We are pleased to see that “Generational Retreat” has been featured on EBOSS with the title “Modern and Pared-Back Lighting Complements Contemporary Home”.

“Reflecting Generational Retreat’s contemporary aesthetic, the lighting fixtures selected are both modern and minimal. The dark grey and black finishes of the cylindrical surface fixtures and pendants complement the large black steel window frames and black switch details. The lighting design is pared-back, with a focus on creating intimate pools of illumination adding to the relaxed ambience of the house. Slender profiles and unobtrusive stair lights were selected to provide functional lighting without interrupting the minimal aesthetic.”
