Making 28

April 27, 2012

Bocci’s 28 Series is the perfect custom chandelier.  Well, its’ actually more than that.  Check out the video by New Document below …

We love that it began as a creative experiment.  What happens when you suction air from a sphere in the process of glass blowing?  As it turns out, something wonderful!  Add light, color and voila … 28.

Completely handmade to order.  Cluster, staggered, single, multiple.  Clear or color.  You be the author, Bocci will blow the glass.  What could be better?

Light and Magic

April 20, 2012

Check out this edition of Design Gossip.  Rob Forbes, founder of Design Within Reach, explores lighting “design” in nature and in the built environment.  His photo essay is beautiful, and I like his willingness to explore the idea that “one of lighting’s other tasks might be to rekindle our interest in the character, magic, and elusive nature of light itself. The better designers do this unwittingly I believe. The perforations in the dome of Castiglioni’s Arco could have derived from seeing sunlight spots on people or on forms just as I witnessed in that café on Mallorca … I’m treated to a light exhibition every morning from my apartment in San Francisco. The more dramatic and colorful lightscape is perhaps the more seductive, but I’m partial to the other one. I see the lights on the buildings and the headlights from the cars and the neon café signage and it make me realize that lighting is all around us in its magical form, if we choose to see it.”

SR Hughes invites you to explore the ideas behind all the creative solutions that exist in lighting your environment.  Why not begin with a thoughtfully conceived building that invites light inside to live with you?  We’re constantly in search of innovative decorative lighting to help our clients complete environments that embrace “the character, magic, and elusive nature of light itself.”

Bright Ideas

This little ditty from your friends at NY Times T Magazine is fertilizer for your brain to guarantee a spring-y spring!  The right light is so often overlooked, but it’s as important as good soil to a beautiful garden. The key to making your space sing!

One thing your friends at T Mag didn’t know … Roll & Hill, Foscarini, and Kartell are only three of the dozen lighting brands available at SR Hughes.  Right here in little ‘ol Oklahoma!

When you have the help of the world’s best lighting designers behind you … it’s one of the easiest decisions to make.

For a fresh perspective on how to make your garden glow (yes, there are plenty of outdoor lights too), stop into our Tulsa showroom at Center 1, 35th & Peoria.
