Designer Lighting Brands: Spotlight on Currey & Company

Posted on Aug 28, 2015 by Andrea

While Currey & Company originally started in 1988 as a classic garden furnishings business, the company is now known for its distinctive lighting products, and for good reason. An amazing amount of attention and detail goes into the manufacturing of each piece.

The Currey website explains, "With a workforce in Atlanta and Currey International in the Philippines, Currey & Company brings to the marketplace merchandise that not only speaks of the touch of the human hand, but also utilizes a myriad of natural materials."

At Wolfers Lighting, we refer to Currey's lighting fixtures as fantastic statement pieces. When you choose a Currey product for your home, you are definitely making a statement, one that will spark wonderful conversations with family and friends alike.

Here are three products from this innovative designer light brand that always get people talking.

Outdoor Lighting Fixtures: Think Modern Forms

Posted on Aug 20, 2015 by Andrea

Have you noticed it's starting to get darker earlier? (Sigh.) And so it goes, along with the waning days of summer.

That said, we're not ready to pack it in for the year just yet. In fact, there's still plenty of porch-and-patio time to experience straight through October, provided you have good outdoor lighting for those late afternoons and evenings you spend lingering in the great outdoors.

Of course, good outdoor lighting is important year-round. It can…

  • Provide added safety—think lighted walkways and stairs
  • Offer added security—think lights that work on a timer or that have sensors
  • Dress up the exterior of your home (i.e. "curb appeal")
  • Produce the right ambiance for outdoor events and special occasions, such as BBQs, birthday parties, romantic dinners on the backyard deck, and so forth
  • Allow you to bring your unique design aesthetic and POV to the outside of your home
  • Create added effects for things like pools and fountains

Now is a great time to think about your outdoor lighting fixtures, meaning your wall lights, pole mounted lights, and outdoor pendants, which serve as the “jewelry of the home."

Below, you'll find several of our favorites from one of the leaders in the industry: Modern Forms. These LED fixtures are fantastic modern pieces that add glamour and are easy to use/install.

Head Back to School (& Work) with Designer Desk Lamps

Posted on Aug 10, 2015 by Andrea

We hate to state the obvious, but the summer of 2015 is fading fast. In a few short weeks, everyone will be heading back to school and work, and those lazy days by the pool will be nothing more than a fleeting memory.

Don't worry—we're not going to leave you on such a sad note. Here’s something to cheer you up. 

Say hello to our designer desk lamps, which are waiting for you to add to the right dorm room, home office, off-campus apartment, office cube, study, or den.

1. Mosso Pro LED Desk Lamp from Koncept. When it comes to desk lamps, Koncept is a visionary designer creating sleek, easy-to-move products like the Mosso Pro, which is a favorite in our showrooms.

Koncept describes it like this: "Delivering a phenomenal 99 lumens per watt efficiency, Mosso Pro changes light colors from warm to cool and anything in between. An intuitive built-in touch strip allows for effortless continuous dimming."

Not only that, but the occupancy sensor will turn off when you walk away (a must-have for anyone who forgets to turn off lights, like kids). Check it out in person: the Mosso Pro is on display in our Waltham and Allston lighting showrooms.
