How to Choose the Right Lightbulb


17 Feb 2023

How to Choose the Right Lightbulb Selecting the right lightbulb for your fixture can make or break the overall ambiance of a room. Although it seems like an easy task, there are a few fundamental things to consider when choosing the best bulb for your needs. First, let’s break down what the terms on the light bulb package mean. Lumens indicate the amount of light that a bulb emits. The higher the lumens, the brighter the bulb. Watts are the amount of energy that a bulb uses when turned on. The same rule to lumens applies to wattage – the higher the wattage, the more energy consumed. LED bulbs have much lower wattage numbers, while still producing the same amount of light as incandescent bulbs, making them a more energy efficient option. Kelvins indicate the color appearance of a bulb. The lower the kelvin temperature, the more yellow or warm light is emitted, and the higher the kelvin temperature, the more blue or cool light is emitted. Incandescent bulbs tend to ...

History of Quoizel Lighting


12 Oct 2022

Quoizel Lighting has been a leader in the industry for over 90 years. Founded in 1930 by Michael Chaikin, the company started as a table lamp shop in Manhattan. The name “Quoizel” comes from astrology, having to do with the alignment of several plants at the time of the company’s birth.Chaikin was focused on the curation of hurricane lamps which were fueled off of oil, rather than electricity. The most popular lamp was the Abigail Adams – which Quoizel sold up until a few years ago. As the brand evolved, Quoizel moved into electric lamps and fixtures, starting to offer a full line of hardwire lighting products. In 1964, Ira Phillips came onto the team as Director of Merchandising and Sales. Under his vision, Quoizel became a leader in lighting design and trends. In 1986, Phillips gained sole ownership of the company.One of the main highlights in the Quoizel line is the affordable collection of Tiffany lamps. Quoizel’s unique approach to Tiffany is fueled by our focus on st...
