KingsHaven, a national retailer and maker of artisan-quality lighting, has announced its sponsorship of the Junior League of Detroit 2020 Designers’ Show House, set to take place Sept. 19 – Oct. 4, 2020, in Detroit. KingsHaven will sponsor the show house by designing and providing 15 light fixtures for the exterior front entrance, upper and lower foyer, kitchen, and master bathroom.
“We are extremely excited to collaborate with designers to produce lighting for them in beautiful spaces of the Junior League of Detroit 2020 Designers’ Show House,” said Lauren Wylonis, chief executive officer, founder and lead designer with KingsHaven. “Not only will our partnership provide us an incredible opportunity to help transform one of Detroit’s most significant homes with customized light fixtures, we will be simultaneously raising funds and awareness for Project EAT, the show house’s key community impact initiative.”
A pair of KingsHaven Agincourt Lantern Sconces are being planned to flank the show house’s grand entrance door. The lantern sconces were chosen by Liana Dabir, show house co-chair, to illuminate the exterior front entrance of the 16,000-square-foot Georgian-style mansion.
KingsHaven will bring light to the upper and lower foyer, designed by ShowHouse Interiors, with the KingsHaven Shift Pendant and four KingsHaven Shift Sconces. Jeanine Haith, founder of ShowHouse Interiors, was attracted to the unique and artful elements of the Shift lighting collection. The Shift Pendant will be hung from the lower foyer ceiling, accompanied by two Shift Sconces mounted on the entryway’s walls. The other two Shift Sconces will be installed in the upper foyer. They were chosen, in part, to yield a touch of contemporary influence in the 1909-built home. A pair of KingsHaven Eden Sconces will be displayed in the side corridors of the upper foyer.
The kitchen, designed by Jean Stoffer Design, will feature the KingsHaven Marais Lantern as a functional focal point over the breakfast nook table. A pair of KingsHaven Skye III Sconces will flank a large window over the main kitchen sink, providing targeted illumination for important kitchen tasks. Stoffer chose the Skye III Sconces because of their asymmetric angles and the contemporary edge they will bring to the space. KingsHaven and Jean Stoffer Design collaborated to also plan a pair of Charing Round Curved Arm Sconces to be installed in the butler’s pantry of the show house.
The KingsHaven Bond Street Pendant will be showcased in the center of the master bathroom, designed by Laura Zender Design. “My inspiration for the homeowner was to create a master bathroom filled with modern day luxuries, yet in a classic style that will stand the test of time. The Bond Street Pendant was chosen as the perfect punctuation for the space, with its clean boxy shape echoing the ever-enduring subway tile design and the hand-forged black iron finish so at home in this historic mansion,” said Zender. The pendant was designed by KingsHaven to be reminiscent of London’s West End Bond Street, where elegance and cutting-edge design are the norm.
Wylonis’ design book, “At Home with KingsHaven: Estates, Interiors, Landscapes,” will be displayed and available for purchase at the show house. KingsHaven will donate 100% of the book sale proceeds to Project EAT.
