By using Art Glass in combination with translucent slices of real stone featuring natural variations in color and texture, Kichler produces fashion-forward collections that create inviting atmospheres in a variety of design styles. New Art Glass collections from Kichler include: Elias™ – This casual, transitional collection unites cream-colored Art Glass with honey-colored natural cut stone in designs perfect for warm, welcoming spaces. The colors, in combination with alternating horizontal and vertical rectangular-shaped pieces, uniquely balance light for a comfortable effect. This collection includes a chandelier, linear chandelier, wall sconce, mini pendant and a boxy-styled convertible fixture that can be used as a semi-flush or pendant. All fixtures are available in an Olde Bronze™ finish. Blythe™ – Versatile by nature, Kichler’s Blythe collection features a mosaic of Art Glass in layered neutral colors with a hint of metallic for an eye-catching gleam that makes each fixture a standout. The oval chandelier includes a white glass diffuser that softens light, making this transitional fixture even more versatile. The Blythe line has two convertible fixtures, a smaller 16” version and a larger 22” version, making it is easy to extend the use of this lighting family through multiple spaces. Both convertible fixtures can be used as a semi-flush or pendant. The collection also includes a mini pendant. All fixtures are available in an Olde Bronze™ finish. Caywood™ – Available in an Olde Bronze™ finish and made with Art Glass, the Caywood collection adds a pop of color to any arts and crafts-style setting. This five-piece family, with its popular shade-in-shade design, highlights clear tones and features light and dark neutral colors with a splash of blue in each fixture. Pair the mini pendant and hang over long, rectangular pieces, such as a kitchen table or island, to give the area an updated, fresh look. Also included in the collection are a foyer pendant, wall sconce, pendant and convertible piece that can be hung as a pendant or semi-flush. Louisa™ – This three-piece family features shade-in-shade design with a glass interior, a white fabric hardback shade exterior and a Tiffany-styled Art Glass bottom diffuser in neutral tones for an elegant, updated traditional look. This collection includes a mini pendant and two convertible pieces that can be used as a pendant or semi-flush. All fixtures are available in an Olde Bronze™ finish. In addition to the four new art glass collections, Kichler expands its Confetti collection with the addition of a three-light chandelier. Confetti Chandelier – Simple geometric shapes in blues, greens and a splash of orange, make Kichler’s Confetti three-light chandelier an eye-catching focal point amid today’s popular sun-kissed hues. A Brushed Nickel finish complements this chandelier’s simple yet stunning design. All Art Glass mini pendants are designed to fit Kichler’s new three-arm canopy.
