Libby Langdon’s New Lighting Line for Crystorama

Langdon lets her interior design instincts shine in her fixture creations.

Libby Langdon: My design process begins with the invaluable one-on-one time I spend with my interior design clients, learning about their likes and dislikes. They’re my ultimate R&D. I use that insight in every product I design.

I never want to design anything that’s totally crazy or way out there, because I find clients want a look that they can live with for a long time. I try to create timeless lighting fixtures rooted in classic forms with a modern twist. I look at the common threads of design projects I’ve done in the last eight months. Then I look to style cues that I see homeowners choosing to spend their money on. I spend time sourcing looks they want and cannot find. These days, I find men are just as interested as women in the design and furnishings of their homes. Lighting fixtures are a big component of what usually needs to be agreed upon by a couple.

As an interior designer, lighting is one of the most important tools I can use to make a space warm and inviting. For me, it’s about layers of light and multiple sources. While the look of a fixture may draw us in, it needs to function for the tasks and activities happening in that space. I have a responsibility to help clients make their homes work well for their lifestyles. Accomplishing that continues to drive my business and make it grow. So while I adore honing the form and design of a lighting fixture, its function for a family’s lifestyle is important to me.

My Jennings Collection offers dynamic design, stunning light spread and just the right amount of bling. I designed a unique, chic and timeless polished nickel pattern that gives a graphic feel without overpowering a space. The Jennings pattern is my best-selling original wallpaper pattern. It translates beautifully to lighting. An inner linen shade adds texture, while a diffuser softens the light. I love the way the pattern is highlighted differently in various fixtures. The large pendant shows the full-scale version of the pattern. The wall sconce and the ceiling mount highlight a different, smaller section of the pattern. This lets people use several pieces from the collection in the same space without it feeling too matchy-matchy.
