   20% OFF PERFECTLY PORTABLE SALE NORBURN We are preparing for the changing season ahead with our Perfectly Portable Sale which will run from August 14 to September 16, 2017. All regular priced lamps and mirrors will be 20% off for this limited time.

So what makes portables so great?

1) SET THE MOOD

Lamps can soften shadows and provide ambient lighting for conversation or when reading. For instance, the LED Outdoor Lanterns with Bluetooth Speaker from Kichler offers ambient lighting that is dimmable and serves as an output for music when entertaining guests, or simply relaxing outdoors.

2)PRACTICAL

Portable lamps give the option to add a layer of light to a room without having to rewire which can be costly and unconventional for some homeowners. This is especially the case for older homes that bring up hidden costs of installing a new fixture which may require more work. In addition, portable lamps are also useful for providing task lighting for sewing, reading, or writing. The Valeo Floor Lamp from Cerno can offer ambient lighting to a space as an alternative for a fixture. The floor lamp is almost 8 feet tall and has an adjustable shade that can be lowered.

3) PORTABLE

Portable lamps are made of durable material but are not fixated to a single spot. Portable lamps can be moved to different areas or rooms that require an additional layer of light or a decorative element. This 2-Light Floor lamp from Dainolite has adjustable arms for versatile use, and has a mid-century modern aesthetic.

130F-BK-PC 2LT FLOOR LAMP MATTE BLACK DAINO

4)DECORATIVE

Portable lamps are also a great way to experiment with different styles to create a statement. Some lamps have replaceable shades which can enhance its visual appeal or match current decor. Portable lamps can also be a statement in and of itself, such as oversized floor lamps that can serve as general lighting for a room due to its scale or ornate lamps such as the Lynch Tiffany Table Lamp from Quoizel that has an intricate detailed glass shade.

TF1487T

5) SPACE

Table and Desk Lamps take minimal space, and also creates the illusion of a larger space when they are positioned in certain areas. For instance, when lamps are next to a wall such as when they are on top of a buffet or side table, they create a surface of light that makes the space appear larger. This is ideal in living rooms, dining rooms, and foyers where buffet and side tables are commonly used. The Saga Table Lamp from Dimond Lighting has a chocolate faux silk shade and a complimentary chocolate smoke glass base that provides the added illusion of a larger space.

lighting design trends

There are some new and exciting explorations of geometric shapes, both minimal and complex, that are becoming signature design elements in many contemporary lighting fixtures.

Check out the fixtures below for some great examples of this hot trend for 2017.

PLANAR PENDANT

The Planar pendant is influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright’s visionary Fallingwater home from the 1930’s. The LED pendant delivers clean, modern, gravity-defying lines that are sure to enhance high-end dining rooms and living rooms. The Planar is also handcrafted using steel at a Vermont forge.

A delicate three-dimensional weave of steel shows off design inspiration and whimsy. You have the option to choose from two different finishes – one for the light fixture and one for the sculptural element.

CALX PENDANT

The Calx pendant has been an absolute hit in our showroom. The combination of the warm walnut wood, brushed brass and geometric shape are sure to make this pendant a focal point in any space!

Nick Sheridan, designer and a co-founder of Cerno states,

“The Calx is a nice example of modern design where the methods and the materials themselves are integral to its very conception, aligning form and function, which creates a synergy that is evident. The fixture ultimately forms a square aperture but enjoys a beautifully simple faceted structure.”

ANGULAR CAGE PENDANT

A series of geometric cubes set at various angles with a black or silver finish. This pendant provides a great amount of light, has strong visual interest and is easily adaptable to LED technology. There is unexpected elegance to this fixture that you would not find in a basic geometric fixture.

LUNA MIRRORS

If you haven’t seen the Luna mirrors from Fleurco yet, you’re missing out!

Fleurco has been in the industry for 50 years, designing and manufacturing innovative freestanding bathtubs, shower bases, shower doors, and lighted mirrors. In the past months, we have introduce the Halo lighted mirror, and the Sunrize lighted mirror from the Luna Mirror collection.

SUNRIZE MIRROR HALO MIRROR

These lighted mirrors use the latest LED technology which reduces energy consumption, and saves money. But there’s more to the Luna mirrors than LED technology, that make them so alluring:

1) The Brightness

The Halo Lighted mirror can reach a brightness of up to 1725 lumens, while the Sunrize mirror provides 630 lumens. The bright light allows for better visibility for daily tasks.

2) The Colour

Both the Halo and Sunrize mirror have a kelvin temperature of 3500K which leans more towards white or cool tone. This is an ideal colour temperature for bathrooms because it appears brighter to the eyes and gives the impression of a clean space while enhancing contrast.

3) No Fog

Those who are fond of warm baths and showers are familiar with fogged mirrors. These lighted mirrors eliminate the need to clear off a mirror, due to their built-in defogger pads for a fog free reflection.

4) The Look

Lighted mirrors in a bathroom creates a luxury spa feel and enhances the value of a home. The Halo mirror is a back-lit mirror that creates an evenly distributed glow around the mirror. The light accentuates the mirror and brings a sense of depth to a room. The Sunrize emanates light from both the left and right side of the mirror which focuses more on illuminating the face for better visibility especially when grooming and applying makeup.

5) Safety & Warranty

These Luna Mirrors have been tested and certified for safety. They are UL and CUL certified, and IP44 rated. In other words, these lighted mirrors have passed testing to ensure that they are safe to be installed in particular areas of a washroom where they can potentially be exposed to moisture or splashed with water. In addition, these items are backed with a 5 year manufacturers warranty.

If you would like more information on Luna Mirrors by Fleurco, contact or visit our showroom. Our team of Specialist are always happy to help with both your lighting and bath needs.
