The latest designs from Kichler include two new collections along with an addition to the popular Mihaela Family. The two new collections* include: Shazam™ – The Shazam Collection is as magical as its name. Color, texture and pattern come together with an Olde Bronze® finish to create a strong angular pattern of Art Glass and sheer, shaved stone. The elongated, rectangular shades are open at both the top and bottom, and are created from delicate, bowed panels of stone and glass in predominantly neutral hues with occasional accents of bold red and gold. A mini pendant, four-light chandelier, semi flush and wall sconce are available within this family. Pluto™ – Kichler’s Pluto Family features both drum and rectangular-shaped shades of Art Glass and cut stone in earthy, neutral tones. A primitive, tri-colored, modified stripe pattern repeats on the panels. Curving arms finished in popular Brushed Nickel mimic the curved stripe and flow into the eye-catching pattern. This collection includes a mini pendant, semi flush that converts into a pendant, four-light chandelier, wall sconce and oval pendant. Kichler has also expanded its Mihaela Collection with the addition of an oval pendant*: Mihaela™ Oval Pendant – Striking in both its simplicity and detail, the Mihaela Oval Pendant is practical and innovative as well. Shaped to spread light across an elongated table, this elliptical pendant offers a fresh take on traditional Tiffany style. Its eye-catching shade features warm and cool colors delivered by Art Glass and sliced stone cut in simple geometric shapes and accented by clean lines in Shadow Bronze™– finished metal. The combination of nature-inspired colors and simple, modern style creates a decidedly casual yet contemporary feel. To see a sample of the Mihaela Art Glass firsthand, the family’s two-light wall sconce will be on display in the Kichler booth (#231) at the 2012 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) , April 24 – 26 in Chicago. The Art Glass shades of the Shazam, Pluto and Mihaela Collections are composed of natural materials, and therefore colors, patterns and textures will vary from piece to piece. *Not in-booth at 2012 KBIS.
