LightingShowroom.com is the lighting supplier for a new private residence in Armidale, New South Wales, Australia. According to Wickowski, "Our challenge was to provide a modern lighting package that retained the cultural flavor of traditional Australia in a modern design. The inspiration for the job was the Quattro collection by Fredrick Ramond Lighting." She added, "We've supplied lighting for projects in many countries but this is our first project in New South Wales. We look forward to serving other unique needs in Australia in the future."
Anita Turner, the LightingShowroom.com lead for the project, said "Our goal was to reflect the atmosphere of traditional strong Australia with a modern chandelier. The design goals were rather specific in that we had to have chandeliers that projected a sense of robust strength with a light and forward looking modern flair. We work closely with Fredrick Ramond Lighting and were able to deliver the perfect blend of modern engineering and strong styling to meet the customer's needs."
Armidale is located on the New England Tablelands in northern New South Wales about midway between Sydney and Brisbane and is only two hours from the coast. It enjoys a warm summer, tones of amber during the autumn, a crisp winter and an exhilarating spring, unlike most of Australia. Armidale was first settled in the early 1830s, following the earlier exploration of the area by John Oxley. It was named after Armadale on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. Oxley recommended the region for grazing, and soon early pioneers set up small farms in the locality. The town, which was surveyed in 1848 and gazetted in 1849, was established to provide a market and administration for the farms, but soon after gold was discovered at nearby Rocky River and Gara Gorges, and a gold rush ensued, enlarging the town rapidly in the 1850s. As a growing metropolitan city it is attracting a sophisticated professional class and is destined to be a major hub between Sydney and Brisbane.
Wickowsi said, "LightingShowroom.com is one of the top 5 online retailers of lighting products in the US and has been serving a growing domestic and international clientele of discriminating owners looking for a full service supplier. Our selection as the supplier for the lighting needs of the Armidale site is because of our dedication to meeting the customer's needs and our extensive experience supporting high end domestic and international projects."
