Littman Brands Announces Contest Winner; Launches Next Contest
CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif.-The Littman Brands, the parent company of Corbett Lighting, Hudson Valley Lighting, Troy Lighting and CSL, has selected the winners of its first-ever lighting competition, "Let It Shine," which were featured in the company's inaugural Larger Than Light magazine.
Designers were asked for creative uses of any Littman Brand fixture in an installation. The winners were Sandra Ericksen of Charleston, S.C.-based Sandra Ericksen Design, who used Troy Lighting's Sausalito fixture for a master bedroom in a historic townhouse; Lauren McKay, ASID, who used Corbett Lighting's historically inspired Bryant Park pendant fixture over a marble-topped island in an old-world style kitchen; and M&K Lighting, in Stillwater, Okla., which chose Corbett Lighting's Vertigo pendant to enhance a casual entertaining and dining space.
Winners received a $500 credit toward a chandelier of their choice, and were featured in the January issue of Larger Than Light, a bi-yearly four-color print magazine that focuses on all aspects of
lighting and its practical uses in decorating.
The magazine was "an opportunity to expand on the ideas explored digitally on Facebook, and to give our customers, designers and dealers a true lighting resource that they can touch and feel," said
Steve Nadell, president of Littman's West Coast Group. "Launched in connection with our magazine, the "Let It Shine" contest was a way for us to show our fixtures in well-designed real life applications."
Based on the competition's response, the company has launched its second "Let It Shine" contest, with a deadline of May 15, 2012. Winners will again receive a $500 credit toward a Littman Brands
chandelier and have their projects featured in the Summer 2012 issue of Larger Than Light.
