Things We Love: Flush Mount Lighting

We used to think that flush mount lighting was only for low ceilings, you know, those spaces that could quite handle a big chandelier or a dangly, statement light fixture. But a few of our favorite lighting designers and companies have changed all of that, turning what used to be the underdog of the lighting world into a go-to staple. From plain white to shiny gold, round to quatrefoil, flat to proudly pointy, there are so many ways today to get the flush mount lighting thing oh so right. Check out a few of our go-to flush mount staples that will have you rethinking everything you know about lighting!

Sometimes you do have to save the best for last, and, in this case, we think it’s true! We love, love this stunning fixture. It is so on trend! Are you a flush mount fan? Or would you choose a snazzy chandelier any day?

Attention New York friends!

Good morning, friends! We hope you had a terrific long weekend, filled with sun and fun and, of course, most importantly, remembering those who have sacrificed themselves for our freedom. 


Fabulous Floor Lamps!

If there’s one thing that has the power to change the feel of the room in an instant, it’s light.

From light fixtures to the perfect lamps, we love adding light in any way we can to instantly make a room feel bright and fresh.

Good morning! We hope you’re having an amazing week so far. Ours is about to get even better because you know how much we love stumbling upon a new designer that we love. And that’s just what happened when we found Lisa Furey!

It goes without saying that we aren’t all the same. So why should our decor be? Tailoring a look to any home, any budget, and style is one of Lisa’s strong points, and one of the reasons we think her work is always in good taste.


Making an Entrance

 From an evening gown to a perfect floral arrangement, an entrance is sort of like a first impression: You only get one chance to make it.

 A round table is one of our favorite ways to make a statement in the foyer.


Chic Floor Lamps

 Light, light, light! It is one of the best accessories, we think. Natural or not, we think it enlivens every room.

Lucy and Company

 Table lamps on end tables might be a traditional look, but that doesn’t mean they’re mandatory. We absolutely adore a pair of floor lamps for adding warmth and sophistication to a living room. The colors in this one are just perfect. Don’t you love the paint in the bookcase?
