Q: What is the hottest new trend in residential lighting?
A: LumiSheet is the revolutionary new product on the market created to beautifully illuminate semi-precious, translucent stone.
This is an acrylic panel that lays down underneath the stone and can be used for islands, backsplashes, floors, stairwells, and walls. If you are using translucent stone in your home project, you are most likely spending tens of thousands on the materials. With an investment like this, it is crucial that the lighting system you chose does not fail over time. There are many imitations out there which have mimicked the LumiSheet patent, and consumers need to be aware that only the LumiSheet product itself should be specified. It’s an amazing advancement in technology for lighting designers, as there is nothing
this product can’t light!
Q: Why is it important to consult with a professional lighting designer when replacing or putting new lighting in your home?
A: Lighting is currently in the midst of an LED technology revolution, and it is important to understand the way that these changes can affect your home and your lifestyle.
So many factors—color temperature, brightness, size, lumens, energy efficiency, the final expense—should be considered when selecting new lighting. Additionally, knowledge of safety and building codes is essential. For example, the 12-foot chandelier (above, left) connects to a 32-foot ceiling and it gives you just as much drama from down below as you get from the second floor. And we fitted it with LEDs so there’s no heat and we shouldn’t have to change a bulb for 20 years. A professional lighting designer takes all of these important factors into consideration, as well as assists with the decorative decisions, so that you are pleased with your investment for years to come.
