A recent weekend trip to Montreal provides an inspiring look at lighting design. Interior and exterior lighting can transform a space or structure like nothing else.

Who are the millennials? We hear the term used often, but what does it really mean? Originally named to designate those who would be graduating high school in 2000, the term now describes people born roughly between 1980 and 2000, which makes millennials today anywhere from 17 to 37 years old. This a large swath… Continue Reading
