Illuminating Design Award Winners

Austin Interior Designers win Illuminating Design Awards

Legend Lighting hosted our first annual Illuminating Design Awards on Thursday, May 30, 2014. Austin interior designers submitted favorite photos of  projects featuring lighting in five different categories. Awards for Best Interior Lighting, Best Exterior Lighting, Best Architectural Lighting, Most Unusual Application, Best Use of Crystal, Partner’s Award and Brightest Luminary were presented.

We combined the award presentation with a Red Carpet Crystal Event, and BJ Ferber, our representative with Elegant Lighting, gave a short talk about specifying crystal. The Legend Lighting staff had a wonderful time putting this event together and we look forward to making it even bigger and better next year.

CG&S Design-Build won the award for Best Exterior Lighting for the Central Austin project shown below. The goal was to extend living and dining outdoors for all four seasons for their client. Sconces, copper gutter cove lighting and LED twinkle lights illuminate the space.

Chelsea+Remy Design won Best Interior Lighting for this stunning master bedroom. The vaulted ceiling is lit with rope lighting hidden behind the crown molding. Pendant lighting and overhead spot lights provide the reading light without the use of table lamps.

CG&S Design-Build won a second award for Best Architectural Lighting. This creekside renovation was a complete remodel resulting in the regional, rustic charm of the exterior and a sophisticated, contemporary elegance on the interior.

Robin Bond Interiors won the award for Most Unusual Application for their remodel of a 1996 Stardust Houseboat. Short pendants were chosen to reduce the amount of motion from the waves and to account for the shorter ceilings. Cabinet lighting in the wet bar, rope lighting in the ceiling alcoves and puck lights in the entertainment center were used. A ceiling fan for overhead lighting and table lamps were adhered with velcro to keep them from sliding when the boat was rocked by  waves.

Michelle Thomas Design won the award for Best Use of Crystal for her Sweet Pea Nursery. Michelle wanted this nursery to be feminine, delicate and have one extra bit of extravagance. The pewter tones in the chandelier match perfectly with the restored antique furniture. All other furnishings are minimal and monochromatic, allowing the chandelier to be the “icing on the cake.”
