the year. So let’s take a look at what was most popular with our clients this year!

Tull 5-Light Chandelier in Matte White

With a fresh matte white finish, the steel orb-shaped frame of this five-light chandelier comes to life and delivers an enticing design element radiating beautiful illumination. Make this fixture your own by customizing finishes on its frame interior, bulb bases, and finials, and enjoy the ornate bonus of floating crystal shapes that seal its exquisite aesthetic.

Titania Black and Chrome Flush Mount

Contrasting finishes pad the extraordinary design of this four-light flush mount ceiling light. An architectural blend of rectangular shapes pairs a black steel frame with chrome finish bulb bases, and a surprisingly beautiful arrangement of candelabra-style bulbs that create a versatile contemporary and transitional dynamic.

Summer Lighting Trends

Needless to say, it’s been quite the summer for 2021. We are excited to be beginning to see the light at the end of the pandemic tunnel and have enjoyed getting to reopen our doors this summer.

Since everyone has been spending more than the usual amount of time at home over the past year, it has been so interesting to see where our clients have been focusing their renovation energy on in their homes. Kitchen and bathroom renovations are still a main area of focus of course, but lots of clients have also been paying extra careful attention to the design of other areas of their home…

1 – The Home Office

With more and more companies moving to a permanent work-from-home situation, it’s no surprise that home offices are becoming a focus.  So what are people doing with their lighting in their home office?

Well we’ve found that people are really working towards using the natural light in their offices, adding functional task lighting and topping off the look with some statement overhead lighting pieces. People are really wanting to add a punch of personality into their home offices, a perk that many did not have before when working in-office. We have seen everything from crystal chandeliers, to geometric pendants and super modern flush mounts enter office spaces over the past few months! 

2 – Outdoor Lighting

Summer is the season to be outside and enjoy the sunshine here in Southwestern Ontario. With vacationing and travelling limited for another summer, we have seen so many families transforming their backyards into their own tropical paradise! From adding new gardens, putting in the pool they’ve been dreaming of, to finally updating the 15-year-old patio furniture – it’s no secret that Ontarians have been making magic happen in their backyards. 

As for lighting outdoors, we have seen families focusing on two main areas – the front door and the back porch. Our clients have been wanting to make their front and back porches more welcoming for the neighbourhood crew. 

3 – Kids Rooms 

The last area we have seen clients focusing on this summer is their kids’ rooms! This one seemed a little surprising to us at first but those preteens and teens have been stuck inside for a very long time and need a little refresh in their space too! Lots of kids’ rooms were not only their bedrooms this past year, but also their schoolroom, their sports training room and their safe space.
