“Light is the magical ingredient that makes or breaks a space; it’s one of the most important elements in all of my interiors,” interior designer Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz once said. If you’re looking to improve the appearance and atmosphere of your home, introducing new lighting is a wonderful way to do so. However, not all light fixtures are created equal – and neither are all lighting manufacturers. One of our favorite makers of fine lighting? Robert Abbey.
Here’s a closer look at this high-quality brand, along with tips for choosing the right fixtures for your home and an overview of truly extraordinary interior lighting ideas from Robert Abbey Lighting.
About Robert Abbey Lighting for Your Home
Robert Abbey has been designing and manufacturing exceptional lighting products for more than 70 years. Known for its extraordinary quality, impeccable standards, and timeless style, the company has managed to maintain its place at the forefront of design and innovation even as the industry has changed and grown over the past seven decades.
The majority of Robert Abbey's products are made in the U.S. on the company’s 22-acre campus nestled in North Carolina’s charming foothills. It is hardly surprising that so much inspiration is found here amidst the region’s picturesque beauty. Like Fashion Light Center, Robert Abbey is also a family-focused business. In fact, on any given day, you might find as many as four generations of Abbey family members working alongside each other.
From glittering ceiling chandeliers suitable for the foyer or dining room to wall sconces for the hallway, Robert Abbey light fixtures are a timeless addition to any interior decorating scheme.
How to Choose the Right Robert Abbey Fine Lighting for You
The best lighting for your home is directly influenced by several factors, including your home’s lighting needs, its design style, and your own tastes and preferences. Keep in mind that the best light schemes include a mix of three types of lighting: ambient (general) lighting, task lighting, and accent lighting.
If you’re starting a home design project from scratch, you’ll likely need all of these types of fixtures. However, if you’re simply looking to enhance or upgrade the quality of lighting in your home, you may need to introduce just one or two new pieces from Robert Abbey or another high-end lighting designer. For example, if your goal is to illuminate dark corners of your living room, decorative floor lamps may be the best choice. Meanwhile, if you’re looking to highlight a room’s architectural features, Robert Abbey sconces provide both form and function.
In addition to considering the type of lighting, the style of fixtures you select is also important. If your taste leans towards contemporary or modern interior design, you’ll have different lighting requirements than if you favor coastal or traditional decorating styles. The best way to ensure a harmonious result is to stick with a specific theme. This could mean staying within the parameters of a certain design style or choosing light fixtures with attributes that echo other design elements found in your home, such as colors, materials, and finishes.
Lastly, cost and efficiency are key considerations when choosing lighting. Unfortunately, many homeowners make the mistake of underestimating the value of truly elegant and efficient lighting. One perspective that can help you steer clear of this particular pitfall is thinking of light fixtures as an investment in both the appearance of your home and the quality of life of its inhabitants.
