bright idea

February 6, 2014


Atlanta’s Crawford Bray learned to appreciate art in many forms at early age. He studied painting at age six and danced with New York City’s Metropolitan Opera.

With a sharp eye for design, Bray began his career in interior design working with New York-based designer Howard Kaplan. He later served as director of the antiques division at Jerry Pair, which has a showroom in Atlanta.

With his background as a buyer, designer and merchandiser, Bray decided to start his started his own line (Crawford Bray Design) of unique home furnishings and re-imagined objects, including lighting.

To create his sophisticated sconces, Bray uses new and antique elements. He reworks antique, wrought iron spikes (below) into a sculptural pair of sconces ($850 at Atlanta Made, 1187 Howell Mill Road).

With crystal spikes, he creates a pair of scones ($1,700 at The Mercantile, 1430 Dresden Drive) that add an elegant focus to a home or office wall. The custom shades and mounting pieces are made in the greater Atlanta area.
