hampton residence

 A fresh mix of metals and neutral palette make this kitchen an inviting place to cook, dine and gather. The industrial style pendants and linear fixture above the dining table add modern appeal.

The kitchen and dining area opens effortlessly into the living room. Bronze fixtures with clean lines add warmth and interest to the space.

Kate selected an eclectic mix of furnishings and accessories in tranquil tones for the airy living room.  Elegant ceiling molding frames the canopies of gilded lanterns overhead.

The rich tones and textures of the island and oversized hood stand out in this all-white kitchen. Classic bell lanterns add a subtle country-home feel.

“I love the Large Country Industrial Pendant by E.F. Chapman. The contrast of such an industrial style light in a home instantly makes a statement that you are somewhere modern and cool.”
– Jessica R.

My favorite piece in our collection is the French Cuff Sconce by Barbara Barry. I love the simple, yet elegant and transitional style. It’s so versatile and can be used in many rooms throughout the home.
– Patty J.
Greenwich Showroom

Lonni Paul (Rancic home), September 2015

The scale of the Michelangelo Buffet Lamp by Thomas O’Brien is perfect for accenting a room without overpowering it. I love it in Alabaster. It gives a classic and soft touch to any space.
– Josh P.

Miles Redd (Danielle Rollins home), March 2012

“I love the uniqueness of the Zodiac Pendant by E.F. Chapman. It is a true conversation piece! It would be a fun addition to a sunroom or study.”

“The Boston Functional Library Two Arm Wall Lightby E.F. Chapman makes a great task light, but I especially love when this fixture is applied in the kitchen or bath.”
– Drew H.
Savannah Sales Center

My favorite piece is the Juliette Table  Lamp by Suzanne Kasler. I absolutely love the way it glows when it is lit.  It look like luxurious molten gold and would be stunning in a New England living room on a cold snowy day.”

– Sue P.
Greenwich Showroom

Jessica Helgerson

“The Alice Sconce by Suzanne Kasler complements interiors from rustic to contemporary, with lines and curves that feel equestrian and mechanical. It’s both a light fixture and an artisanal presence on the wall.
– Stephen B.
Chicago Showroom

Kapito Muller Interiors

“Thomas O’Brien’s Selecta Long Glass Bath Light is a favorite of mine. It’s both functional and sleek, masculine and warm.  It’s a great choice for lighting a bath vanity or accenting a stairway.”
– Erika F.
DC Showroom

@viewfrommyheels

“The Darlana Medium Lantern by E.F. Chapman is a beautiful way to update the look of a traditional space. I love the Darlana series because it comes in so many different sizes and finishes – there’s always a perfect fit.”
– Geri S.

“The Moravian Star by E.F. Chapman makes a bold statement in any application – from setting the tone of a home in a foyer to bringing playfulness to a powder room.”
– Acacia L.

Over the past decade, Ashley Goforth has become one of Houston’s most influential designers. Her key principles are simple: a neutral color palette, a mix of traditional and contemporary furnishings and an emphasis on the relationship of textures and shapes. Our Houston showroom has had the pleasure of working with Ashley and her outstanding team for several years, and we are thrilled to share her work in our client spotlight this month!

CL: What do you look for when you choose lighting for a project?

AG: Whenever I start selecting lighting for a project, I take into account two things: the type of material needed to balance of the other textures in a space, and the scale.  I like large scale lighting as it can really  make statement!

CL: The Hargett Table Lamp is practically your signature! What do you love about this piece?
AG: I love the Hargett lamp! It is the perfect size, comes in a variety of finishes and is adjustable.  It is just contemporary enough without being plain and soft enough to blend into any traditional interior.  And the coolie shade doesn’t hurt – it gives it a stylish twist.

CL: Our Houston staff adores working with you! Have any pieces caught your eye in the showroom recently? Something you’d like to use in a future project?
AG:I really like the Robinson chandelier.  It has such a pretty silhouette, and anything with touches of gold dresses up a space.  I am also excited to start incorporating Kelly Wearstler designs into my projects. They are innovative and use interesting materials.
