5 Common Mistakes When Choosing Light Fixtures

Jan
25

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Lighting comes in diverse forms and sizes that it almost feels impossible to end up with the right fixture that suits your space. We understand this difficulty, therefore, we rounded up five common mistakes to avoid so you can narrow down your options.  

1. Prioritizing Design Over Purpose

While design is a big factor, one of the most common mistakes is disregarding function and impulsively buying a fixture for decorative purposes only. We recommend exploring our THIN Modular Lighting System that exemplifies both form and function. It encapsulates a collection of minimal lighting that stays true to its purpose.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image="9406" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/thin-surface-mount-display-light/"][vc_column_text]

2. Using One Fixture as the Only Light Source

Although the brightness of a space depends its foot-candles and a fixture's lumens, a single fixture is normally not sufficient enough to illuminate an entire space. Think in layers instead, and utilize your main source as a foundation to translate a dull space into a well-lit space. Discover effortless lighting solutions such as the Axis X with four perpendicular light arrays and the Metropolis Suspension with lumens of up to 8,200LM.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image="8907" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/axis-x/"][vc_column_text]

3. Overlooking Lighting Temperatures & CRI

The wrong color temperature can make your space feel uninspiring and generally not pleasing to look at, while poor Color-Rendering Index (CRI) can make an object's color look inaccurate under a light source. Discover the right lighting temperature and CRI for any space here.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image="10925" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/thin-suspension/"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

4. Neglecting dimmers

Some would feel that dimmers only add excess cost, however, these power accessories can actually save your fixture’s lifespan and your electric bill in the long run. Our Ground Control Dimmers allow you to easily control your lighting consumption and adjust your space’s atmosphere, while displaying luxurious aesthetics with its brass finish.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image="7103" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/power-accessories/"][vc_column_text]

5. Failing to consider your space's color

Dominant colors in any space can dictate what metal finish can complement it. We offer all of our products in varied luxurious finishes, so users can have the option to embellish their space with their choice of color.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image="12752" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/the-metropolis-wall-sconce/"][vc_column_text]

Jamie Chioco, Principal Designer of Chioco Design

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="42px"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]Based in Austin, Texas, Chioco Design is a firm that reinforces local design quality by focusing on private and commercial projects within the proximity. Due to their success, Chioco Design's services expanded in Tennessee, Colorado, and California to name a few. We interviewed Chioco Design's Principal Designer, Jamie Chioco, to discover more about the design firm.  

Tell Us About Your Design Background

After graduating from the University of Oklahoma School of Architecture, I founded Chioco Design in 2005. Our team is composed of individuals with diverse backgrounds in architecture and they also express their creativity through other design outlets such as fashion, interior design, ceramics, and furniture design.  

What's your Favorite Project So Far?

That's a difficult question because each project is unique. I try to choose projects we work on based on experiences we can learn and grow from as a team.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="42px"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Any Favorite or Least Favorite Design Tips?

I always tell my clients that any project succeeds when there is mutual collaboration between the architect, client, and contractor. Communication is ultimately the most important aspect of that. In terms of design tips, I don't have any favorite since they are mostly too general. The only thing I would recommend is to have a sense of scale and proportion, and do not assume that big, open spaces are always the best solutions.  

Describe Your Design Aesthetic

Our aesthetics are reflected as rich in material, contemporary, and innovative. We design our projects to be as functional as they are beautiful by integrating both natural and man-made materials throughout the space.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="42px"][vc_gallery interval="3" images="15960,15959,15958,15963,15957" img_size="full" onclick=""][vc_column_text]

Why do you choose Juniper in your projects, and what is your favorite fixture?

