Fox Run 13

Well acclaimed Colorado firm, David Johnston Architects, is known for sourcing materials and partners as locally as possible. They keep a small, personalized radius for their work, focusing on the Aspen, Colorado area where outdoor pursuits are aplenty. DJA believes every home should be a reflection of those who reside within its walls.

Fox Run 13 is a contemporary spin on a traditional ranch-style house, nestled among three side of mountains and the Roaring Fork River. Combining outdoor aesthetics and the importance of livability, DJA puts emphasis on the details. Large floor-to-ceiling windows bring the rolling blue peaks up close and personal, and contribute to the warm, earthy glow of the interior.

During the twilight hour, Niche’s Pharos Pendants in Gray glow while providing an organic transition between the dusking sky outside, and the timbered surfaces inside.

In the company of daylight, our Pharos Pendants unify the metallic finishes of the counter with the remaining sun-speckled space.

European Hampton Villa

The tradition of the summer resort is carried on by this expansive 8,000 square foot home recently constructed by Perello Custom Home Builders. One of Eastern Long Island’s renowned construction and design firms, they cater to the high standards required of the Hamptons and this re-envisioned villa is no exception.

With a large emphasis on outdoor living, the common room and patio area leading to the pool are seamlessly combined with large glass doors, hardwood flooring, and Southwestern-inspired motifs.

Amongst the multiple balconies, skylights and fireplaces, our Minaret Pendants in Crystal find their place in the serenity of the kitchen. The bright white walls are balanced with the light gray marble countertops and wall paneling. Sunlight pours in from all sides, dancing between floor, counter and our glistening pendants.

Is it too late for vacation? While you’re daydreaming about next summer, shop our Minaret Pendants too!

Color of the Day: Baked Apple

PantoneBanner

Perfectly aligned with autumn and the season’s cuisine, Pantone’s color of the day for November 12th is Baked Apple! Pantone “Colorstrologist” Michele Bernhardt describes Baked Apple as “determined, alluring, and interesting.” While our products are certainly “baked” hot and fresh everyday in our factory, here at Niche we’re making pendants, not pies. We call this signature glass Crimson!

The deep red of this transparent glass is a designer’s seduction! Rich saturated color is both eerily captivating yet playfully enchanting. For a splash of colorful restaurant mood lighting, carefully match Crimson pendants with a red accent wall over a counter or bar.

Dare to be different! Add a burst of Crimson to an otherwise neutral-toned room. This modern kitchen relies on a dramatic hue to draw attention to the gathering space.

R•Home Magazine Feature!

R•Home & Garden is an award-winning publication from Richmond, Virginia that highlights new construction, renovation and restoration projects, as well as accessories for the home and ideas for entertaining.  Niche’s pendants were featured in their recent fall issue!

The excerpt entitled, “What’s Hot” shows bold-colored home decor, furniture and appliances. Three of Niche’s Crystalline Pendants found themselves in the mix - the Axia in Chartreuse, the Calla in Rose, and the Delinea in Condesa.  Encouraging “fun and colorful” accessories, Niche’s bold and bright characteristics fit this bill perfectly.

A Pop of Plum!

Ryan Samuelson of rStudio Design creates a refined indoor living space by adding a touch of the outdoors. The sitting room includes a lamp stand constructed from a piece of driftwood, found on the eastern shore of Long Island.

Samuelson has included a Niche Solitaire Pendant in Plum that suspends off the driftwood stand to create a very unique and refreshing alternative to hanging our pendants.

The inclusion of both modern and rustic details create an unexpected and eclectically inspired room. Samuelson achieves this look by pairing natural wooden elements with the shiny chrome from both the white Barcelona Chairs and glass table.
