A Conversation Piece

Meet Chisholm Clean Round. This striking—and now signature—fixture has found a home in spaces from stairwells to hallways, kitchens to gathering spots.

To understand why, let’s examine its lineage. In 2005, we launched Chisholm Hall, a lantern-inspired design from our Creative Director, Michael Amato, which was developed for a historic building in downtown Charleston. Its color-friendly nature (the original model was Wythe Blue) and open and airy box-like body (which is infinitely scalable but never overwhelming to its surroundings) made it an instant favorite with some of our favorite clients.

From there, we launched the Chisholm Clean, which kept the same emphasis on strong proportions and size but replaced the upper gallery with glass. At that point, it was clear that the modification options were limitless: conversation after conversation, commission after commission, we soon realized what our clients were already telling us: this piece was versatile, adaptable, and attractive to all.

Thus, the expanded Chisholm family was born–Chisholm Hall, Chisholm Clean, CHP (Chisholm Hang Pendant), Chisholm Passage Round, Chisholm Passage Square, and, now, Chisholm Clean Round. From flushmounts to statement pieces, all represent the way(s) in which a smart design can adapt to any space, if the vision and visionaries are all aligned.
