I’m starting to gather lighting inspiration. There are so many lights in our new house, and while everything if functioning well, not every fixture suits our style or this home. That said, I am finding that choosing light fixtures is an overwhelming design task. On top of this, I’m impatient, so I have to remind myself that it’ll take some time to get all the fixtures set.
For now, here are some fixtures that are getting my attention.
Okay, okay, so today’s title doesn’t really leave you guessing about my design-star-struck moment, does it? Yes, it’s true, I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Aerin Lauder at the Visual Comfort & Co. showroom at High Point Market just a couple of weeks ago.
Aerin & me
It was a complete treat to meet Aerin and to take photos of her with her gorgeous lighting designs serving as the backdrop.
Her collection of varied pieces is really quite stunning. I love the sleekness of the Clemente line, the sparkle in the Bonnington and Lynn pieces, and the texture on the Hampton lights. I feel like there is something for everyone in this collection (and I’m not just saying that because I met Aerin and her PR team!).

The collection is full of so many pretty pieces, isn’t it? You can click Aerin Lauder lighting collection to see all the pieces currently available.
I’m back today with another update from my first High Point Market experience. I already shared my overall impression of HPMKT and my prediction of trends, but today I’m sharing a close-up look at one company in particular that really came to impress!
As soon as I stepped into the Visual Comfort & Co. showroom, I was pretty much speechless. The staff was extremely welcoming and informative, and I instantly learned so much about Visual Comfort’s place in the lighting industry and its many designer partnerships. Based in Houston, Texas, Visual Comfort manufactures lighting for the likes of Thomas O’Brien, Kelly Wearstler, Aerin Lauder, Alexa Hampton, and Suzanne Kasler (impressive list, right? See the full list of designers here.).

Gorgeous, right? Every piece was even more beautiful in person if you can believe it. The showroom sparkled!
And…for your entertainment…here’s how I spent much of my time at Visual Comfort:
Action shot! Thanks, Corie, for snapping this one.
Come back tomorrow as I’ll be sharing my design-star-struck moment.
