Hinkley, a leading designer and distributor of decorative lighting and ceiling fans, kicked off its centennial year with the launch of more than 200 new lighting designs at this year’s Lightovation show in Dallas.
The unveiling of Hinkley’s new and exciting designs celebrates 100 years of style and dedication to thoughtful construction inspired by the best and latest trends, impeccable attention to detail and superior quality, according to the company.
“This new era represents what has motivated Hinkley throughout every decade of the past 100 years: a passion for the home, thoughtful design, and a commitment to growth,” says Jess Wiedemer, President. “What’s always been most important to us is listening to our customers and delivering Hinkley style and quality in new and thrilling ways.”
At the show, Hinkley debuted a robust lineup from its Interior, Bath and Outdoor lighting categories. “We took some design chances, pushed the boundaries and really focused on unique statement crystal designs for this release,” said Lauren Lovett, Director of Decorative Product.
Several standout trends from this year’s release include:
Crystal Crush: a modern take on gleaming, heavy-cut designs
Statement Sconces: dramatic styles for every space
Integrated LED: sophisticated Bath designs in bold finishes and innovative glass shades
Modern Organic Glam: daring silhouettes from designer Lisa McDennon
Big on Style: over scaled lanterns with a dramatic flair
