The Dallas Market was inspiring as always.
Since we are planning major exciting changes at our Form + Function retail location in Santa Fe, NM, we were primarily there to get ideas for our brand new showroom – and it was well worth the trip for that reason alone!
As always Forecast had a great display in their front window: A huge birds nest of branches and twisted copper wire on a bed of moss with a backdrop of a gigantic floating feather signaling their new focus on “Organic Modern” design. Pendants and wall sconces with diffusers of cork, interesting hand made papers and other organic materials gave off their soft glow among the warm colorful glass shades.The interest in the newest developments within “Green Lighting” was apparent everywhere we went: LEDs, Compact Fluorescents in all shapes and forms.
We saw one exciting new product that we are planning on using in our new showroom: LED tape!! A thin tape with an adhesive back embedded with tiny LEDS. Can be cut with scissors every inch and used almost anywhere for indirect light effects: Coves, undercounter lighting, bordering stairs etc.
