Get inspired by Atlanta-based designer, Suzanne Kasler‘s new vision of Low Country Style, reflected in the Southern Living Idea House 2014.
The house, located in picturesque Palmetto Bluff, South Carolina, is beautiful with an open floor plan and refreshing decor.
The living room is defined by two separate seating areas and sets the tone for the light, fresh decor seen throughout the house. Suzanne “dressed-up” the room with floor-to-ceiling curtains, layered rugs, and a pair of Large Percival Chandeliers.
The master bathroom has a spa-like feel and is designed as the perfect place to relax. The room is centered on a free standing tub and the Morris Small Lantern.
We are excited to introduce our hot list, where you can enjoy the styles you love without the wait!

The distinct beauty and soft glow of alabaster has made it a popular stone since ancient times. Because it is soft and easy to carve, it is commonly used to create decorative objects and lamps.
Alabaster is formed through a natural process of reoccurring evaporation, creating the marbling of colors that is unique to each stone. The beautiful color variations in the stone can range from pure milky white and pale pink to warm burnished rust, peach and many colors in between.
The alabaster used in our fixtures is real, naturally formed stone. Each of our alabaster fixtures is unique, with varying shades, irregular veining, marbled tones, and a look that is simply brilliant!
“Anyone designing a room must have real passion — this is nonnegotiable.”
— Eric Cohler
Eric Cohler, who established his firm Eric Cohler Design in 1991, has a passion for design that began at a very early age. His family history of collecting, long with having both a grandmother and mother with impeccable taste, led to Cohler’s early appreciation for great design. After earning his undergraduate degrees in Art and English from Hobart College in New York, Cohler attended law school. It was there he first realized his passion for design when he began drawing plans for how he would redesign the lecture halls. After a brief career in advertising and PR, Eric Cohler attended Columbia University. There he received a historic-preservation degree from architecture school and then went on to receive a design certificate from Harvard’s Graduate School of Design.
An education rooted in classicism and a deep appreciation for mid-century modernism has resulted in the iconic style that we see today in Eric Cohler’s work. Early on in his career, Eric was dubbed the “Mixmaster” for his ability to rethink antiques and use them in a contemporary environment. His interior spaces display layers of unusual texture, color, and vigor.
Cohler’s work is consistently featured in leading domestic and international publications, such as, Elle Decor, Traditional Home House Beautiful, Veranda, Town & Country, and The New York Times. In recent years, he has expanded to include product design for Lee Jofa and Visual Comfort & Co.
