2017: Our Most Promising Year Yet

Happy New Year!

Your feedback and positive energy made our first quarter in our new home at 312 West 4th more than we could have hoped.  We hosted private events for a handful of non-profit organizations, holiday parties for a couple of pretty well-healed women’s clubs, a standing room only Concert Nova coffee fueled concert and the works of modern artist Mary Barr Rhodes.  If that weren’t enough, Switch became holiday card central for some.  Fred and Lydia captured our livable modern vibe in these dynamic images by Stereoscope Photography:

 

And now this…a feature in Venue Magazine!  With 10,000 subscribers reading about our new destination, we expect to make a boatload of new friends…and customers.

 

We’d love to host your event.  Call us at (513) 421-1901 or email Bertie.  We’ll certainly make it memorable.

Venue Mag Features Switch Lighting & Designs’ New Downtown Destination

As seen in the January 2017 Issue of Venue Magazine.

For a private showroom appointment or an in-home consultation, please email Drew and Bertie.  You’re also welcome to call us at 513.421.1901.

From Winter with Love…

It’s colder in Cincinnati today than in Juneau, Alaska.  This deep chill has sent my mind drifting to last years’ vacation in Quito, Ecuador

drew-in-the-andes

and more recently to Solidaridad just outside Playa del Carmen: warm, vibrant…and surprisingly modern.

Mexico and South America are replete with modern art, inventive architecture and minimalistic hotels, inns and resorts.  Thayer Coggin, featured at Switch Lighting & Design on Fourth, our new downtown Cincinnati lighting and furniture showroom, would be equally at home in these sun-drenched modern locales as in a cozy cabin,  a cloud capped high rise apartment or a toasty suburban Center-Hall colonial.

 

For an appointment…and a cup of our “special” hot chocolate,  email Drew or Bertie today. You’re also welcome to drop in anytime between 10-6 Monday – Saturday.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6 Great Holiday Gifts for Her and Him

Holiday season 2016 is underway so we thought we’d share our favorite picks for the special someone(s) in your life.  Because a gift is an expression of your personal style,  look for items that reflect your personality and taste, but suit the recipient.  Gift giving should never send you to the poorhouse or break the bank.  Send a heartfelt note or a baked good before gifting beyond your means.  That said, here’s what we love!  All items are currently available for purchase at Switch and will ship in time for Christmas and Hanukkah if order by December 10. Many more options to help you celebrate the season available in store.  Visit our new location in downtown Cincinnati at 312 W. 4th.  Hours: 10-6, M-S.  Appointments welcome: 513.421.1901.
