August Giveaway – Craftmade
August Giveaway: CRAFTMADE Ceiling Fan
For over past 20 years the Marra Family has brought excellence in design and quality construction. Angersteins has worked with the family on several projects where quality and value matter most in the finished product. Daughter Desiree Donofrio’s new home is this months feature. “Working with Angerstein’s was a wonderful experience, they made my dream become a true reality and to do that you need vision, love, and knowledge. We worked so hard as a team and I see it when I walk in my door.”
What began as a drab colonial has become a stunning “rustic chic” farm house that is perfect for family living. The lighting for the home was selected to bring a sense of fun and whimsy to each room, while also providing quality lighting for cooking, entertaining, reading, homework and more.
Enter to Win a Craftmade Ceiling Fan – a $500 value.
Craftmade Fans: Energy conservation and rising fuel costs make ceiling fans a natural choice when it comes to conserving our natural resources. Ceiling fans not only circulate cool air in the summer, they also help with the movement of warm air in the winter.
During the summer months, a fan operating in the normal mode can reduce how cool you feel in a room by as much as eight degrees, allowing you to raise the air conditioner’s thermostat and reduce energy costs.
In the winter, fans should be operated in reverse mode to recirculate the warm air trapped at the ceiling. For maximum energy savings, turn your fans off when you leave a room.
More than just functional appliances, today’s fans have become an important design element in homes and are available in a wide array of sizes and styles.
Angersteins July Backyard Giveaway: Kichler Lighting
Angersteins July Backyard Giveaway: Kichler Lighting & Featured Business: Peter Kate
Peter Kate, a unique shoe & clothing boutique located in beautiful Greenville Delaware was established in 2001 by Mother and Daughter entrepreneurs Kathy Savage and Sissy Harris. Angersteins has been a long time client of the family.
“As a business owner and community member I love the level of customer service at Angersteins. says Harris. “They always have great ideas for the store as well as my home.”
When Sissy Harris and Kathy Savage decided to expand the existing store, they came to Angersteins to design the lighting. They wanted to create layers of light that would feature the clothing well, and enhance the look and feel of the store.
Products featured at Peter Kate: LumTech low voltage track lighting and Contrast low voltage recessed lighting with LED lamps. Crystorama & Hudson Valley Decorative lighting.
Sandy Conley, manager of Angerstein’s Lighting, “LED lighting is both effective and efficient for a retail setting. The high light output, 75% energy-savings, long life and full dimming capability make it an excellent replacement for the PAR halogen lamps. We use the Solais LED lamps at Peter Kate, as well as many other churches, art galleries and retail stores with outstanding results.”

Tricks of the Trade from Murray Feiss Designers
A great lighting strategy can do so much more than create a safe, inviting atmosphere in your home. With the right lighting scheme, you can dramatically enhance your home’s aesthetics (and value) by accentuating its best features, and de-emphasizing “problem areas.” Here, the world renowned lighting designers from Murray Feiss offer their exclusive tips and tricks!
Creative Ceiling Solutions
- To make low ceilings seem higher, bounce light from up-lighting fixtures (like torchiere-style wall sconces) to visually “raise” ceilings.
- To highlight dramatic Cathedral or beamed ceilings: Use wall sconces to cast uplight, emphasizing beamed ceilings.
- To disguise rough or patchy surfaces, keep lighting off of the ceiling by using only downlighting. Imperfections in a surface will be less noticeable without direct light shining on them. Beautiful, decorative fixtures (such as chandeliers) can also serve as alternate focal points.
Accent Lighting Tips
- Highlight textured surfaces for a fascinating look. Whether it’s a tile
- backsplash or a stone fireplace, textured surfaces should be brought to life with the proper accent lighting. For the best results, “skim” the surfaces with a slightly-angled light.
- Consider backlighting decorative objects. Placing a simple light behind decorative fixtures, like plants or sculptures, creates a fascinating accent lighting effect. This works particularly well with accent pieces that have translucent components, like glass or even the water in fountains.
Crystal Lighting Care
Every SCHONBEK® product is of heirloom quality and will last for generations. To ensure it retains its brilliance and splendor for years to come, proper care and regular cleaning are necessary.
It is recommended that SCHONBEK products, and particularly their crystal trim, be lightly dusted with a feather or lambswool duster, or soft brush every two months, or whenever it appears dull or dusty. A thorough cleaning should be completed every six months.
Before cleaning a SCHONBEK product, first locate the fixture’s trim diagram. This will assist in replacing the crystal trim in its proper location after cleaning. Should a replacement trim diagram be required, please call 800-836-1892 to speak with a SCHONBEK customer service representative, who can provide a new diagram.
SCHONBEK recommends several different cleaning methods, depending on the type of fixture. Some fixtures can be cleaned with limited removal of crystal, while others must be completely untrimmed.
Place a soft towel or blanket directly beneath the fixture to limit the damage to both the crystal and the surface below the fixture, should a piece of crystal be dislodged during the cleaning process.
Extreme care must be taken around any electrical fixture. For personal safety and the safety of the product, be sure that the fixture has been turned off. Never rotate or spin the fixture as this can cause the fixture to lose support and fall. Instead, move around the fixture while cleaning.

