It takes more than just one electrician to achieve this effect. The matter of high-end residential lighting needs something akin to an all hands on deck approach but with a lot more finesse than the customary residential property owner would have bargained for. It takes a collaboration made up of interior designers and architects, as well as the lighting electricians, to achieve the profoundest of aesthetic effects. Within these collaborations are the use of superior craftsmanship and some of the finest materials to hand.
The interior and exterior fixtures and fittings designed, manufactured and installed, and then finally switched on, must also achieve its functional objectives.
Design inspirations are taken from different architectural periods. There are replications being made of fixtures and fittings dating as far back as the seventeenth century. Logically speaking, it would only be around the nineteenth century that electricity finally made its presence felt. But perhaps it is the twentieth century that has been most active in terms of areas of familiarity for most suburban and upmarket property owners today. While old fashioned forging techniques are being used to make up today’s fabrications, there is still reliance on 21st century technologies.
Without lighting there can be no life, not so?
An appropriate selection of material fixtures is juxtaposed with correct scaling and illumination techniques. Artisans visit clients’ properties, presenting them with their best works and a proposal of sample fixtures that they could use. And in the spirit of high-end technological availability, clients who cannot yet accommodate their future artisans, can engage with them brightly enough, making use of online video or teleconferencing.
One more thing needs to be said about today’s high class residential lighting. Surely by now, it is being utilized inventively and sustainably.
