At its first Fall High Point Market, Hudson Valley Lighting Group – which opened a 11,000-sq.-ft. showroom in Market Square in High Point which featured the launch of celebrated interior designer Corey Damen Jenkins’ lighting line – will unveil an original collection of 36 styles with renowned interior designer Mark D. Sikes under the Hudson Valley Lighting™ brand.
Best known for creating beautiful and timeless interiors that mix American & European, Traditional & Modern, and New & Old sensibilities, Sikes has built an international following due to his intuitive aesthetic sensibility and eye for the unexpected.
“Mark is the perfect partner for Hudson Valley Lighting. He takes traditional ideas of design and beauty and then adds the unexpected, such as a simple embellishment that changes the look and feel of an entire silhouette,” says David Littman, Founder & CEO of Hudson Valley Lighting Group. “We are thrilled to have him as a partner and are sure this collaboration will yield unprecedented success.”
Sikes began his career at Banana Republic/GAP, and 20 years later launched his interior design business. In addition to his interior design work appearing in such renowned publications as Veranda and Architectural Digest, his lifestyle blog and Instagram feed have served as an inspiration and resource for design lovers. His book, Beautiful: All-American Decorating and Timeless Style (published by Rizzoli in 2016) rose to the top of The New York Times Best Seller list. Sikes has also designed products for the home as well as his eponymous clothing brand MDS Stripes.
In addition, the Corbett Lighting® brand will be debuting a premier collection of 25 styles from award-winning, Los Angeles-based celebrity interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard. “We are thrilled to be working with Martyn,” notes Steven Nadell, President of Hudson Valley Lighting Group. “He is a design visionary who brings an original perspective and keen understanding of what it takes to create top-notch lighting that is also a work of art. His eye for glamour and grandeur made him the perfect partner for Corbett, a brand known for decadent and stunning designs.” Corbett will be exhibiting as part of the Hudson Valley Lighting Group showroom, which will also include new designs from Troy Lighting® and Mitzi™ by Hudson Valley Lighting.
Bullard is a multi-award-winning Los Angeles-based interior designer renowned for his broad range of styles and eclectic, yet sophisticated and inviting interiors.
