Gourd lamps have such a classic shape that they can easily fit into any decor scheme, and they look amazing in any color.
Entrance Lighting - Many entrances have some natural light, so the goal for this space is to ensure adequate lighting for the evening and those times when the clouds roll in.

Task Lighting - Task lighting isn't just for kitchens — focused lights are paramount wherever any task is performed. This laundry and crafts room exemplifies this with task lighting in pendants at the island, undercabinet lighting for the countertops and a good amount of natural light from the window.
