A registered historic structure of the City of Laguna Beach, Casa Laguna Hotel & Spa reopened to guests this Spring after an extensive redesign with Martyn Lawrence Bullard at the helm. The Spanish Colonial-style estate overlooking Victoria Beach has operated as a hotel (and at one time, an artist’s colony) since 1946, and serves today as the ultimate destination for design enthusiasts. Tour the all-new Casa Laguna and shop the lighting looks found throughout!

 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.

Elizabeth Newman’s design philosophy is to create spaces that are classic and livable but then layered with eclecticism. Based in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, she is a rising talent and treasured client of our Charleston showroom. Elizabeth gave us an exclusive first look at her recently completed Kiawah Island project which we are thrilled to share with you today! Photography by Nickie Cutrona.


Elizabeth’s work is a beautiful demonstration of how effortlessly the pieces from our designer collections can be mixed. In the living room she paired earthy Gannet Table Lamps in Marbled Sienna with a Darlana Medium Lantern in Aged Iron.


The owners of the beach house were excited to incorporate fun artwork and classic fixtures like the Primitive Swing Arm Wall Lamp in Hand-Rubbed Antique Brass into their window seat area.

Elizabeth paired a Gustavian Lantern in Aged Iron with Symmetric Single Twist Sconces in Bronze to light the crisp white stairway.


When designing a family home, Elizabeth names comfort and livability as key elements to her vision. A slip-covered reading chair is lit by a Tripod Floor Lamp in Tudor Brown.

Elizabeth continued her palette of organic textures and colors in the bedrooms. Gene Swing Arm Wall Lamps in Natural Brass add a hint of shine.

The bath reflects Elizabeth’s love of clean lines and symmetry. Stanway Sconces in Polished Nickel light the vanity and double sink.

The guest bedroom features a soothing arrangement of blue and turquoise accents, including a pair of Culloden Table Lamps in Pebbled Aquamarine.


For the master bathroom vanity, Elizabeth selected one of her favorite go-to pieces: the Vendome Sconce in Polished Nickel.

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.

The Rancic’s are now full-time residents of the Windy City! Our Chicago showroom had the pleasure of working with designer Lonni Paul to light Bill and Giuliana’s 1880s Gold Coast brownstone, which is featured in the September issue of Traditional Home. Get inspired and shop the looks from the celebrity couple’s new abode!


The soothing blue and ivory color palette of the formal living room is a nod to the couple’s previous home in Los Angeles. Polished nickel light fixtures tie the traditional furnishings with the contemporary accents, including a colorful, attention-commanding Tony Tasset painting over the fireplace.


The all-white kitchen features Calcutta marble surfaces and stainless steel appliances. Natural light pours in from the surrounding windows, and a pair of polished nickel lanterns provide task and ambiance light over the island.

From timeless traditional to sleek and clean-lined, Houston designer J. Randall Powers follows the internal rhythm of each project to its own ideal conclusion. His latest masterpiece – the grand residence of Sheridan and John Eddie Williams – landed him the cover story of Veranda’s July/August 2015 issue. Powers’ devotion to the finest points of design is reflected in his lighting collection, which includes some of our most popular pieces to date. Shop the J. Randall Powers collection online or in any of our showrooms.

The history of interior design and decoration is always invention and re-invention. I like to design lighting that is connected to the highest ideals of classical design. The rooms and lighting I admire most express classical balance, pure lines, and an inner logic.

– J Randall PowersVC_SP2025PN_F

Design discipline is the key to everything I do. Regardless of the style, I admire restraint and subtlety. Less is more. I aim never to over-design or over-decorate. Composing harmonious and pleasing spaces with beautiful lighting and wonderful interesting objects is always the goal.”

Napa Valley natives Robert Jr. and Lydia Mondavi combine wine country’s casual elegance with coastal charm in their new Beaufort, SC retreat. We were thrilled to be a partner on this project and design a lighting scheme fitting of the couple’s stunning beach home.

Trex-354Rear Porch InteriorRear Porch Upper

The home, designed by Reu Architects, sits on the banks of Port Royal Sound and overlooks Parris Island. Multi-level screened porches at the rear exterior allow the couple to take full advantage of their picturesque waterfront view.


The dazzling front exterior is peppered with Suffork Lanterns of various sizes. A Darlana Medium Lantern hangs in the foyer, with Small Chelsea Reflection Sconces on either side of a painting from Rhett Gallery in Beaufort.


The kitchen and casual dining room embrace natural light with unadorned windows and an airy color scheme. A set of custom Pimlico Double Swing Arm Wall Lamps provides additional light to the counter tops, and a Large Flemish Linear Pendant hangs above the bench-style dining table.

Plush linen couches and eye-catching prints create an inviting atmosphere in the living room. The vintage oak finish of the Roark 50″ Modular Ring Chandelier was a natural choice for the couple, who floored their home entirely with reclaimed wood from decommissioned wine barrels. A stylish Tripod Floor Lamp and patterned stone Stockard Table Lamp balance the room with ease.


The simple and spacious master bedroom features the Large Dexter Chandelier, the alabaster Yumeko Table Lamp at the bedside, and the Parish Floor Lamp.


The Spherical Cube Pendant adds elegance to the master bathroom, which also features a trio of Easterly Sconces over his & hers sinks.

The bedroom designed for Rob & Lydia’s son, Robert III, features the Bryant LanternThe Pixie Desk Lamp, and the Dauphine Table Lamp to accent its nautical theme. Downward-facing Graydon Bath Lights flank the mirror in the child’s bathroom.

Guest BathGuest Bedroom

In one guest bath, a simple Vendome Double Sconce lights the mirror. A pair of Anita Table Lamps embellish either side of the brightly patterned bedspread.

The Mondavi home would not be complete without a wet bar and state-of-the-art wine gallery. The bar’s backsplash is made of reclaimed wood from Mondavi Reserve barrells, and is lit by a Symbolic Fragment Wall Sconce in bronze. A Cranbrook Lantern hangs in the pantry of the gallery, which displays and preserves a selection of the Mondavi family’s ever-growing collection of wines.
