Love It Lighting had a guest starring role in the TV series A Gifted Man. Our fixture # 30/16-857 ESW help illuminate the way in this, now canceled, CBS TV show.
“A Gifted Man is an American television series, which premiered on CBS on September 23, 2011.The series is about a talented but self-absorbed surgeon who starts questioning his purpose in life when he is visited by the spirit of his deceased ex-wife.”
“Michael Holt (Patrick Wilson) is a talented but self-absorbed surgeon at an upscale New York City clinic. He lives a comfortable and materialistic life due to the wealthy clients he treats, but is nevertheless discontented with his life and acts coldly to those around him. His life is thrown into disarray, however, when he is visited by the ghost of his ex-wife Anna Paul (Jennifer Ehle), who was recently killed in a car accident. Anna asks Michael to help keep running the free clinic she previously directed, which leads Michael to be exposed to poorer patients in need who are far different from his usual clientele.” *

Outdoor lighting fixtures are an excellent way to add beauty and security to your business home, but some buyers do not realize that many outdoor lighting fixtures can actually be harmful. The International Dark-Sky Association, a non-profit organization committed to providing information, education and research about the hazards of light pollution, warns that, “Light pollution wastes energy, harms ecosystems, increases greenhouse gasses, threatens astronomical research and effects human health.”
Improper Outdoor Lighting Creates Energy Inefficiency
In our attempt to create safe and beautiful outdoor areas, we may be compromising our health and the health of our planet by installing poorly designed and poorly placed outdoor lighting fixtures. Improper outdoor lighting fixtures allow light to escape upwards, resulting in over-lighting and significant energy waste. According to the IDA, in the U.S. alone, wasted light cost 2.2 billion dollars annually and requires the energy equivalent to 12.9 billion barrels of oil or 3.6 million tons of coal.
Glare-Bombs Create Safety Issues
Ironically, over-lighting does not create safer spaces; in fact, it creates just the opposite. Too much light on a specific area results in what is known as a “glare-bomb.” Glare-bombs not only waste energy, they actually prevent you from seeing what may be lurking in the shadows, as demonstrated in this illustration from the Florida Atlantic University, Department of Physics.
Light Pollution Creates Health Issues
Over-lighting is not only a security hazard, it can also be a health hazard. The IDA warns of the health risk associated with light pollution including the disruption of the biological cycles of both sleep and eating. Over-exposure to excessive artificial lighting may also be linked to health issues including diabetes, obesity, and some types of cancers. Light pollution not only affects the health of humans, it can also affect the health of wildlife, disrupting the foraging, mating and migrating behaviors of some nocturnal wildlife.
Love IT Lighting Remains Committed to the Environment

We proudly carry a wide variety of Dark Sky Friendly outdoor lighting fixtures that not only enhance and protect your home and business, but help protect the environment.

A chandelier in the bathroom? A hanging jar fixture over your kitchen island? You bet! Every 5 to 10 years, lighting trends change. Ceiling fans and bar lights are two examples that can date a home. Adding an unexpected lighting fixture is an easy and affordable way to create that WOW factor in any room, and update an outdated space. First, begin by thinking like an interior designer.
Designers use interior lighting to create mood in a space. While the placement of the lighting is critical to the mood, so too, can be the lighting fixture itself. For example, instead of that outdated bar light over your powder room vanity, why not add a touch of elegance, warmth and sophistication by replacing it with something like this Cream Cloth Drum pendant.
Or, keep the feel of bar lighting by simply replacing it with this modern Cone Light. Both work without overpowering even the smallest of spaces.
Modern Pendant Lighting with a Twist
Feeling funky? Replace those tired, traditional kitchen island pendants with something like these re-purposed Mason Jar Lighting Fixtures. Whether French Country or New York Industrial, this whimsical fixture, when doubled or tripled up, adds a fresh and modern feel. Combine fun and function when creating your culinary masterpiece by using Mason Jar Lighting Fixtures designed to complement any décor.
Chandeliers Add a Classic Touch to Every Room in Your Home
No longer relegated to the dining room, chandeliers are finding their way into other home spaces as both main and secondary lighting fixtures. Now offered in a variety of styles and sizes, chandeliers can be used to showcase any room in your home, including bathrooms, bedrooms, and even outdoor living areas.
Chandeliers are perfect lighting fixtures for any space in need of some instant elegance. As statement pieces, chandeliers draw attention to themselves and add drama to a room. As an accent piece, chandeliers add interest to an otherwise uninteresting space.
With so many to choose from, chandeliers no longer evoke that stodgy feel of a traditional formal dining room.
Using Conventional Lighting in Unconventional Ways
When adding lighting fixtures to your home, consider using light in unconventional ways. For example, why not use pendant lights as reading lamps, or as spot lights in alcoves, tray ceilings and wall niches to add interest and drama to the architectural features of your home.
Love IT Lighting, offers easy on-line shopping, combining wide selection with affordable pricing. Our modern and traditional styles are appropriate for residential or commercial applications, with many suitable as both indoor lighting fixtures and outdoor lighting fixtures.