Kitchen Lighting Tips – Angersteins
Island counters and breakfast bars demand a combination of task and general lighting. A very good solution is to add a group of miniature pendants.
Mount each pendant so that the bottom of the shade is approximately 66″ above the floor so it is possible to look across the room below the pendants. If the shades are not very deep and there is seating at the kitchen island or peninsula, install the pendants a few inches lower (60″ above the floor).
In general, you should install one pendant for every two feet of counter space and try to use an odd number of pendants to create better balance. Thin, narrow pendants, however, might look more pleasing with the addition of one or two extra fixtures.

4 In The Air with RAB
RAB has a new program for companies that want to replace their inefficient parking lot lights called “4 In the Air “. Angersteins will order you 4 FREE lights that you install and keep at no charge for 2 months. If you don’t like them, return them to us. If you decide to keep them – we will bill you for them.
Call us for an appointment today. We also stock RAB’s LED wall packs. All RAB LED fixtures have a 100,000 hour lifespan based on IES LM-80 results and TM-21 calculations.
We took down our parking lot lights, three 400 watt metal halide bulbs, replaced with 78 watt LED lights by RAB.
At 100,000 hours, light output drops to 70% of initial output. But even at 70%, the LEDs are still
going strong, with a difference that is only subtly discernable to the human eye.

Lighting Favorites – Angersteins
French Beige Shantung shade with an exterior wrought iron framework for a strikingly different look. It is simple, yet elegant. The hand finishing process used on this chandelier lends an air of depth and richness not achieved by less time-consuming methods.
Imitating nature is a true art form that is expressed in this detail oriented wall sconce. The faux coral is beautifully recreated by hand. The off-white finish is enhanced with a natural looking application of sand. Wall sconces are sold as pin-ups which allows them to be either hardwired or plugged in.
Rustic burnished wood – available in 3,4, 6 chandelier or a wall bracket.
Lighting your entry area, don’t just concentrate on the inside lighting. The lighting outside your entry area, as well as the way the inside light is seen from outside your home, combine to create your home’s welcoming appeal. Be sure to direct some of the outside light downward to illuminate walking paths. And once inside, provide some overhead light to eliminate unwelcoming shadows.
Some favorite chandeliers from Currey & Co:
Keep in mind that light that shines upward or directly toward people’s eyes can create uncomfortable glare. Sooner or later, some of your guests will visit the powder room. Everyone feels better when they like what they see in the mirror, so choose light bulbs that flatter skin tones. And fixtures with an unexpected pop of texture and pattern can turn an otherwise ordinary space into an interesting private retreat.
In the living area, whether enjoying family time or entertaining, proper lighting makes every activity more enjoyable and aesthetically pleasing. An important element to a perfectly lit living area is proportion. Add the number of feet in your room’s length, width and height. That number (in feet) should be approximately the same as the number of inches of your light fixture’s height. Also, that fixture should hang 78-84 inches from the floor (as measured from the bottom of the fixture).

Top Lighting Trends
Home fashion bids a warm welcome to matte golds, which are richer and far more refined than their tacky, brassy relatives. Like the jewelry that inspires many of its forms and finishes, it pairs particularly well with gem tones.
Broche in Matte Gold is a jewelry-like creation from Crystorama that invites interpretation by homeowners. Reminiscent of sunbursts and sunflowers, it is designed for both ceiling and sconce mountings.
Pantone Color of the Year!
Currey & Co.’s eight-light Goddess chandelier is shown with Green glass on a wrought-iron frame that’s finished in Cupertino. It measures 49 inches tall and 30 inches in diameter.
Currey & Co.’s Chic table lamp is made of brass with a gold brilliance. It stands 32 inches tall with a 10-inch diameter.
Inspired by the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Schonbek’s basket-style Amytis is alive with floral motifs and jewel-like details. It is available in five seasonal crystal and finish combinations. Made with Swarovski Elements.
