We continue to push on lighting design and stay on-trend--not only with our traditional and transitional offerings--but also with our expanding collections of contemporary, urban industrial and world market products," said Feiss president Maria Scutaro.
RYE, NY (PRWEB) January 09, 2013
Feiss, one of America’s top companies offering high-quality, fashion-forward interior and exterior residential lighting at an accessible price point, will debut more than 200 new products at the International January Dallas Lighting Market, January 17-21, 2013, at the Dallas Market Center, 2100 North Stemmons Freeway, Showroom #4010-TM.
“Our customers will notice many fresh new looks among our new product lines,” according to Feiss President Maria Scutaro. “We continue to push on design and stay on-trend—not only with our traditional and transitional offerings—but also with our expanding collections of contemporary, urban industrial and world market products.”
On-Trend: White on White
According to Scutaro, while white has always been a favorite in contemporary design, bright “white on whites” are seeping transitional and traditional designs as well. “There’s no better way to brighten and lift a space than with cool, white motif lighting—that’s why we’re introducing a Glossy White finish this year in addition to the other white finishes we have in our product portfolio.”
The new Feiss Maarid Collection is stunning in two contrasting finishes. Inspired by a large bird cage, Maarid’s tiered Semi-Gloss White frame is strung by hand with matching white acrylic beads. The Maarid’s Rustic Iron finish version is hand-strung with multi-colored hand polished stones in earth tone shades. Each chandelier comes with two finials—a long, turned finial plus a shorter round one—making it easy to change the piece’s height and look. The dimensions of the nine-light Maarid chandelier are 29-7/8” in diameter and 47-3/8” high. The collection has in total four chandeliers, a flush, a semi-flush and two wall sconces.
Two more examples of white on white fixtures from Feiss are the new, simple lines Peyton Saltspray and the best-selling Chateau Collection which, for 2013, has an added “Chateau Blanc” line extension. The Semi-Gloss White finish makes them well suited for all kinds of spaces. The Peyton Saltspray has five pieces it its line; the Chateau Blanc has four.
On-Trend: World Market
The Moroccan–inspired, new Wattson line by Feiss features shimmering, elongated oval-shaped glass beads—each hand-wired individually onto a solid metal frame. The light bulb-shaped pendants are available in two sizes, large for commercial applications (with dimensions of 15-3/4” in diameter and 29-1/2” high) and mini for residential (8-1/4” in diameter and 16-3/8” high). The new Wattson has three choices of glass bead colors and finishes: Amber with Burnished Silver Finish (shown), Clear with Chrome finish and Red with Dark Bronze finish. There’s also a matching wall sconce.
Inspired by the beautiful hand woven rugs of the Middle East, the new, four-item Kandira Collection by Feiss is named after the Turkish city. Its ancient screen-like pattern is laser cut in the cinnamon-colored steel panels to create transitional lighting fixtures that will last for years. Each piece—the three pendants and one sconce—has an oversized, turned spindle as a bottom finial to complete the look. The dimensions for the sconce are 8” wide, 12-5/8” high, and 4” deep.
On-Trend: Rustic Looks
The new, six-piece Alston collection by Feiss is inspired by a simplified, Country French cottage. Much in step with the current weathered barn look trend, the Alston collection’s chandeliers, mini-chandeliers and sconce are finished in a two-tone rustic finish of Charcoal Brick and features spearheaded arms in Antique Forged iron. The Alston chandelier’s center wood ball (in an Acorn finish) gives the illusion that its candles are floating over the circular armature. The five-light chandelier is 24” in diameter and 26-7/8” high.
On-Trend: Sparkle Still Shines for 2013
Scutaro said the Malia and Marcia—which she refers to as “sister collections”—are among the best examples of new Feiss fixtures that make a declarative sparkling statement in a room. The Marcia eight-light chandelier is more traditional with its Empire shape (featuring leaf details), and cascading, oval-shaped, chocolate truffle crystals interspersed with delicate chains. Marcia is finished in a warm and rich Rustic Iron finish. The Malia eight-light chandelier is part of a cooler, contemporary collection. The Malia collection has cleaner lines—and silver gray crystals interspersed with chains plus a Polished Nickel finish.
With its varying heights, the new Celebration Collection by Feiss captures the look of sparkling champagne-filled flutes being toasted in the air. The “flutes” are made of heavyweight crystal, and G9 halogen lamps create sparkles of light to simulate just-poured champagne. A Brushed Nickel finish with Natural Brass accents add to the contemporary look. Celebration has seven pieces in the new collection, including the six-light, multi-tiered chandelier; the dimensions are 21-1/8” high, 22-1/2” wide and 32-1/4” in diameter.
Other New Feiss Notables for 2013
The new Hugo Collection by Feiss is an updated, industrial version of the vintage scissor arm lamps from the 1950s. Adjustable arms can be extended to accommodate a large dining room table or retracted to fit a cozy table for two. Chandeliers have removable fabric shades to add to the versatility of this collection. The two-light billiard island chandelier is 40-3/8” long (fully extended), 13-3/4” wide and 15-7/8” high. The new seven-piece collection is available in Feiss’ new Bali Brass finish.
The new, modern Danish Denmark pendant by Feiss captures the current Scandinavian design trend. This piece is made of all natural, hand-woven bamboo. When lit, its warm glow shows all its design intricacies and the soft maize palette. Part of a four-piece collection, the larger Denmark pendant is 12” in diameter and 10” high.
The new Wadsworth four-piece bath collection by Feiss is a nod to the Art Deco era. Its three-tiered step design on the prominent fitters and opal-etched glass reflects the Collection’s inspiration of a checker-patterned drinking glass. Available in Chrome and Brushed Steel finishes, the Collection includes a one-, two-, three- and four-light vanity luminaire. The dimensions for the four-light vanity are 28-7/8” long X 5.25” high X 6-1/8” deep.
Casual and comfortable describe the new, six-fixture Feiss Menlo Park outdoor lighting Collection. Taking inspiration from a candle holder, Menlo Park crosses the boundaries of traditional and transitional styles. The simplified wrought iron turnings are offset by the smooth clear exterior glass. An interior "pillar candle" radiates a soft glow that’s easy on the eyes. Cut work windows on the top allow light to pass through, adding visual interest. Finished in Textured Black or Cinnamon, Menlo Park provides ambience to any entry. Pictured right is the hanging lantern, which is 10-1/8” in diameter and 19-1/4” high.
