Help Wolfers Lighting Celebrate Boston Design Week

Posted on Mar 04, 2016 by Christine

One of the coolest things about Boston Design Week is that it's not actually just one week: it's a 12-day citywide event celebrating designers, design and lighting showrooms, urban planners, interior designers, and more from all over greater Boston.

Here are the dates for this year's Boston Design Week: March 30-April 10.

According to the Boston Design Week website, this special event "seeks to increase public awareness and appreciation of all aspects of design, foster recognition of the vital role design plays in our lives, and bring new audiences to a wide array of design industries and organizations."

At Wolfers Lighting, this is our second year participating in Boston Design Week, and we're especially excited for the seminars we have planned for 2016:

Join us for our Seminars on LED Kitchen and Bath Lighting

FREE Seminar: LED Applications for the Kitchen and Bath

Join us on Saturday, April 2nd from 9:30 am – 11 am in our Allston lighting showroom OR Thursday, April 7th from 11am – 12:30 pm in our Waltham lighting showroom.

Three Lighting Trends That Are Sure to Inspire

Posted on Jul 17, 2015 by Christine

At the beginning of the year, you'll find plenty of "what's trending" lists in every category imaginable. The problem is that many of those lists involve predictions, rather than actual trends.

 Now that we're past the halfway point in 2015 (how'd that happen?), we thought we'd take a step back and share the real lighting trends we've been seeing in our lighting showrooms for the last six months. Get ready to be inspired!

Say Hello to Warm Metallics. 

This isn't a huge surprise since metallics have been popular in the fashion industry for the last several years. Let's just say that skirts and shoes aren't the only items you can bathe in the warm glow of gold, brass, and so forth. We're seeing increased interest in lighting fixtures with warm metallic finishes—a wonderful look that can truly help transform a space.

Hubbardton Forge just came out with its new "soft gold" finish, and it's as lovely as it sounds. The soft gold finish on this table lamp has easy-going appeal and can work well in a variety of spaces in your home or office. We have this new finish on display in both showrooms, come on in and see it in person.
