This month we shine a spotlight on the simply brilliant Manhattan-based architect and award-winning interior designer Barry Goralnick. Each piece of Goralnick’s luxurious collection makes a distinctive aesthetic statement, yet mixes harmoniously with a wide range of different decor and architecture styles.
“During the process of designing a project, I have always told my clients that the lighting is “the jewelry of the home”. It adds interest, texture, and sparkle, like a good fashion accessory. For this collection I conceived of “jewelry as a fixture”- literally!”
– Barry Goralnick
The stunning Bracelet series has been a favorite from the instant Mr. Goralnick’s collection was introduced. The glamorous, textural design commands attention in any space! Each piece in this series is available in three rich finishes: Gilded Iron, Aged Iron, and Burnished Silver Leaf. Barry was kind enough to give us a little insight into the inspiration behind his design:
“The inspiration was an Elsa Peretti bangle bracelet. We modeled them in the computer and stacked them to create the effect I wanted to achieve. The result is a light, airy fixture that fits in any type of decor.”
“I topped it off with a whimsical finial. I think finials are often the ignored after-thought by many lamp designers. They are often very visible especially at the nightstand or lamp table level.”
Last August, Barry took his beloved Bracelet Lamp on a tour of Manhattan and photographed it for his blog. We dare you not to smile at these photos of the bright light in the big city! Photography by Sully Bonnelly .
The Bracelet table lamp was so well received, Mr. Goralnick expanded the series to include a small pendant, large pendant and sconce. Next on the agenda: a Bracelet Chandelier!
Another beautiful piece from Mr. Goralnick’s collection is the Selene Table Lamp. The modern interpretation of a classic form makes this lamp a great accent to many architectural styles. We love seeing another one of his signatures – the unexpected detail on the finial – on the Selene! This lamp is also available in three finishes: Polished Nickel, Gilded, and Aged Iron.
His Choros Chandelier is a mid-century design lover’s dream! The striking combination of aged iron and brass finishes will make a unique statement in any setting. Both the single and double-tier versions are also available in a Polished Nickel finish.
Interior designer, tastemaker and blogger Paloma Contreras of La Dolce Vita selected the Choros Chandelier for the breakfast room of her home, which was photographed for the Winter 2014 cover feature of Domino Magazine.
