Go for the Gold!

Inspired by the Olympics, we asked our Designers to share some of their favorites in gold, silver and bronze.

Designers Janet Perry and Jenny Ladutko love these fabulous light fixtures that they specified for the Dataw Island clubhouse.

This sconce has a mercury glass look but is unique with its combination of gold as well as silver.

This light fixture has stunning details, and the gold candlesticks differentiate the piece from other chandeliers.

Janet and Jenny weren’t the only Designers loving golden light fixtures.  Deb Van Plew loves these Etch Shade pendant light fixtures from Tom Dixon.

These look great alone or hung in groups!

Deb also loved this bronze hued hand-rubbed table.

Designer, Doris Gilch, shared this amazing amber Murano glass light fixture that she, Joni and Adrienne just installed at our project, Hotel Castello di Casole in Tuscany, Italy!  The statement fixture is the perfect focal point and sets the ambiance for the wine room in the Ristorante Tosca.

Designer Hannah Fulton shared her current favorite faucet from Kohler’s Purist Collection.

Hannah loves the high spout and sleek design!

Jennifer Farese shared a fun fact. There was actually no bronze, silver or gold at the ancient Greek Olympic Games.  Winners were crowned with the beautiful, yet rather simple prize of an olive branch wreath, or kotinos. She loves how Michael Aram translated this symbol of victory into his signature Olive Branch Collection.

Available in our Retail Store, the Olive Branch Collection is created using castings of oxidized solid bronze. The pieces are simple and beautiful.

Lisa Whitley was also loving golden hued lighting.  She selected this antique brass lamp as one of her current favorites.

Lisa loves the brushed finish as it provides a softer look than a polished finish would.

Adrienne Warner shared this picture of a favorite golden landmark in Paris. The Renommée des Sciences (Fame of the Sciences) is on the right bank of the Alexander III Bridge.

What are your favorite gold, silver, and bronze items?

    As an artist and custom framer, my favorite golds are 22k gold hand finished frames some of which will satisfy your lust for luxury in a way nothing else can. Sometimes a little gold in a mixed media can make a statement too. Think Klimt.
