When Emmy Rossum purchased her pre-war apartment in Midtown Manhattan, she knew it would need a lot of work. The actress enlisted ELLE DECOR and designer Antonino Buzzetta to transform her 800-square-foot “pied-à-teardown” into the home of her dreams.

The style Rossum sought to achieve was “chic, European, the look of a modern girl who has inherited her grandmother’s stuff. I wanted it to have a young energy, but with old-fashioned touches,” she told Buzzetta. The living room features an antique fireplace Rossum found while shopping with her mother at the Marché aux Puces in Paris.

The herringbone wood floors were among the only original elements to remain after the extensive renovation. In the new build, Buzzetta added architectural features and refreshed the built-in bookshelves to channel the history of the 1928 building.

Irving Penn photographs and an antique chandelier (see similar style below) Rossum inherited from her grandmother grace the elegant dining area.

Buzzetta created extra surface space in the compact kitchen by tearing down a wall and building a breakfast bar in its place. To brighten the ebonized cabinetry, he selected Caesarstone quartz countertops and pair of globe pendants inspired by vintage subway lights.

When choosing finishes, “Mixing metals is a much more relaxed approach,” Buzzetta said. He selected brass task lights and a timeless crystal chandelier with polished nickel accents in the bedroom. The soothing wall color is Farrow & Ball’s Parma Gray.

Linear bath sconces were a sleek solution in the bathroom where wall space was limited. The sink, walls and mosaic floor are outfitted in Ann Sacks marble.

From the day Steven Kendrick founded Structures Building Company in 1999, his mission was clear: simplify the complex process of custom home building and remodeling for his clients. It wasn’t long before Structures developed a reputation for crafting some of the most beautiful and energy-efficient homes in the Charleston area. Our showroom has had the pleasure of working with Steven and his team to bring their clients’ visions to life, one light at a time. Get inspired by a few of our favorite homes by Structures Building Company and shop their hand-selected lighting looks! Photography by Holger Obenaus.

Architectural details can have a huge impact on a home’s design. Instead of keeping an  architect on staff, Structures works closely with many of the top firms in the Charleston area. With their help, clients can choose the architect whose individual style and design philosophy most closely matches their own.

Structures’ expertise is building on the coastal landscapes of Charleston, Daniel Island, Mt. Pleasant, I’On Village, Kiawah Island and surrounding areas.

The design/build team works with local vendors and suppliers to source the highest quality materials and finishes for every budget. Clients enjoy this simplified approach to selecting fixtures, appliances, color palettes and much more.

This summer, Domino partnered with New York’s hottest up-and-coming interior designers to transform four apartments at 15 William Street in the lower Manhattan Financial District. We had the pleasure of working with J + G Design, Dekar Design, and Antonino Buzetta on the first-ever shoppable showhouse.

 37I : J + G DESIGN

With a mantra of “uptown sensibility with downtown flair,” Jennifer Hunter and Georgie Hambright of J+G Design strive to balance glamour with relaxed elegance in every project they take on.  The talented duo selected an array of AERIN lighting to achieve everyday luxury in their family-friendly apartment.

Native New Yorkers and Georgetown graduates, Dolores Suarez and Caroline Grant’s design process starts with embracing the architectural bones of a space. The ultra-modern apartments of 15 William inspired them to create warmth by layering textures and bold colors. A Bronze and Alabaster Large Terri Table Lamp by Thomas O’Brien accents a clever side table that doubles as storage space.

Antonino Buzzetta’s innovative use of color creates a tranquil and intimate setting marrying both natural and urban elements. Each room featured bold artwork and accents including our Burt Table Lamp by Alexa Hampton, which feels extremely contemporary in the White Marble finish despite it’s traditional silhouette.

As a new addition to the DC design community, we couldn’t wait to get involved with the eighth annual DC Design House. Several of the participating designers showcased their talents with pieces from our lighting collection to transform the “modern farmhouse” adjacent to the McLean, VA countryside. We are thrilled to share this first look at the stunning finished spaces!

David Benton of Rill Architects designed the downstairs hallway to function as a sitting area, home office, and overall “happy place.” He brought light to the windowless hallway with a painting by artist Dennis Kirk, called “Old Dominion Sky,” accented by a McClain Picture Light in Hand-Rubbed Antique Brass. A Roark Modular Ring Chandelier hangs from the paneled ceiling.

The Art Aficionado Lounge, designed by Terri Pakravan of Decor Dose, LLC features a cozy reading corner complete with leather chair, beverage tray and a Charlton Floor Lamp in White.

Christopher Patrick’s master suite decor was inspired by a drawing of a necklace he saw at the recent Cartier exhibit at the Hillwood Museum. Simple Scallop Wall Sconces light the mirrors in the bath. The honeycomb pendant is custom by Niermann Weeks. If you love the Niermann Weeks look (and who doesn’t?) coming this summer you can shop their collection for Visual Comfort & Co. on our website and in all Circa Lighting showrooms!

You’ve seen their work taking over your Pinterest boards and Instagram feed. Now you’ll get a monthly dose of their designs as contributors to Domino Mag. This week we celebrate Circa Lighting client and husband + wife team Syd and Shea, the creative duo behind Studio McGee!