As many parts of the country continue to set record-breaking, cold temperatures, it’s hard to believe that spring is less than a month away! Now is a great time to conquer those winter blues by turning your thoughts to spring home improvements. Planning outdoor projects not only saves time and money later, but can also be a great way to keep your mind off of what’s going on outside.
Lighting is a great starting point for outdoors home improvement projects. Outdoor lighting fixtures add beauty, value and security to your home. But before buying or replacing, take a moment to assess your outdoor lighting needs. While some outdoor lighting fixtures are attractive inside the box, this may not be the case once mounted to your home.
When purchasing an outdoor lighting fixture, consider the following: is it the right size and style for your home; is it durable enough to withstand the elements of your region; and finally, is it dark sky friendly, a term used to describe the appropriate amount and type of lighting for a specific space.
Outdoor Lighting that Compliments Your Home
Your outdoor lighting fixture should not be the focally point of your home. For example, a modern porch light might not be the best fit for a seventy-five year old Dutch colonial. Look for outdoor lighting fixtures that complement the style, era, or design of your home instead of those that draw immediate attention to themselves.
Outdoor Lighting That is Safe
Besides looking great, you will want to purchase outdoor lighting fixtures that stand up to the elements.Outdoor lighting fixtures marked “Suitable for Damp Locations” or “Suitable for Wet Locations” should be the only ones used is areas normally or periodically subject to condensation, or locations adjacent to the electrical components of a lighting fixture. In contrast, “bleaching” becomes a concern when installing outdoor lighting in desert regions. Make sure to consider the elements your lighting fixtures must endure before making a purchasing.
Outdoor Lighting for Your House…Not the Neighbor’s
Finally, when choosing outdoor lighting, remember the Golden Rule. Outdoor lighting fixtures should concentrate the desired amount of light on a specific area. If you’re illuminating your neighbor’s window instead of your pathway, it may be time for a replacement. Dated outdoor fixtures tend to diffuse the light, spreading it out over a larger space, instead of concentrating just the right amount of light on a specific area.
Love It Lighting offers a wide variety of durable and affordable outdoor lighting fixtures designed to complement any home. Whether traditional or contemporary, our durable fixtures are designed to highlight your spaces without overpowering them. Check out our online solutions for all your lighting needs and remember… think spring!
Your home should be a sanctuary; a refuge where family and friends gather in comfortable spaces to rest, relax and renew. But, instead of feeling re-energized and content, does spending time in your home leave you feeling overwhelmed and claustrophobic? If some rooms are calling to you, while others scream to be avoided, it may be the lighting. Design experts agree that choosing the proper indoor lighting fixtures are just as important as the layout and furnishing when designing inviting, well-functioning spaces within your home.
Creating the Right Light with the Right Fixtures
For many homeowners, lighting fixtures are almost an after-thought when it comes to designing a space. However, without the correct room lighting, a romantic, evening dinner party may feel more like dining at the doctor’s office! Lighting sets the tone and creates the mood in a space. Indoor lighting fixtures can either enhance or take-away from the design aesthetic of your home. By doing a little homework and with a little help from the experts at Love It Lighting, you can choose the right lighting fixtures for each room in your house.
To determine the proper lighting fixture for a room, consider two things: the typical functions performed in the space and the people performing them. For example, a Sputnik Pendant lighting fixture gives a funky, cool vibe to a retro inspired kitchen, however may steal the spotlight from a well-set dining room table. Installing a trio of Mason Jar Pendant lighting fixtures, however, would not only draw attention to a beautiful table, but would provide a warm, ambient glow, and carry the hip feeling from the kitchen in to the dining room.
