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.

Known for its architecture, history, and reputation for Southern charm and hospitality, Savannah, Georgia is one of America’s favorite cities and the birthplace of Circa Lighting! Take a tour of our hometown and the places where our lighting is found:

levy jewelers

This fourth-generation family jewelry business is a staple in Savannah history. Hansen Architects transformed the 1947 building at the corner of Broughton and Bull Streets into the Levy Jewelers flagship store in 2012. The glittering jewelry cases in the spacious street-level showroom are lit with Simple Scallop Chandeliers by Barbara Barry overhead.

one fish two fish

Savannah’s visitors and locals agree: One Fish Two Fish is the best boutique around. Owner Jennifer Grayson sources an eclectic mix of home furnishings, jewelry and gifts both locally (handbag and accessory brand Spartina 449 hails from Daufuskie Island) and abroad. Charming planters and Longacre Outdoor Wall Lanterns by Thomas O’Brien welcome patrons at the door, and a pair of Double Sloane Street Shop Lights by E.F. Chapman illuminate the register area.

the florence

Now iconic to the Midtown neighborhood, The Florence is Hugh Acheson’s (of 5&10 in Athens and Empire State South in Atlanta) first foray into Savannah dining. While the menu celebrates Italian cuisine, the majority of the food served at The Florence is locally sourced. The cool factory space features a Modern Globe Pendant and Boston Functional Two Arm Wall Lights byE.F. Chapman.

parker’s corporate headquarters

The Philbrick-Eastman House was built by Charles B. Cluskey in 1847 and has been home to a number of distinguished Savannah families. A new chapter began for the historic home this year when it was restored and renovated into the state-of-the-art corporate headquarters of Parker’s convenience store company. Savannah-based Greenline Architecture preserved exquisite period details while incorporating contemporary accents, like the Mill Ceiling Lights by AERIN.

the brice hotel

Experience true Southern hospitality with unique perspective at one of Savannah’s many boutique hotels. We love the decor at The Brice Hotel because it mirrors Savannah’s graceful blend of new and old. The vintage flair of the Medium Chelsea Reflection Sconces by E.F. Chapman harmonizes with urban, industrial style furnishings in the hotel’s main floor living room.

pacci

With Savannah’s beloved Roberto Leoci as Executive Chef, this comfortable and casual eatery is not to be missed. Located adjacent to The Brice, Pacci is a continuation of the hotel’s inspired design. The private dining room is a fantastic setting for gatherings, lit by a trio of Roark 40″ Modular Ring Chandeliers by Ralph Lauren.

garibaldi cafe

A Historic District favorite for over 30 years, Garibaldi Cafe is housed in a former 19th-century Germania firehouse. The menu features creative Southern and world class Italian-influenced dishes. The intimate atmosphere of the dining room and bar is romantically lit by elegant antique chandeliers and and Ruhlmann Sconces by E.F. Chapman.
