Every year the lighting industry has a huge convention at the Dallas Market Center in Dallas Texas called "Lightovation". This year it will be held January 17-21, 2018...and yes, we will be there. We have attended this convention faithfully for over 15 years now and always look forward to it because it is the place where every major lighting manufacturer shows off their latest greatest products for the new year.

Every year we see some basic theme driven by current trends in interior design. Whether it be a particular style, finish or technology, what we see at this convention jump-starts our plans for the year and helps drive what you see on our website. The last couple of years LED lighting has been a huge focus and this year we expect the category to explode. The technology is advancing rapidly and consumer awareness of their energy savings has grown as well. Using LEDs in lighting opens up a whole new world of design possibilities, and I'm sure every lighting designer has dreams and visions of previously unimagined ways to use them...and we will see many of those dreams come true this year!

We look forward to reporting back to you what is new and exciting in the lighting industry, so make sure you join our mailing list so you can stay informed of the latest lighting trends and be among the first to have access to what's new and exciting this year.

Here's a video that recaps last year's Lightovation 2017
