Pizza Rock’s 3-Ring Chandelier Lights Up Las Vegas

What better place to make a statement with lights than Las Vegas? Pizza Rock’s new custom Form & Reform three-ring chandelier does just that, with a bold conical shape that fills their dining room with a whopping 112.5 watts of light. Each of the candelabra sockets can be pointed up, out, down, or anywhere in between, giving the restaurant an opportunity to easily change the fixture’s appearance and keep things fresh.

I visited Pizza Rock to get a feel for the space, and found the eclectic, industrial design called for a bold, bright, statement fixture that won’t clash with the existing decor. The industrial lines of forged steel rings heavily dotted with candelabra sockets fit the bill perfectly, with Form & Reform’s signature fire-scale finish adding just the right amount of texture to complement the brick walls.

Cairdean Estate Winery’s Great Taste Extends to Lighting

Napa Valley’s renowned Cairdean Estate proved a wonderful space for Form & Reform lights, blending rustic with elegant, industrial with refined. Working with the client, we opted to play up those contrasts, complementing large, bold ring lights with dozens of candelabra bulbs hanging from fabric-wrapped cords. The resulting lights feel almost like enlarged wine barrel hoops, with the many lights shining like dewdrops in the morning sun.

The two largest forged steel ring chandeliers, each an impressive 9′ diameter, will be hung in Cairdean Estate’s The Farmer & The Fox, a Michelin Bib Gourmand-winning gastropub. Two 48″ diameter ring chandeliers will be installed in their tasting room. If your travels take you to the St. Helena area, I recommend a visit to their expansive grounds that include a tasting room, bakery and deli, restaurant, and event space.

Glistening Web Light Catches Your Eye

The Web Light chandelier may not catch prey, but it certainly catches the eye of anyone who encounters it. Both elegant and playful, the Web Light features gently hand-forged tapered steel spanning each radial rod, mold-blown glass adorning the vertical hang rod, fire-scale finish texture, and gracefully varied lines.

The durable yet visually delicate Web Light complements a variety of interior styles including Art Deco, French, Modern Glamour, Contemporary, and Eclectic.

As with all Form & Reform lights, a change of bulbs will transform the light’s feel. This 45″ diameter fixture’s twelve candelabra-sized sockets work perfectly with either chromed or candle bulbs. Chromed bulbs cast light back toward the central glass spire, creating a glamorous sparkle, while candle bulbs visually elongate the radial lines.

Playful Custom Light Fixture is Made for Modification

Stance Modifiable Fixture

Stance Socks was looking for a custom light fixture that could be playfully modified on a whim. I think this light fits the bill, with 7 medium-socket bulbs hanging from long, fabric-covered cords. The cords can hang straight and long, or be wrapped, knotted, and arranged in countless configurations.

The durable cords are suspended from a bar of square tube steel. The 3-point ceiling attachment design creates a streamlined, elegant, and stable area for cord customization while still providing easy installation.

Please note: these photos show the fixture temporarily rigged in the Form & Reform shop. The final installation will be flush-mounted to the ceiling at the flat disks.

Oregon Electric Station: Custom Chandeliers Create a Timeless yet Modern Space

Oregon Electric Station’s Custom Chandeliers

When the new owners of the Oregon Electric Station Restaurant contacted me, I looked at the space and knew custom lights could really make this historic hall shine. The design would need to be modern, yet timeless, and the fixtures carefully scaled for the space.

To ensure these modern light fixtures would compliment the grand, slightly industrial, turn of the century space, I worked with the clients on the design. They sent me some sketches, and we built upon a few favorite design elements from my previous custom chandeliers. The resulting three-tier chandelier has a conical shape that punctuates the long station hall.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

After the design had been finalized, we hand-forged and fabricated six of these three-tier chandeliers in the Form & Reform shop. The top tier is 48″ diameter, the middle is 30″, and the bottom is 16″. Each light has 36 total medium-socket lights, hanging from cloth-covered wire. I also created five custom, single-ring chandeliers for the restaurant.

The Oregon Electric Station Restaurant in Eugene reopens in summer 2014. As with all of my custom work, I can’t wait to see them installed in the space!

Announcing Sarriugarte’s new RH lines:
San Sebastian & Circa 1920 Spanish Torch

I’m pleased to announce the launch of two new Restoration Hardware lines of Sarriugarte designed lights: the San Sebastian and Circa 1920 Spanish Torch lines.

RH2014-ad_JonS-SMALL

Look for me in your April/May magazines (Elle Decor, 7×7, C, etc.) holding my RH San Sebastian chandelier.

Demand for my first line with RH, Camino, was high, so they asked me to design two more lines of lights, the San Sebastian Line and the Circa 1920 Spanish Line. I’m pleased to now be able to offer a broader variety of my forged steel fixtures.

Fans of Form & Reform style can order my RH lights easily online. They are generally in stock and ready to ship, with a price point lower than my custom fixtures. Visit the RH catalogue page for each line by clicking the images below.

Willow Light: A Wedding Chandelier

For a wedding, then forever

While every custom light project is important, the Willow Light was designed for a very special occasion. At their wedding, the clients’ florist will weave fresh vines and flowers through the fixture, as well as gather and tie the hanging bulbs. It’s an honor to know that with all the elements of planning a wedding, this couple chose to commission a Form & Reform light for their special day.

After this light takes the stage as the centerpiece of the loving couple’s ceremony, it can go in their home as a permanent, enduring reminder of that momentous day.
