The new Libby Langdon for Crystorama collections combine our lighting expertise with Libby’s interior design experience for beautiful, elegant lighting that will light up any home.
(PRWEB) May 29, 2014
Crystorama Lighting and Libby Langdon announced today new collections that reflect the interior designer’s easy, elegant style.
Langdon, whose designer skills and extensive portfolio have been featured in numerous consumer magazines and national television programs, has a signature style that combines classic lines with chic, modern twists to complement contemporary lifestyles.
“Crystorama has a history of quality craftsmanship inspired by the world around us,” said Brad Kleinberg, president of Crystorama Lighting. “The new Libby Langdon for Crystorama collections combine our lighting expertise with Libby’s interior design experience for beautiful, elegant lighting that will light up any home.”
In her first lighting licensing partnership, Libby Langdon is introducing three Crystorama collections: Jennings, Masefield, and Sylvan.
The Jennings Collection offers dynamic design, stunning light spread and just the right amount of bling. Jennings features a chic and timeless polished nickel pattern that gives a graphic feel without overpowering a space. The Jennings pattern is a best-selling Langdon original. An inner linen shade adds texture while a diffuser softens the light. Jennings is offered in five fixtures; large and small pendants, wall sconces, a semi-flush ceiling mount.
“I’m thrilled with the look of the Jennings Collection,” Langdon said. “It’s a soft geometric pattern that looks modern and fresh but is rooted in classic design. My goal was to design a collection with an updated look that will be relevant for many years. I really love the way the pattern is highlighted differently throughout the various fixtures. The large pendant shows the full scale version of the pattern whereas the wall sconce and the ceiling mount highlight a section of the pattern, allowing people to use several pieces from the same collection in the same space without it feeling too ‘matchy-matchy.’”
The Masefield Collection was inspired by the many clients Libby works with that want a classic yet fashion forward look. The bamboo frames of the fixtures gain a fresh perspective with an angular, sleek inner shade and an Olde Silver finish. The Masefield Collection is a new take on timeless design elements and the perfect balance between form and function. Masefield is offered in seven fixtures; large and small pendants, wall sconces, ceiling mounts.
“I find that bamboo can live beautifully in many different environments,” Langdon said. “It crosses the line between modern and classic. The shapes in the Masefield Collection will appeal to many different homeowners. This collection would work just as well with what I call a ‘Modern Preppy’ style – spaces infused with bright colors and geometric patterns – as well as in more traditional rooms. I look forward to seeing how designers and homeowners will take this collection and put their own spin on it.”
The Sylvan Collection was created for homeowners who love lighting that is grand in scope but not clunky and oversized. Sylvan is the perfect combination of traditional and contemporary. The sleek lines and angular detail of the outer frame is softened by the texture of the shades and the curved lines of the arms. This collection features graceful, sloping, polished nickel arms and white linen shades. Sylvan is offered in three fixtures; two chandeliers and a wall sconce.
“For the projects I work on, often times one half of the couple leans towards a more traditional style and the other likes a little more contemporary look, so it’s important for me to offer a design that strikes that delicate balance,” Langdon said. I take all the information I get from working with real people in real homes across the country and infuse that feedback into the products I design. The Sylvan Collection strikes that balance featuring a traditional style with a modern twist.”
The Libby Langdon Collection for Crystorama will debut at the Dallas International Lighting Market, June 18-21. The Crystorama showroom is located in the Dallas Market Center, 2100 Stemmons Freeway, Suite 3503, Dallas, Texas.
“Each lighting fixture I design comes from many hours of one-on-one time listening to my clients and hearing about the designs they find most livable and approachable,” Langdon said. “I’m excited to be able to incorporate that insight and information into my lighting collections for Crystorama.”
For more than 50 years, Crystorama has been a leader in the lighting industry, recognized for distinctive lighting creations that are exceptional in quality, design and craftsmanship. Drawing upon its depth of knowledge and expertise and inspired by fashion and art, Crystorama continues to innovate with modern shapes, materials and colors.