Juniper is a manufacturer of high-quality light fixtures that embody a refined design. My favorite are the geometric pendants from the THIN Primaries Collection because all of the shapes are striking. In fact, we have installed the THIN Primaries Square across our projects like in FreeIt Data Solution's conference room and a recent penthouse renovation in Austin, Texas.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="42px"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="15966" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/2018/06/26/freeit-data-solutions-thin-primaries-square/"][vc_column_text]

3 Suspended Lighting Designs for Minimalists

Jan
23

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Gravitating toward simple design establishes a comfortable space. Not only do minimal designs take away visual clutter, but they also provide a refined aesthetic. This applies to decor, furniture, and lighting. We picked our top 3 suspended lighting designs to help you fulfill a space curated especially for minimalists.  

1. Linear Vertical Pendant

The THIN Vertical Suspension embodies the most reductive form—a single line. This design elegantly exudes a linear silhouette without the distraction of protruding elements. Displaying a 1/2-inch diameter segment, the brass fixture is supported by a slender cable. Install 1, 3, 4, or 6 segments (custom options available upon request) and allow its luxurious finish to convey a sophisticated installation.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="12527" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/thin-vertical-suspension/"][vc_column_text]

2. Modern Geometric Lighting

Being a minimalist is synonymous to being clutter-free. Trim your tabletop footprint by opting for a suspended fixture that holds a simple form. We recommend opting for geometric shapes with symmetrical clean lines, like the THIN Primaries Triangle. The THIN Primaries Collection utilizes our signature magnetically connected light segments that can be customized into any shape and size.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="4180" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/thin-primaries-triangle/"][vc_column_text]

3. Ultra-slim Vertical Light Prism

Suspended lighting designs with straight lines narrate a minimalist's space and emphasize clean interior. With the THIN Multiples Vertical Suspension, it radiates a minimal silhouette from its three or four linear light segments that can be rotated 360°. It appears sleek with its tasteful orientation that suspend from a single aircraft cable.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="11298" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/thin-multiples-vertical-suspension/"][vc_column_text]

Top 5 Modern Design Trends This 2019

Jan
22

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Some trends are a thing of the past and what was modern in 2018 may be outdated this 2019. Juniper, a New York lighting manufacturer and design studio, keeps in track of new designs and vintage aesthetics to coordinate with our products. From figures, to materials, and colors, these are the top modern design trends you should watch out for this year.  

1. Curved Furniture And Organic-Shaped Decor

Boxy furniture and decor suggest clean design but may appear utilitarian in some spaces. Incorporate rounded pieces to refine your space and indicate sophistication. Curved forms, like Haute House Home's tufted velvet sofa, recall the Art Deco period that turns these into classic shapes. It adds a delicate touch to contemporary spaces with intricate architectural elements.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="14544" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" img_link_target="_blank" link="https://hautehousehome.com/default.aspx"][vc_column_text]

2. Modern Wood Design Elements

Modern spaces are pursued by minimal design and contemporary decorative pieces. Add warmth to your space by selecting wood as the dominant material for tables, shelves, or light fixtures. Holding a bronze or wood body, our Axis Collection encapsulates wall-mounted and suspended light fixtures that create a statement for its luxurious aesthetics, revived from the Industrial Revolution.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="14549" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/axis-x-vertical-suspension/"][vc_column_text]

3. High-Textured Fabric

There is a growing demand for modern design trends that nod to mid-century modern aesthetics such as velvet, suede, and linen fabric. These materials adapt fairly well to contemporary spaces beaming with color and furnishings. Reflect textiles by de Le Cuona or Hartmann & Forbes in ottomans, poufs, or wallpapers.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="14552" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" img_link_target="_blank" link="https://delecuona.com/"][vc_column_text]

4. Hexagonal Lighting

Today's market demands simple and straightforward designs to complement their minimal style. With modern aesthetics, the shape of the hexagon has been taken to a new level in popularity. Our Metropolis Collection exudes brilliant lighting from its bi-sectional hemispheres, with the option to add a hexagonal mesh. This feature diffuses the output while transposing the fixture into a resilient design.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="14556" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/metropolis/"][vc_column_text]

