Hello Everybody!

Today's newsletter is all about lighting. Lighting is one of the most important design elements of interior design for our businesses as well as our homes. Bad lighting can give us headaches, strain our eyes and make us feel fatigued. Good lighting can improve our mood, inspire us or simply complement our cozy interior. If you need help with selecting appropriate lighting for your space, you can always e-mail us or simply fill out this form to start the conversation.

In our Green News corner, take a look how the artist Jerry Kott transforms recycled bottles into beautiful light fixtures.

Truly yours, EKATERINA KOHLWES principal / designer

Whimsical Lights by David Trubridge from New Zealand

David Trubridge, the designer of these whimsical light fixtures, is one of the most progressive furniture and lighting designers of our time.

His light fixtures are also made in his homeland of New Zealand, as oppose to being mass produced in China.
