I’m not sure if any of you were able to make it out to IDS 2012 this year but I thought I would share two very cool lighting vendors I cam across. Check them out when you get a chance. The offer something different…..
For lighting check out AM Studio Custom lighting art glass studio. They have beautiful lights that are truly unique. Styles range from whimsical to more modern and funky. A variety of sizes and lengths are also available which makes them perfect store to visit if your looking for that show stopping light over the dining table or a custom piece for a commercial or retail space.
Another lighting vendor worth checking out is Bocci they are a contemporary design and manufacturing house based out of Vancouver, BC with satellite offices in other parts of the world. If you are in Toronto and looking for a showroom or sales office check out Eurolite to get pricing and more information. these fixture would be beautiful in a retail store or new condo lobby. I was interested in one of their lights for a residential project, I’d like to customize it and add some colour to the glass and more strands (which they can do) and the staircase is only one level so it will run from the second floor to the ground floor ….