5. Millennial Color Palettes

This year's modern design trends are not only about muted tones and monochromatic color palettes. Don't be afraid to throw a few shades into your interiors. Avoid distraction by selecting colors that are easy on the eyes like Calico's prismatic wallpapers.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="14559" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" img_link_target="_blank" link="https://calicowallpaper.com/"][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="14560" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" img_link_target="_blank" link="https://calicowallpaper.com/"][vc_column_text]

3 Vertical Suspended Light Fixtures with Modern Aesthetics

Jan
21

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Contributing value to architecture, we introduced vertical suspended light fixtures that complement contemporary design through their form and function. They embody a minimal profile to create a comfortable space. Going beyond their aesthetics, all of these were thoughtfully engineered to provide lighting solutions and serve their utmost purpose of illuminating spaces, all while maximizing the benefits of LED lamping to reduce energy waste. Discover our 3 new vertical suspended light fixtures below.  

1. THIN Vertical Suspension

The THIN Vertical Suspension drops as a single line, endorsing the evolution of reductive design. Adding to its slender structure is its 1/2-inch diameter segment that rotates 360° on-site for adjustable lighting capabilities. Install the THIN Vertical Suspension as a single segment or combine 3, 4, or 6 segments for unique clusters of light. We recommend adjusting each light segment's drop height to execute a curated lighting cascade.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="14855" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/thin-vertical-suspension/"][vc_column_text]

2. THIN Multiples Vertical Suspension

Extending the THIN Multiples Triad and Tetrad's design, we developed vertical orientations. The THIN Multiples Vertical Suspension Triad and Tetrad have three and four 1/2-inch LED segments per configuration. Encased in brass straps, segments can be independently repositioned by rotating and are fully dimmable for a custom ambience.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="11298" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/thin-multiples-vertical-suspension"][vc_column_text]

3. Axis X Vertical Suspension

Balancing light and architecture, the Axis X Vertical Suspension beams an enticing X or + (plus) silhouette from its four LED light arrays. Although it holds a satisfying weight, the bronze or wood fixture tastefully suspends from a single mounting point using a slim, sturdy aircraft cable. The Axis X Vertical Suspension is recommended to be installed as a single configuration or a cluster due to its powerful illumination.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="11285" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/axis-x-vertical-suspension/"][vc_column_text]

3 Contemporary Staircase Lighting Tips From Designers

Dec
26

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Standing as a spine in any modern space, staircases should be given high importance when laying out lighting plans. The lack of light is just as dangerous as overdoing it, so we spoke to designers for staircase lighting tips to help transpose your stairway into more than just an architectural element that connects floors.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

1. Safety First

Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) enforces the standards for equal access to the public. They indicated that when using wall sconces, your fixture should have a maximum depth of 4 inches and be mounted at least 27 inches to 84 inches from the floor. All of our wall sconces are ADA compliant, including our Metropolis Wall Sconce, Axis Wall Sconce, and THIN Surface Mount in 1.75 and 3.5-inch standoff heights.  

2. Repeat Fixtures Along the Staircase to Create a Pathway

Besides a fixture's design, your staircase's lighting plan also dictates how it elevates your space. Install a series of lights, using either suspended or wall-mounted fixtures, to create a stunning pathway that also serves as a wayfinder for a sure-footed staircase. However, repeating fixtures increases the total light output of your space, which may stun your eyes. Install on a dimmer for full control over the intensity to maintain the right level of brightness throughout the space.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image="12552" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/axis-x-vertical-suspension"][vc_column_text]

3. Choose LED Lamping

Staircases are usually left illuminated throughout the entire night to accommodate guests in hospitality and commercial spaces. A smart staircase lighting tip would be to opt for LED fixtures that help reduce electric bills. LED lamping also has an outstanding lifespan of up to 50,000 hours or 15 years and produces high-output lighting while using less wattage. Juniper fixtures are innovated to operate using the lowest wattage possible for every lighting design. While incandescent bulbs are cheaper and also give users the option to choose lower wattage, its output also reduces drastically.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image="14307" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/axis-wall-sconce/"][vc_column_text]

