Switch’s Lighting of the Globe
The Globe Building that now houses People’s Liberty has been open for a week or two at this point. Switch is proud to have provided the lighting for this wonderful space. Today we want to highlight some of the main features we provided!
This space in the kitchen is meant for ‘family dinners’. It features a cluster of Graypants Scraplights. Scraplights are made up of recycled card board, and are created ins Seattle. They add a nice texture to this lovely space!
We have a few Scotch Club fixtures by Marset through out the space in various sitting or meeting areas. Marset is located in Barcelona, Spain, and Scotch Club is made out of ceramics.
Pleat Box, Scotch Club’s brother, is hanging in a cluster of various colors and sizes over the conference table. The repeating ceramic fixtures through out the space help to keep the whole building integrated.
If you haven’t stopped by to see the restored Globe Building yet, you really should!

Inspiration: Flush Mounts
Today we are going to share some inspiration for you all in the form of flush mounts. Flush mounts may not seem like the most exciting form of lighting. Often pendants and suspension pieces acquire most of the attention. Flush mounted fixtures can also offer a wonderful aesthetic while not going overboard or blocking your line of sight. Take a look at some of our favorites:

Inspiration: Using Bold Colors
Today we are sharing some inspiration with you all for incorporating bold colored fixtures into your homes and designs! One important thing to keep in mind when using bold colors is to make sure you’re not going overboard with them. Too many contrasting colors can be overwhelming, as well as too much of the same color. Generally bold colors work best when they are used more as a focal point or accent amongst muted colors such as white, grey, or tan. Take a look at a few designs where bold colored fixtures are used well:
Presenting Bend at Switch!

The Crane House
Crane House is located on the coast of Sonoma, CA. The craggy coastline features natural arches, long sandy beaches, secluded coves, open grasslands and forested hills. This is an ideal area for fishing, abalone diving, or just listening to the pounding of the surf and watching the sunset over the Pacific Ocean.
Our own Drew Dearwester was the head designer on this project, which was completed a few years back, but we’re still really proud of his accomplishments!
