New Wearstler wall sconce
LOS ANGELES-Celebrated interior designer Kelly Wearstler, in partnership with Visual Comfort & Co., will debut a lighting collection during High Point Market in October. Visual Comfort shows in the C&D Building, 2G.
Comprising eight collections, including chandeliers, pendants, flush mounts, wall sconces and table and floor lamps, the initial line uses such materials as ceramics, marble, alabaster, textured bronze, silver and gunmetal paired with cast glass and natural stones. The collections are: Zephyr, which is influenced by Wearstler's love of luxurious textures and iconic architectural detailing; Melange, inspired by her love of natural stone and luxe metals; Liaison, which features spirited grandeur and soulful architectural design in natural bronze and cast textured glass; Covet, which highlights raw natural stones mounted in a signature natural bronze prong setting; Precision, which features perforated metal in a rich natural bronze finish; Utopia, which calls upon Wearstler's love of nature and features topographic and organic forms inspired by California's coastal landscape; Strada, which draws inspiration from Wearstler's signature kaleidoscope design; and Cubist, influenced by her love of Alexander Calder's mobiles and how they react to the environment.
"This collection draws upon various periods of design with each piece using a different creative approach," said Wearstler. "I could easily envision mixing and matching the various pieces within one of my own residential projects. Some are loud statement pieces and others possess a quieter point-of-view. There is a hierarchy of voices. I tried to draw upon my experience creating jewelry, incorporating fine detailing and signature textures, I think this really makes all the difference. The designs are classic in form but they still feel modern and distinctive."