5 Inspiring Interior Spaces from Juniper’s Instagram

Dec
12

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We scrolled on our Instagram feed and handpicked our favorite interiors to get you inspired, whether you are looking to build or remodel any residential, commercial, or hospitality space.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

1. Pastel Arched Corridor

Arches are commonly integrated with corridors to help transpose it into an elevated passageway that connects one space to another. Properly illuminate hallways with fixtures that possess high-output lighting. Position it vertically and dimmed slightly to allow users to walk comfortably without glare.

 

What we used:

36 in. & 48 in. Metropolis Wall Sconces in Satin Brass[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

2. Contemporary Waiting Lounge

Besides being a comfortable area to sit back and relax, a lounge's design narrates a brand's aesthetics. Curating a thoughtful interior also suggests a user's experience of feeling welcomed while waiting. Keep the lounge simple and let geometric light fixtures do the talking.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="50px"][vc_column_text]What we used: A cluster of three 36 in. THIN Primaries Hexagon in Satin Nickel[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

3. Minimalist Bathroom Vanity

Modern design is frequently associated with minimal and linear profiles. Opt for designs that resonate with your clean aesthetics, like contemporary linear lighting. Place your fixtures on each end of your bathroom mirrors to provide ample lighting for morning routines.

 

What we used:

Three 36 in. THIN Surface Mount Vanity Lights in Black Oxide[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

4. Mid-century Modern Restaurant

Restaurant interiors like Proxi in Chicago are big on branding, as seen in their color scheme and furniture selections. This influences hospitality designers to turn to custom lighting for a more tailored aesthetic. Contact our sales team to learn more about custom fixtures for large-scale projects.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="50px"][vc_column_text]What we used: Custom wall-mounted swivel pendant by Juniper[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

5. Luxury Coworking Space

Coworking spaces need a more structured lighting plan since it is shared by guests. The Assemblage John Street location opted for fixtures that are suitable for productive tasks and those with segments that can rotate for lighting adjustability.

 

What we used:

Four THIN Shared Task Lamps in Satin Nickel with Ground Control Toggle Switches[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

3 Desk Lighting Inspirations From Juniper’s Instagram To Reduce Tabletop Footprint

Dec
11

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Desk lighting is often associated with table lamps for their traditional function. However, most lamps embody bulky designs, leaving you with less space for productive tasks. We looked back on our Instagram feed and found creative ways to blend tasteful design with function as an alternative to conventional lamps.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

1. Minimal Tabletop Lamp

In order to avoid perceiving your lamp as clutter, opt for fixtures with desk inset. This helps reduce an unnecessary footprint, especially for desks that have limited space. Another solution would be the THIN Shared Task Lamp, an ideal unit for coworking spaces, offices, or study areas. Users can seamlessly connect up to three rotatable segments of the library-inspired lamp to create a more efficient desk lighting. Pair the THIN Shared Task Lamp with our Ground Control Toggle Switch and Ground Control Dimmers in the same luxurious metal finish to harmonize a productive working station.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

2. Geometric Pendant

The THIN Primaries Triangle proves that desk lighting does not need to literally sit on top of your table. Tasks can be effortlessly done with the help of the geometric fixture's three powerful segments beautifully crafted into an equilateral triangle. Take advantage of the THIN Primaries Triangle's fully rotatable segments to reposition lighting as needed. Other mesmerizing shapes include a rhombus, rectangle, hexagon, and square.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

3. High-output Linear Lighting

For duties that depend on high-output lighting, we recommend our Metropolis Suspension. It was born from a larger collection of wall-mounted and wall-to-wall fixtures, primarily designed by Juniper and David Meckley to illuminate the music-venue-turned-office of Argonaut in San Francisco. With this intention, the Metropolis Suspension has two hemispheres that exude a strong output of up to 8,200LM that users can independently dim. This suspended fixture also gives users the option to add a hexagonal mesh diffuser to soften lighting.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

5 Reasons To Install The THIN Multiples Vertical Suspension

Dec
10

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Emerging from a large collection of the THIN Modular Lighting System, the THIN Multiples first debuted with the Dyad, Triad, and Tetrad. Due to popular demand, the Triad and Tetrad were extended into vertical orientations to amplify its linear aesthetics. Below are reasons why the THIN Multiples Vertical Suspension should be on your to-buy list.  

