Architects Lelia Gilchrist and Larry Woodson moved to Nashville Tennessee in 1997. Their home is a modern interpretation of Nashville architecture, blending historic materials with stark contemporary design. New York based designer Kevin Dumais was brought on to compose the interior space.
In an article Interiors Magazine, Dumais describes how he created a warm environment in modern home, “I wanted to soften the lines of the architecture with different textures, materials and colors so it didn’t feel so austere.” He accomplished this by weaving in a palette of warm and cool gray tones. We love how our Pharos pendants in amber create a pop of color against subtle finishes of the bathroom. In addition, the use of slightly offset cord lengths creates a fun visual focus. Great example of contemporary bathroom lighting fixtures!

Portland’s most hotly anticipated new restaurant, Outliers Eatery opened it’s doors this past spring. The space was transformed by interior designer Ryan Withers, from a former dive bar into a classy, offbeat hotspot. Outliers is located in Portland’s West End, overlooking the Casco Bay Bridge.
The main dining room at Outliers Eatery is dotted with an array of Niche Modern’s Oculo pendants in Sapphire. The sophisticated color palette of muted blues, greens and grays creates a warm, inviting atmosphere that still feels clean and contemporary and undeniably welcoming.
The menu will change daily at Outlier’s, but we hope we get a chance to try Chef, crispy pigs ears appetizer next time were in Portland! Check out their facebook page to find out more about the Portland hotspot!

Niche was featured in the Dutchess County Economic Development Corporation’s business spotlight this week.
Here is an excerpt that describes Niche’s move from New York City to Dutchess County:
“In 2007, Niche Modern moved from New York City to Beacon, NY – a Mecca for artists and craftspeople in the Hudson River Valley. Beacon was a renowned manufacturing hub for generations but the city began a steady and devastating economic decline in the 1970s. The opening of the famed DIA: Beacon museum nearly ten years ago signaled an exciting rebirth of art, culture and commerce for the city. Niche Modern is just one of the many design companies now calling it home.
Mary and Jeremy officially set up shop – offices, home and warehouse – in a newly renovated loft. The Green Fan Co, originally used the 8,400 sq. ft. building, which was built in 1867.”