The couple transformed the top floor of a century-old brick building to serve as their design studio. They freshened the space with white paint, colorful accents, natural wood tones and most importantly: beautiful lighting! They selected rows of Large Eugene Pendant Lights in Hand-Rubbed Antique Brass over a work surface and a Gaios Table Lamp to light their credenza.

Syd and Shea are originally from Orange County, and recently relocated to Salt Lake City to open their full-service design studio. They travel between California and Utah to work on projects for clients both on the coast and in the mountains. Here are some of our favorite applications of Circa Lighting from the beautiful portfolio of Studio McGee:

“I’m consistently inspired by the ‘feeling’ of home. Every client has a different definition of what makes them feel both proud and comfortable of where they live. However, the common theme is that home is being surrounded by things and people you love – and that is what I love most about what I do.”

I love the Small Mykonos Chandelier by E.F. Chapman because of its modern take on a classic chandelier shape. The mix of angled and curved edges allows it to compliment a rectangular or round table!

– Alison S.  |  Sales Center

The Thornton Floor Lamp by Suzanne Kasler is my favorite! It can read contemporary or transitional, and its scale and tailored shade are great for smaller spaces.

– Dominique V.  |  Showroom Manager, Charleston

I love the mix of metals and classic design of the Small Hicks Pendant by Thomas O’Brien. It looks great in all kinds of applications, from traditional to modern!

– Courtney S.  |  Learning & Performance Manager

linda ruderman design

My clients love the Double Twist Chandelier for the same reasons I do. It’s whimsical and fun! I admire the attention to detail in all of Eric Cohler’s pieces.
– Angie T.  |  Sales Center
The Dean 12″ Picture Light by Alexa Hampton is a simple way to add a little something extra to your space without changing the whole room. What better way to do it than highlighting a piece of art?
– Lauren C.  |  Showroom Manager, Atlanta

house of turquoise

You simply cannot go wrong with the Caged Lantern by Eric Cohler! I love the geometric design, and the square paper shade softens the light to a nice ambient glow.

– Margo R.  |  Sales Center

la dolce vita

The Quatrefoil Floor Lamp by Suzanne Kasler has been my favorite since my first day at Circa! The open shape in the center makes this piece unobtrusive and feminine, and I love the Renaissance feel.

– Courtney B.  |  Showroom Sales, Savannah

I love the Jacqueline Chandelier by AERIN because it’s versatile and clean, yet fancy! It looks amazing in nurseries, kitchens and everything in-between.

– Heather O.  |  Sales Center

megan winters – traditional home

My favorite piece is the Westbury Double Tier Chandelier by Ralph Lauren. The design aesthetic of the Westbury series is perfect for a casual yet elegant home.  They remind me of my days of hunter jumper competitions. The polished nickel finish has a clean, unfussy look that I love.

– Lisa C.  |  Accounting

I’m drawn to the unique look of the Ruhlmann Single Sconce by E.F. Chapman. It’s a great fixture for bathroom settings, and my clients love all four finish options!

-Jeffrey S.  |  Showroom Sales, Chicago

kelley & company home

Since the Eugene Pendant by Thomas O’Brien ships with 12 feet of cord, it can be shortened on-site during installation. I’ve seen them used in almost every room, but over a kitchen island is where they really shine!

– Kristi O.  |  Sales Center

edward postiff interiors

The Simple Scallop Sconce by Barbara Barry has a certain softness that creates an intimate feel in a room. The curvature of the body paired with the scalloped shade is pure perfection!

– Liz H.  |  Sales Center

There are few things I love as much as I love a pair of Medium Goodman Hanging Lamps by Thomas O’Brien over the island of an all-white kitchen.

– Genevieve S.  |  Showroom Sales, Atlanta

The Tiny Terri Lamp by Thomas O’Brien is a bright little thing! It’s a great accent piece for your bookshelf, nightstand or mantel top. You’ll love it forever!
– Jennifer S.  |  Marketing

The Charlton Floor Lamp is a must for mid-century design lovers! The slim silhouette of this AERIN piece is equally striking in both matte black and white finishes. The antique brass accents add just the right amount of shine!
– Kari C.  |  Human Resources

anne hagerty interiors

My favorite fixture is the beautiful Hampton Pendant by AERIN. The Burnished Silver Leaf  is such a fresh interpretation of a classic finishing technique.
– Paige F.  |  Showroom Sales, Savannah

donna elle seaside living

The Bryant Sconce by Thomas O’Brien has a medium base bulb, which makes it a great choice for just about any application. It’s an outstanding price point for such a stylish fixture!

– Teri E.  |  Showroom Sales, Atlanta

lisa britt designs

The Quatrefoil Table Lamp by Suzanne Kasler looks just as elegant in a room full of patterns and textures as it does against a clean, minimal backdrop. It’s eye-catching in any space!

– Ali M.  |  Sales Center

brooke girty design

I love the classic line work of the Darlana Linear Pendant by E.F. Chapman. It mixes beautifully with so many different fixture styles! My favorite application of this pendant is over a kitchen island or dining table.
