DIAMOND LUXENNEA – New Custom Installation for Residential Home
In June of this year, our client, Angelo Minichiello. contacted us from New Market, Ontario. Angelo loved our Diamond Luxennea chandelier. He had the perfect spot in mind for this custom light – A grand splash was to be made in his front entrance. Angelo wanted a few subtle changes made in the design. The top, seven foot diameter ring was to have the lights point up and out, instead of down. Color temperature was also key, so a 6500K color temperature was selected for the LEDs that would be used in the light.
Karice went to work on the shop drawings for our client. One hurdle to overcome was the sloped ceiling where the light would be mounted. Using trigonometry, Angelo was able to provide the team at Karice with the exact angle of the ceiling. Using this custom angle, a custom two-piece, sloped canopy was designed and made for the light.
With the new light to be installed, it was important to our client that the existing lights in the house be modified, so that there would be continuity in the newly updated space. Four existing pendants were dismantled, and all parts were shipped to Karice for re-finishing. New hexagonal ceiling canopies were also crafted by Karice to complete the tie in. The parts were sandblasted, and an identical oil rubbed bronze finish was applied to the new light, new ceiling canopies and existing lighting parts.
Once the custom light was completed, we went to work carefully packaging everything for it’s long journey across the country. A custom wooden crate was made to package the finished product. A week later, the light arrived safely at it’s new home. Once installed, the final results could not be more pleasing. The Diamond Luxennea, is perfect in it’s new home. The pictures show the stunning results.
