This is Fred Ball for Zions Bank, speaking on business.
I’m not an expert in interior design, but I know what a dramatic impact good design can have on a room. Obviously, furnishings and color are essential elements. But the lighting in a room is equally important--as I learned on a recent trip to Lighting Design.
Jean Eyre, Lighting Design’s president and owner, met me at the company’s Draper location, which is one of two in Utah, the other being in Orem. Jean welcomed me into the 3,000-square-foot showroom where lighting fixtures from hundreds of brands complemented an eclectic mix of furniture in traditional-, contemporary- and vintage-style displays. Some displays beamed brightly with light, emitting a cheery feel while others gave off an elegant serenity.
After touring the showroom, I followed Jean into Lighting Design’s Lighting Lab. It looked like the kitchen and living room of a luxurious home. Touching a control pad, Jean turned on a series of recessed lights that spilled various patterns and shades across the furniture and floor and tiny spotlights that exposed decorative art pieces. With another touch, she added music and turned on an overhead security camera that showed an aerial view of the kitchen.
Jean said the lab has been a hit with clients in helping them make selections. It’s also been a great way to demonstrate Lighting Design’s most innovative product--home automation. Jean explained that with home automation, lighting has never been easier. But, she said, the system does much more than that. It can even draw a bath and warm towels. And best of all, it’s very affordable.
By the end of my visit, I had gained a better understanding of the convenience and impact of good lighting. But with so many possibilities, I wondered what would be best for me. Jean said her staff of accredited consultants and technicians can solve anyone’s lighting dilemma and ensure that they enjoy the finest in Lighting Design.
