Dallas2017LightOvation, the new name for the Dallas Market Center lighting show. We just got back and have so much to share with you. What is trending for this year? Glad you asked!

Innovation, LightOvation! With LED available in so many different configurations we aren’t locked into the “wagon wheel” shaped chandeliers that have been the staple for many years. Oh sure, there were still circle shapes, circles with a twist! Chandeliers that move so you can configure them yourself. Circles that twist, circles that stack, circles in gyroscope shapes. And it didn’t stop there. There were also squares, starbursts, wings, helix shapes, spirals and linear.

Mix it up! Mixed metals were everywhere. Many of the LED fixtures had chrome or polished nickel hardware; finishes that added some sparkle. Soft brushed gold, copper and brass are still trending. Some of the biggest hits were the mixed metals; black with gold, satin nickel with chrome, bronze with copper. You name it and you could find it.

Super-size it! Can we raise that ceiling? We saw many oversized pieces to make a statement with. Perfect for entry ways, stairs, use one or two large size fixtures over dining tables or kitchen islands. Anywhere that can accommodate a large scale fixture. Like we always say “better too large than too small”!

New arrivals should start rolling in around March. Be sure to come by and check them out!