1. Has Rotatable Segments

The THIN Multiples Vertical Suspension is available in two designs. The Triad is composed of three light segments, while the Tetrad has four. Their segments fully rotate to allow users to reposition its lighting direction to match their preference.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="13339" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/thin-multiples-vertical-suspension"][vc_column_text]

2. Connects Magnetically

The THIN Multiples Vertical Suspension magnetically interconnects, making installation quick and easy. End brackets hold LED segments parallel to each other. Although segments are unable to interconnect for longer runs, the THIN Multiples Vertical Suspension's drop height can be adjusted during installation to adorn spaces with high ceilings or simply create a chandelier using a single aircraft cable.  

3. Available in Luxurious Finishes

The brass fixture is refined with its elegant metal finishes. Available in Satin Brass, Satin Nickel, and Black Oxide, users have a multitude of options to embellish their space with the THIN Multiples Vertical Suspension.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="11294" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/thin-multiples-vertical-suspension"][vc_column_text]

4. Features Customizable Options

The THIN Multiples Vertical Suspension boasts its ability to be completely customized. Users can select their choice of metal finish, lens finish, and color temperature. It is also available in two lengths (24 in. & 36 in) to cater to both large and small spaces.  

5. Elongated Life with Dimmer Compatibility

With the THIN Multiples Vertical Suspension’s LED lamping, the fixture is compatible with our Ground Control Dimmers. This feature gives users full control over energy consumption to minimize the LED’s heat output that destroys fixtures over time. Pair it with the Ground Control Toggle Switch for a more logical function that flaunts vintage aesthetics.

5 Modern Decor Tips To Maximize Small Spaces

Nov
16

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Downsizing your space can force you to squeeze your belongings in utilitarian organizing ideas and ruin your plans of decorating the space you’ve always dreamt of. To identify solutions, we've provided strategic modern decor tips for small spaces.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

1. Get a Floor-length Mirror

Spaces with high ceilings and huge windows aren’t the only ones that can look elevated. You can trick anyone’s eyes using a tall mirror to make any space look larger than it is. A large mirror's reflection can also magnify any tight space when situated correctly.  

2. Opt for minimal multi-purpose furniture

One of our modern decor tips is never sacrificing function for design alone when there are multi-functional pieces. Look into beds with built-in storage or those that allow under-bed storage, flattering foldable desks, or storage ottomans & poufs that can easily be tucked under another piece of furniture when needed.  

3. Reduce Clutter

Keeping a space clean and clutter-free makes a world of difference. It keeps the space free-flowing and your fung shui on-point. Removing knick-knacks and unnecessary objects from furniture will easily make your space appear larger.

4. Build up, not out

Living in a small space should not scare you to divide it further to determine their functions. Modern shelving can imitate a room divider while remaining as added storage. Instead of overcrowding your things all over the place, we would recommend organizing vertically to reduce footprint. Consider walls to build storage up instead of across your floor plan. It will keep floors open and draw the eye upward instead.  

5. Add Minimal Lighting

Lighting is an integral part of any space, whether it be a small or large space. We recommend exploring our THIN Modular Lighting System that encapsulates fixtures with 1/2-inch diameter segments. The THIN System's rotatable segments are also known to customize a direct and indirect lighting experience. This cuts the need to layer fixtures for proper lighting while elevating your space.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="12566" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/thin-surface-mount-vanity-light/"][vc_column_text]
