October 18, 2013,
Flambeau Lighting, designers and manufacturers of upscale lighting, accessories and accent furniture in its signature New Orleans style, is introducing nearly 50 new designs at this week's market. The company is also releasing its Volume 8 catalog for 2014 in its showroom here, located at 200 N. Hamilton, Suite 201.
"We're excited to unveil a new catalog at this market that is inclusive of our all our new designs only making their debut now," said company President Joe McKearn. "We credit our team overseas for their quick work on our new photo samples and the graphics team at Eric Bauer Marketing for their amazing design work and energy to work long hours to get this to press in time to provide our customers with a truly up-to-date catalog."
The new Volume 8 catalog is 116 pages and features two-page spreads with New Orleans scenes as intro pages for its chandeliers, pendants, sconces, portable lamps and accent furniture and accessories sections. It includes all current and new merchandise from designers including Paul Grüer, Elaine Gleason and Benjamin Burts.
Flambeau is expanding its line of distinctive floor and table lamps designed by Elaine Gleason. The Crossed Vine floor lamp debuts in either gold or silver leaf. The complementing Laurel table lamp, which stands 40 inches tall, is also available in either gold or silver leaf finish and is topped with a black drum shade detailed with gold or silver soutache trim.
Paul Grüer adds new table and floor lamps, chandeliers and a new category that combines pendants and chandeliers, which the company calls "Pendaliers." The Kristal Pendalier showcases growing branches from a drum shade (in white or oatmeal) detailed with crystal accents.
Several new accessories by Baton Rouge sculptor Benjamin Burts also make their debut this week.
The company is participating in the ART Card discount program and is also a venue for retailers and designers who would like to join ART.
"We've been honored for the second year in a row with a nomination for the ARTS Award in the Portable Lamp category and this year we're delighted that Paul Grüer is also nominated for Product Designer of the Year," McKearn said. "We support their programs and encourage more to join."
