Lightovation Wrap-Up – Dallas Market

And just like that we are back from market! It was an exciting week of meeting customers, showing new products and getting to live the Z-Life. We had a great time debuting our new product line as well as catching up with our clients and sales team. Check out some of the highlights below!

Lightovation is just as much a family celebration as it is a business celebration. At Z-Lite we prize the family values that have rooted themselves deeply into our business culture. It takes a lot of people to make our show go off with a hitch. We would like to take a moment to thank each and every team member who made our show such a success. Without all of you Z-Lite would not be the company it is today!

“What a great start to the year! Z-Lite had an exciting market full of new product releases for 2018! It was absolutely wonderful to see all of our customers and sales reps from across the country. A big thank you to the whole Z-Lite team and the Sales Reps for their continuous hard work! We are all looking forward to another successful year!” -Stephanie Antonissen, Executive Administration

“Kudos to our amazing sales team! I am always so impressed with how diligent and considerate our amazing reps are. It is always such a pleasure getting to work with them during Lightovation.” – Laura McSloy, General Manager of Operations

A special thank you to Timm Stumm for putting the hard work in to design our beautiful showroom. Without your incredible hard work and determination to make our showroom standout we could not have had the successful show we did! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Of course, new product is one of the most fun and exciting parts of coming to Lightovation. From getting to see everyone else’s new and inspired designs and getting to show off our own, it certainly is an exciting time! Some of our fan favourites include:

Bold geometric shapes nested within themselves inspire the modern design of the Euclid collection. Uniquely layered parallelograms and cubes, encapsulate the inner candelabra. Unique dual finishes of Chrome meshed with Black, or Olde Brass meshed with Bronze complete this stunning collection.


Sleek and contemporary describe the Luttrell collection of outdoor fixtures. It’s minimalistic inspired, duel rectangular design shows that less is indeed sometimes more, finishes include Silver or Black. All fixtures include the latest in long life LED energy saving technology.


A Special Note from our President, Scott Zimmer…

“I just wanted to take the time to thank each and every one of our customers, sales reps and team for making our 2018 January debut such a tremendous success. It is because of your support that we are able to continue to bring you the best and brightest the lighting industry has to offer.”

Scott Zimmer, President Z-Lite

Product Spotlight Series: Sconces

In our product spotlight series, we will take a look at the various fixtures that Z-Lite has to offer and talk about how to work them into your decor – no matter your style. In our first spotlight, we’ll be discussing sconces.

Sconces are wall mounted light fixtures, used to create ambient light or as accent lighting wherever they are used. Sconces are commonly used in bathrooms, hallways, stairwells, or even by a fireplace. Due to their size and subtlety, they are very versatile fixtures.

When planning where a sconce should go in a home, the general rule is that the fixture should be five feet from the ground if you have 8 foot ceilings. As stated before, sconces aren’t meant to be a primary source of light, but rather as accent lighting or for ambient light.

For some inspiration, see our examples below.




Pictured here is the modern-inspired 616-1S-BN from the Tian family. It brings a touch of contemporary flair and really helps complete the look of the room.

Pictured here is the 446-2S- BZGD from the Geist family. Note how the style is modern, but due to the finishes on the fixture, a more transitional look is achieved, emphasizing the warm tones of the fire place.

Pictured here is the 3001-3SCH, from the Czarina family. Its ultra modern finish and elegant crystal design adds a touch of class to the area.

These are just a few of many ways to incorporate a scone into your home. Don’t be afraid to experiment and find a way that truly works for you and your home.
