Quoizel Lighting is Classic and Attractive
Jun 02, 2008 | by Wendy Weinert
Quoizel Lighting is mostly known for its durability and classic ways of using a light to illuminate a room. If you are looking for quivering halogen bulbs, plastic lamps or really dramatic styles you are not going to find them at Quoizel. The company instead specializes in designs that are very classic and that would fit well in almost any type of building or architectural style.
Quoizel provides many different varieties of lighting. They of course sell the usual bathroom lighting, celingl lighting, wall lanterns, and wall sconces, hinging lanterns, pendant lighting and bathroom lighting. They also sell free standing lamps that are prized for their antique “Tiffany” style look where metal or wrought iron is separated by panes of glass.
Whether it is a chandelier or a wall sconce, Quoizel is well known for being appointed with all kinds of crystals and special drops. Even the simplest of ceiling shells can be adorned with amber glass drops or a wrought iron casing that makes it look especially ornate.
In terms of style, the Quoizel array is an interesting mix of American, rustic and country with turn of the century French and English-Victoriana. The result is some truly beautiful hanging and free standing lamps. A few of the fixtures are less elaborate and have a bit of a Medieval feel, but for the most part they look perfect for retrofitting a house built anywhere from the late 1800s to the seventies with suitable fixtures.
The quality of the materials used in Quoizel Lighting is also exceptional and includes things like bronze, brushed nickel and wrought iron. The glass shells, shades and cups on these lamps and light fixtures are also done in gorgeous pearly shades with a natural ombre effect.
