Tom Dixon Makes Things Better

May 5, 2012

Get a load of this article recently published in the Wall Street Journal.  I love how Tom Dixon’s DIY attitude started him along the way … creativity and experimentation keep it all humming along today.  Authentic ideas and curiosity … I think that is why there is an exciting vibe about the Tom Dixon brand …

The release of Stamp lights and candle holders at this spring’s Salone del Mobile in Milan gives us more than an object to point at and say “cool.”  It spurs us to imagine a world in which high tech industrial technology may even allow a small local shop to custom design and produce goods for clients as they wait.  Take a look …

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

April 14, 2012

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.

Give Thanks … For Kelvin on Sale!

November 20, 2011

Address the task at hand … for all of those on your list who need a little well-placed light … a little crisp, clean style … a warm, efficient companion at bedside or on the desktop …

May we suggest you introduce them to Kelvin LED from Flos?

Oh, and get it while it’s hot … special pricing over Thanksgiving weekend only … at SR Hughes.

Artful Affordable

November 18, 2011

Who knew brass could lose its yesteryear stodginess and become today’s hot metal?  By combining the British industrial revolution’s materials (cast iron, enamel, copper, brass, marble, and solid wood) with today’s industrial processes, Tom Dixon has been able to breathe new energy into grandma’s candlesticks …

Case in point:  ETCH CANDLE HOLDER, $55

Using the technology employed to cut circuit boards, detailed designs are photo-etched onto brass sheets.  Then, all unexposed areas are dissolved with acid, leaving the intricate patterns cut into metal.  Flat-packed for you to assemble and your handiwork is part of the process.  Hardware is included so that you can join multiple holders together for your own sculptural table scape.

The warm glow is all you:  ETCH PENDANT, $285

Another great idea from Tom Dixon … whether to spiff up your own digs in advance of holiday visitors or to give to that stylish, creative person on your list … is the Magically Oversized Knob!

Starting at $55 for the 4″ diameter, these thick chunks of colored glass mount to your wall so that you can hang your coat or dog leash in the mud room when you come in the back door.  Or, you can mix color and size (large is 10″ round) to create art on your wall wherever you hang your hat!

The gift department at SR Hughes is bigger than ever!  You’ll find these and more innovative ideas for giving only at SR Hughes.  We invite you to support local Oklahoma businesses wherever you buy this season:

Ingo Maurer: Super Natural!

October 5, 2011

Did you read the New York Times this weekend?  The amazing wizard of lighting design, Ingo Maurer, had a fantastic project published there!  This kind of artistry is exactly why we feel honored to represent Ingo here in little ‘ol Oklahoma.  Click the photo below to view a slide show of this fantastic light sculpture and read more about it.

Though amazing commissioned projects play a key note in Ingo Maurer’s repertoire, one needn’t live in an 19th Century home with its own private cathedral to own a piece of his light-artwork.  Production pieces start at $175 … visit the SR Hughes showroom (Center 1 in Tulsa) to find out more!
