FAIRFIELD, Iowa--AF Lighting will celebrate its new licensed line with celebrity designer Angelo Surmelis, creator of the brand angelo:HOME, at a party during the Las Vegas Market next week. The event will take place on Monday, Jan. 28, at 4:30 p.m. in showroom A-406.

Surmelis will be in attendance, as will his new line with AF Lighting. As Surmelis is known for his color, the new collection includes eight hues, such as orange, yellow, blue and purple, and will initially launch with about 45-50 SKUs, including portable mini chandeliers and table and floor lamps.

Surmelis has hosted more than 10 of his own series and specials on such networks as TLC, Lifetime, Style and HGTV, on which he has shown viewers that redesigning one's space can be life changing, and not a lot of money is needed to do so. "I am thrilled to be working with Paul [Spano] and Karen [Fallon] and their amazing team at AF Lighting," Surmelis said. "They have a well-oiled machine that is bursting with creativity while also being able to keep an eye on innovation and cost... something that inspires me and will hopefully inspire our customers in our quest to help them re-imagine their own space."

"To add a designer like Angelo Surmelis to the AF Lighting line is truly amazing," Spano said. "His unique style brings quality, value and ease to any user. We are thrilled to be able to continue with his message - offering great looks at an amazingly affordable price."
