Our Bestselling Undercabinet LED Lighting

Posted on Mar 25, 2016 by Andrea

Undercabinet LED lighting is all the rage, and for good reason. These convenient light fixtures provide perfect task lighting to countertops while accentuating the countertop and backsplash materials.

Below, you'll find details regarding our bestselling undercabinet lighting: 

  • Unilume LED Slimline from Tech Lighting
  • AFX Noble Pro
  • Juno Pro-Series LED

Let's get to it.

  1. Unilume LED Slimline from Tech Lighting. This sleek light comes in black or white, so it will easily work with whatever aesthetic you have going on in your space. Plus, you can choose from three color temperatures (2700k, 3000k, 3600k), which provides you with even more control. Another great feature? Thanks to the remote phosphor lens, when the light is on, it produces a diffused, evenly lit surface (as opposed to seeing "dots" of light on your countertops). Other details: less than ¾" high and comes with a 5-year warranty.
  1. AFX Noble Pro. The AFX Noble Pro has tunable color temperatures, which means you can easily switch between 2700k, 3000k, and 4000k-- very useful, as you can choose the perfect color temperature once installed. Another plus? This fixture is easy to hardwire. Or if you don't want to bother with that, you can opt for the version that comes with a cord and plug. Finishes include White Gloss, Brushed Aluminum, and Oil Rubbed Bronze. This undercabinet fixture also comes with a 5-year warranty.

Lighting Trends: All About Orbs

Posted on Mar 18, 2016 by Steve

Orbs are equal parts decorative and functional, and we saw them everywhere at this year's Lightovation light show in Dallas, so the trend is here to stay.

This is no surprise to us, of course. Thanks to their globe-like shape and abundant finishes, materials, and styling options, orbs can work beautifully in a variety of settings, including foyers, kitchens, and dining rooms. Not to mention they cast plenty of light up and down.

Check out some of our top picks in orb light fixtures below:  

  1. Luna from Crystorama. On display in our Waltham showroom, this eight light orb chandelier from Crystorama boasts English Bronze on the outside and Antique Gold on the inside, a combo that's sure to wow any space.
  1. Oberlin from Murray Feiss. This two-light pendant adorned with graduated Clear Rondure beads is part of the Oberlin Collection from Murray Feiss. Two LED modules shine light down and up to illuminate the spectacular crystal beads, and the "warm-dimming" feature means that this orb will imitate the warming glow of incandescent as it dims (i.e. as incandescent lights dim, they glow more amber). This gorgeous light is coming soon to both showrooms.

Lutron Electronics Shines the Spotlight on Wolfers Lighting

Posted on Mar 11, 2016 by Andrea

In its winter 2016 edition of Lightshow magazine, Lutron Electronics did a write-up on Wolfers Lighting, which served as a test location for Lutron's Caséta® Wireless system.

We wrote about this system last fall, but here are just a few of the reasons why we're such a big fan of this innovative lighting product:

  • It's incredibly easy to pair with the Apple HomeKit and the Lutron app
  • It's easy to set up to the Lutron Smart Bridge
  • It's easy to control from anywhere
  • Plus so much more

In addition to testing in the showrooms, our lighting consultants also installed the Caséta system in their homes. This allowed our consultants to experience the products on a personal level and to provide keen insights to customers.

Kate Hazen, assistant manager for the Waltham showroom, discussed her experience: "I installed Caséta Wireless in our family room, where we have a combination of overhead fixtures and floor lamps. We enjoy the convenience of dimming the lights while we're watching TV, as well as the ability to turn off all the lights in the room from one location. I tend to control the lights with Pico® remotes more than my smartphone, as I don't usually carry my phone with me when I'm in the house."

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:
