Toronto designers Elizabeth Metcalfe and Nicole Webster of Elizabeth Metcalfe Interiors + Design have established a reputation for creating interiors rooted in classic design with modern sensibility. Without exception, every eye-catching space in the firm’s portfolio is a thoughtful union of beauty and functionality. We are thrilled to share a few of these spaces with you as we shine our spotlight on Elizabeth Metcalfe Interiors + Design!

“Our ultimate goal is to give our clients a home where they feel they have always belonged – a home that respects who they are and how they want to live. I want to take their breath away.” – Elizabeth Metcalfe


“One of my favorite and most-revered designers is Barbara Barry. Her famous quote, “When I think about what moves me most in life, it is beauty” sums up my sentiments as well.” – Elizabeth Metcalfe

“Beauty makes the world a better place – it quietly asks for our attention, commands that we pause and acknowledge it, and leaves us feeling calmer and happier.” – Elizabeth Metcalfe

With a signature aesthetic that seamlessly blends refined modernism with West Coast ease, Kelly Wearstler has revolutionized the meaning of modern American design. Well known for her triumphs in luxury hotel and residential design, Kelly’s ever-growing lifestyle brand boasts collections of furniture, lighting, rugs, fabrics, wall coverings, tiles, luxury bedding and home accessories.

We are thrilled to shine our spotlight on Kelly Wearstler this week and showcase a few of her instantly-iconic designs!


Kelly’s affinity for modernist art and architecture played a large part in her design of the Cubist series. The artful arrangement of three-dimensional sculptures and glass make these chandeliers striking in any setting.


Featuring a fractured glass technique unique to Kelly’s collection, the Liaison series channels her love of symmetry and soulful, sculptural form.


The Precision series features one of Kelly’s signature design elements: perforated metals. Light diffused through clouded glass creates a soft reflection against rich finishes, bringing a sense of depth to any space.


The Utopia series is inspired by Kelly’s love of nature and the coastal landscape of Southern California. Hand-carved bronze and her signature fractured glass evoke a raw yet luxurious texture.

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.”

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

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

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.

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

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

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!

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!

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!
