Lighting Your Collection

American designer Sandra Liotus and British engineer Sir David Crampton-Barden are the creative team behind the Newport, R.I.-based custom lighting design firm Sandra Liotus Lighting Design, LLC (SLLD). Blending their expertise to create innovative lighting solutions, this pioneering duo has developed the art world’s most sophisticated eco-friendly custom lighting system.

Lighting is key to every environment and is just as important to an interior as the fine finishes and decoration that has been carefully curated. If the space is not lit properly without a balance and sensitivity in design, the expensive, carefully planned interiors will look common place.

Sharing a profound attention to detail, while combining their expert knowledge of engineering and design, this talented duo forges bespoke lighting systems as unique as the fine artwork itself.

Simple Crochet Demonstration

No one is quite sure when and where crochet got its start. The word comes from croc, or croche, the Middle French word for hook. Crochet began turning up in Europe in the early 1800s and was given a tremendous boost by Mlle. Riego de la Branchardiere, who was best known for her ability to take old-style needle and bobbin lace designs and turn them into crochet patterns that could easily be duplicated.
