Transform Your Space with Purposeful Lighting & Shading

Lighting Design


Designing a beautiful home is about more than choosing the right color palettes and furniture—lighting plays a vital role as well. Lighting should highlight architectural features, bring attention to high-end furnishings and make colors stand out. That same lighting also serves to enhance your everyday life, boosting your mood and helping you accomplish important tasks. Hire a professional to optimize your lighting design and control for a luxurious lifestyle and residence.

Why hire a lighting designer?

Employing an independent lighting designer may seem like an odd choice for homeowners that have relied on electrical engineers and interior designers to take care of their lighting needs in the past. But when you make lighting a secondary job for others, it becomes an afterthought in your home. A lighting designer masters technical, scientific and stylistic fields to deliver bespoke solutions for their clients.

  • Experts on the latest cutting-edge lighting technology through ongoing training
  • Refined techniques transform invisible light into dynamic architectural design
  • Special training on physics, optics, electricity, codes and environmental impact
  • Equipment costs reduced through competitive bids and manufacturer partnerships
  • Initial cost analysis outlines lighting techniques that will reduce equipment and labor costs
  • Detail-minded staff craft innovative designs attuned to your home and lifestyle needs

    Keep to your workday schedule with a “Daytime” lighting scene that automatically activates at 9 am every day. As you head into your home office, natural ambient lights and desk lights greet you for optimal focus and concentration.

Processor

The processor is the heart of your lighting control system, facilitating communication between your control devices and fixtures. Having a high-end processor ensures clear, uninterrupted communication without any lag. Efficient communication means as soon as you input a command—no matter the source—you get an immediate and accurate response. During the initial design stage, our lighting experts determine which model best fits your needs based on its bandwidth and processing power.

Dimming Panels

What makes a professional lighting control system stand out is its centralized control using dimmer panels. All dimming and control capabilities are routed through these remote panels that are installed out of sight in an equipment room or utility closet. Dimmer panels reduce wall clutter in individual rooms, cut down on the wiring infrastructure, allow for more complex programming capabilities and minimize the need for power boosters while also controlling fans and motors.

Smart Dimmers/Switches

Reduce your wall acne even further with smart dimmers and switches that incorporate complex commands and scenes. These luxury keypads replace banks of switches and dimmers to streamline your décor. Improve convenience with keypads that offer instant access to scenes, let you manage lights throughout the house and offer combined dimmer and switch control in one housing.
