Jug Lights Become Art

Instagram is such a great way to discover projects that are original and unique. That is exactly what happened a few weeks ago when we came across a great photo of an installation with our handblown Jug Lamps in a Venice, California.

The pendants hang from a 3-story high ceiling, in a canal home, in the heart of Venice. The client is a creative who is open to bold design. He went out of town for a couple of weeks and while he was away, I had a team of contractors hang 12 pendants of different colors and sizes, at varying heights. “In the end, it became an artistic light installation and total showstopper for the home! Thank you Cisco for the awesome lights!!” says Principal, Rachel Chulew.

“I first heard about Cisco when I was just a design student in Los Angeles! Cisco was a clear choice for furnishings that had a casual elegance to them. The style shows an enduring, effortless chic. In design, it can be hard to strike the right balance between luxurious and casual, but Cisco was able to nail it down with the details – some industrial metals, rustic woods, global fabrics and fine lines.”
