Will it be Bronze, Silver or Gold????

For the past few weeks, with the onset of the 2014 Winter Olympics,  much thought and discussion has been given to three colors......  Bronze, Silver or Gold...... 

Theses same three metals have been of great discussion for quite a while with regards to lighting selections as well.
Let's take a moment and look at each finish before we decide where on the podium we will stand:


A warm, rich color with many variations.  Some bronze finishes are dark, with an "Oil Rubbed" quality that has hints of copper - while others have a warm sheen which can reflect a myriad of rich color tones..... There are dozens and dozens of varieties in the bronze finish, but all of them work well within a rich, warm color palette.



A neutral finish that can work well with a traditional, transitional or contemporary design.  The variances in the silver category include Pewter, Brushed Nickel, Chrome and Polished Nickel as well as a few "faux finishes" with a silver base.



This is not your Mother's brassy gold - this is the new era of Gold.  It is a demure, elegant tone that can be done in either a matte or brushed finish.  Although it can also have a sheened finish - it is rich and luxurious, and is often considered a faux with high and low tones.



All three finishes are "precious metals" and beautiful designs can be achieved with each.....

The Golden Rule - One of the things we love.....

One of the best parts of being a small, family owned and operated business is that we don't have a corporate structure that inhibits who and what we are......

We are Blessed to be able to run our business the way we think it should be run.  We are able to treat our customers the way we want to be treated.  The "Golden Rule" is a real thing in our world.

We are Blessed with each and every person who walks through the Lighting Etc. doors - whether they are looking for one light bulb or an entire house full of fixtures - we are Blessed each time the door opens.  This is something that Granny and Paw-Paw instilled in us, and it is something that we will always focus on.
