Give the Gift of Light this Year

With the holiday season rapidly approaching, the best-selling and hottest new contemporary lighting fixtures were hand-picked and marked down 20-35% OFF list price (November 1-30) — offering gifts for the design savvy at more affordable prices.

Top Gift Ideas

KONCEPT LIGHTING

Z-Bar® Desk Lamp features the award-winning three-bar design for ultimate reach and flexibility.

The all-LED Generation 3 line from Koncept features enhancements to the multi-award winning fixtures like the Z-bar and Equo. The innovations of Generation 3 include better quality and brightness by equalizing the LED light distribution and a touchstrip that can be smoothly dimmed with the swipe of a finger, or instantly brightened or dimmed with a simple touch.

CERNO LIGHTING

Another brand consisting entirely of LED fixtures, Cerno, is relatively young to the lighting scene. Initially turning heads with their multi-purpose wall sconce turned reading light, Cubo, Cerno solidified their position in the design community with high quality contemporary desk lamps, floor lamps and LED pendants.

ARTEMIDE LIGHTING

Tolomeo has become an icon in the lighting industry, popular across the world and even on display in museums.

Artemide, an icon in the lighting industry, has their top-selling Tizio and Tolomeo lamps: a classic gift that will never go out of style.

EDGE LIGHTING NIGHT OWL READING LIGHT

The Edge Lighting Night Owl series uses a direct beam of LED light, ideal as a bedside reading light that won’t disturb your partner. The wall-mounted Night Owl and Night Owl 3 are available in plug-in and canopy versions with a variety of finishes. The Night Owl 3 also comes with a high/low switch and adjustable beamspread.

LIGHTOLOGY COLLECTION

3POD floor lamp features a black fabric shade and a black carbon steel finish for a classic look that’s equally durable.

Lightology offers its own line of fixtures, the Lightology Collection, which represents the highest pinnacle of design and the latest technological developments.

The Holiday Sale lasts until November 30, 2011.

Designer Profile: Mia Rao

Call her a design philanthropist. Mia Rao, of Mia Rao Design in Chicago, IL never thought that being a designer would win her any points on the do-gooder scale.

“For the longest time, I thought I wasn’t doing anything philanthropic,” says Mia. “But I’ve come to realize that people are really affected by their environment. It’s exciting to watch the transformation of a space, but the most rewarding aspect of being an interior designer is finding out how much your designs can impact a person’s life.”

Mia has used Lightology for many of her projects, and shared with us some of her favorites.

Why Lighting?

“Lighting really has the ability to make huge transformations to a space. I think it is one of the most important aspects of my job; there is not much point to doing interior design without doing lighting. Once a client sees the right lighting in one space, they understand how important it is and almost always want to re-light the rest of their house.”

Why Lightology?

“Lightology is the best in Chicago when it comes to variety and options. Clients are always impressed when they come into the showroom, and its just a fun place to go and pick fixtures. I have worked with a lot of the staff and I’ve always had very good service.

Because you guys are always ahead of the curve, there have been a few times where I have been the first to buy a new fixture from your showroom, and clients just love knowing they have a truly unique fixture.”
