I managed to get in and out of Dallas to avoid the big storm and boy was the trip worth it! We are going through such a transformation in lighting right now with the evolution of LED lighting being adapted to all types of lighting fixtures that I wanted to see in person all the product first hand to guide my clients to the best quality for their money.

If you can compromise some general illumination, LED in outdoor fixtures can be very striking and create a very dramatic look at night in a more transitional and modern fixture. For those that still like the look of a traditional brass lantern, using the new vintage candle LED bulbs can save the most energy while providing security in outdoor lighting.  Stop in and try a sample to see for yourself!

Ceiling fixtures can be very low profile with the advent of LED lighting — but not all fixtures are created equal so come see the differences.

Industrial was still strong for new introductions this market, with an emphasis on streamlined designs and style. "Marble" glass (popular in the '90s) has been replaced by clear "seedy" or "bubble" glass to give a more transitional look to many fixtures. Fabric drum shades have expanded to a more contemporary look by incorporating metal shades over fabric.

Hubbardton Forge probably had the most exciting reveal having introduced it's "larger" fixture options in LED linear chandeliers.
