Like stars, chandeliers are sparkly, hang high above your head, and eventually collapse into black holes that will suck up most of the dinner table. Replace your chandelier before it goes nova with today's Groupon: for $39, you get $79 toward lighting fixtures, lamps, mirrors, and fans at Passion Lighting in Grapevine.
Passion Lighting showcases 9,000 square feet of solar simulation options, and their knowledgeable staff and Certified Lighting Consultant assist customers in navigating the massive stock of lamps and fixtures. Inside the expansive showroom, illumination aficionados will find lighting options such as the oil-rubbed bronze floor lamp ($218), which efficiently brightens residential spaces, or the pink-pig table lamp ($24), which provides a stylish safeguard against any closet-dwelling monster that was traumatized by reading Charlotte's Web as a child. A decorative oro sconce ($216) adorns hallways and rooms with elegance and a warm glow, and the Lizette ceiling fan's ($89.91) dark walnut blades work to discourage raucous party guests from pogo-sticking in living rooms.
Teeming with precisely organized lighting fixtures, Passion Lighting's 9,000-square-foot retail show room—a multiple-year finalist of Residential Lighting magazine’s Showroom of the Year award—is designed to demystify home lighting and interior design for the everyday customer. Owner Bruce Paul—one of only 125 ALA-certified lighting consultants in the nation—uses his years of illumination expertise to help customers solve their interior-design conundrums. In addition to his company’s website, Paul maintains the video blog LightingGourmet.com, where he doles out expert advice on household lighting strategies and irresistible video clips of kittens installing solar panels.
