Connecticut Lighting Centers Has New Custom Ceiling Medallions 

Local artist Marie Ricci in Essex, Connecticut creates cast hand-carved original custom medallions. These artisan pieces are hand painted, so no two items are exactly alike. She has been featured in Style and Home Magazine and has worked with some famous Hollywood clients.

The medallions come in a variety of styles. Feeling creative? You can also get a primed white medallion that you can hand-paint yourself. Most of the medallions are cast in a lightweight resin making them easy to transport and are easy to install. Prices range from $39.95-$180.95 depending on the size and style.

With the right Medallion, your lighting fixture can make a dramatic fashion statement.  Stop by our showrooms to see these medallions and many more on display and speak with our Sales Consultants who will help you pick the perfect medallion.

Cool, sleek sophistication is why the entire Downtown Collection, which includes chandeliers, pendants, sconces, a mirror and bathroom lights, has been a best seller since the collection was introduced in 2010.  Gleaming glass ball accents compliment the opal etched glass drum shade and shiny chrome finish bringing a soft modern sensibility to your home.
