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.
Here are just a few more interesting facts about Eric Cohler…
Eric Cohler does between 20-25 projects a year.
Sources of inspiration: David Adler, Dorothy Draper, Frances Elkins, David Hicks, Jean Charles Moreux, Karl Friedrick Schinkel, Billy Baldwin
His love of “I Love Lucy” created his soft spot for decorating with a 1950′s bent.
He has had 20+ apartments since college and feels most comfortable staying in hotels.
His Lee Jofa “Tyler Crewel” fabric was selected by President and Mrs. Obama for the White House family dining room.
He has over 10,000 books in his library, located in a Queens warehouse.
All that glitters is not gold…and diamonds are forever. That is certainly the case for our most recent summer reset. Many of the display areas featuring the coveted AERIN collection have proven to be a perfect fit for our Creative Director’s vision of a Mod, James Bond inspired theme.
