This week, we received a request to create a custom hallway light for an assisted living facility in Virginia. They had some very specific requirements for this fixture, which included seeded glass, two candelabra lamps, a closed bottom and ADA compliant. In addition to the single sconce version, they needed a double version of this same light, which is not available on the market as a standard fixture.
|Soaring Eagle Sconce|
Recently, we worked on a custom light proposal for a hotel in the forests of Oregon. They requested an Eagle soaring on one of our light fixtures. Since we have a talented and artistic staff, we were able to create a drawing and convert it into a Eagle light, base on our popular Cascade Large sconce. This is just one example of how a Made in USA lighting company can quickly design and make a unique lighting fixture.
We are going to include the Eagle on all of our Cascade series of sconces pendants and rustic bath lights. If you are interested in one for yourself, here is the link: Cascade Large Wall Sconce with Eagle
|The Starfish Vanity Light (custom backplate) created by Avalanche Ranch Lighting for the Inn at Cape Kiwanda
A few years back, the owners of the Inn at Cape Kiwanda renovated all the bathrooms in the inn–where every room has a view!–to include the Avalanche Ranch Lighting Starfish Vanity Light. The combination of the cobalt blue vanity and the rust patina of the light is fantastic. Also scattered throughout this 35 room inn in the delightful seaside down of Pacific City OR are Starfish Reflection Sconces, shown here next to the grand fireplace in the lobby–which looks out onto Haystack Rock. Avalanche Ranch Lighting prides itself on the ability to customize almost any light with a specific design motif–in this case the starfish.
Consistently rated at one of the best beaches to vacation with your dog(s), we found the big dune and the Pelican Inn and the lovely Inn at Cape Kiwanda reason enough to want to return to this gem sans pets. Just waiting for the perpetual rains to end…
I just got off the phone with Walter, who wanted to install one of our Smoky Mountain Ceiling Light on a log beam in his log home. He had drilled out a cavity and put a shallow 4 inch junction box/pan and he wanted the hanging canopy to be curved to follow the contour of the log. This kind of request is not unusual for us, and I was able to design a 6 inch square plate that will have a hanging hook in the middle and curved to fit around the log.
Today we received a request for a extended length for our Wasatch Bath light for a 60 inch length, with 6 lights. This request for a custom rustic light fixture is an excellent example of what we can do here at the Ranch. Where else would you turn for such a fixture? Certainly not Lowe’s or Home Depot. We will be able to make this fixture at an affordable price, fully UL approved, within a 3 week lead time.
Today I received a custom request on our rustic lights called the Benton Sconce, to make it an exterior light. The current design only is suitable for interior and damp locations (outside but protected from the rain). This is something we could do, but most likely, it would be made shorter. Also, the bulbs would have to point down. This wall sconce light is interesting because of the back – which is curved so that it fits over a vertical log. Some people have also asked that this be made to go on a horizontal log. Certainly it can be installed in a horizontal way, but I think it would be better to make a curved back canopy so any light could be installed on a log cabin wall horizontally.
Any thoughts on this?
