"I like Bingo because it doesn't fit the mold of a traditional lighting fixture. It can be mounted on a ceiling or a wall (horizontally or vertically) and was designed to function as a piece of art as much as a source of light. The frame features antique mirrored glass pieces as accents, but users can customize the fixture by covering them with fabric, wallpaper, pictures, etc. As a designer, I like to see how people choose to make the products I design their own."Equinox pendant series was inspired by antique armillary spheres. The customer can position the rotating rings around the center cluster of light, allowing for a bit of customization. I have seen these fixtures placed in all types of interiors from modern to rustic traditional, so I am happy to see that the design has widespread appeal and is not defined by a single category."
"Finally, Haven is a design that has a modern feel, but was definitely influenced heavily by classic Craftsman furniture. Like Equinox, this group works across a range of styles, and I like to see our customers use it in a wide variety of interior decors."To view the full interview with Progress Lighting designer James Thomas, visit the Bungalow Company blog.
