Lighting Trends 2016: Our Recap of "Lightovation"

Posted on Feb 29, 2016 by Andrea

Last month, Jeff Seigal (one of our owners) flew to Dallas for "Lightovation," the annual international lighting show. Every year, manufacturers bring out their newest lighting products and innovations. (Check out the article we wrote about last year's show.)

We always walk away from this event with interesting news on lighting manufacturers and the latest lighting trends to pay attention to, and this year's show did not disappoint. Here are three nuggets…

Hubbardton Forge Brings Home the Gold

It came as no surprise to us that Vermont-based Hubbardton Forge won the 2016 ARTS Award for Lighting Fixtures. It's their first time winning this prestigious award—an award that's been in existence for nearly three decades. As our regular readers know, we're huge fans of this visionary company (check out this profile we penned).

Hubbardton Forge Introduces Its New Gloss White Finish

 

Hubbardton showed everyone why it won the big award by introducing its new Gloss White Finish, which the company describes as "a contemporary look that would be right at home in many of today’s modern settings. It’s available as a finish on both steel and aluminum."

Hubbardton Forge's new gloss white looks fantastic!

 

We'll let you know the minute the Gloss White Finish is available in our showrooms. In the meantime, there are still plenty of other Hubbardton Forge products to fall in love with, like the Corona Pendant, which we currently show in Dark Smoke (pictured above in Gloss White, Dark Smoke on display in Waltham and Allston).

As for more great fixtures in the Gloss White finish, here's an expansion of its Flux Sconce. (Yes, we couldn't take our eyes off it, either.) It comes in four finishes, including the new Gloss White-- these will be on display soon-- we'll let you know when!

For comparison, here's Hubbardton's original Flux LED Pendant, which is on display in Waltham and Allston in their Vintage Platinum finish.

Another Hubbardton expansion includes its newest Cityscape Sconce. This is sure to get people's attention (and we have the original on display in our showrooms as well).

Hubbardton Forge expands their "Cityscape" collection to include this great sconce.

You can check out Hubbardton Forge's new lighting product portfolio here.

And, of course, follow us at Wolfers. We'll let you know when these exciting new products hit our showrooms.
