Client Spotlight: Grant K. Gibson

Known for his classic, well-edited spaces, Grant K. Gibson believes "a home is the ultimate reflection of personality: interiors are about the people who inhabit them and each interior is unique." While Gibson draws much of his inspiration from history, he likes to take a fresh approach to create beautiful, livable spaces. The San Francisco-based designer generously shared what draws him to incorporate our lighting throughout his projects.

Kitchens: Hicks Pendant

CL: We noticed your admiration for the Hicks Pendant in a kitchen. What keeps you coming back to this beloved fixture?

GKG: I love the variety of sizes and finishes!  In a space filled with a lot of rectangles, I like incorporating a different shape to create sculptural contrast. This fixture is like a subtle piece of suspended jewelry- the chain detail is absolutely beautiful.

Bedrooms: Task Lighting

CL: You elevate the definition of bedside style. What draws you to incorporate task lighting into a bedroom?

GKG: I personally move around a lot during a night’s sleep - my pillows can be found in random places when I get up in the morning. Task lighting eliminates the risk of knocking over a lamp in the middle of the night. They are functional for reading, and they add diminsion to a typically blank wall!

Bathrooms: Graydon Double Bath Light

CL: We love seeing this light installed in different ways. What makes the Graydon Double Bath Light a go-to for you?

GKG: This fixture beautifully illuminates a space, layering light with two bulbs in two directions. Its versatile silhouette looks great installed both vertically and horizontally!

Powder Rooms: Bold Walls with Classic Sconces

CL: You can give a small space big impact. What do you look for in a sconce to seamlessly accent a bold wallcovering in powder rooms?

GKG: I love to have fun with wallpapers in powder rooms. Because of this, I then want the sconces to be simple. To elevate and accentuate the wallpaper, why not customize the shade in the same paper as the walls?
