Materials: Leaf gilding, vintage lighting, vintage Murano glass and new components.

The goods: Chandeliers ($2,400 to $4,200) and table lamps ($900 to $1,600), like the bubble table lamp pictured below.

Haute colors: Blue or clear glass

What’ next: Showing about 50 new pieces at the fall High Point Market (NC), the largest furnishings industry trade show in the world. The fall market runs Oct. 18-23.
