GOOD ANIMAL and KARICE COLLABORATE ON CUSTOM LIGHTING 1024 768 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

Good Animal, Karice Enterprises collaborate to create Custom Design Pendant Lights

In December 2014, Karice was approached by Vancouver Lighting Designer, Hesam Ghaemi to collaborate with him on a new custom lighting installation for the new Earls to be built at Mall Millennia in Orlando, Florida, USA.  Hesam had a new idea for custom design pendant lights.

Two lighting designs were quoted to Good Animal in February of 2015.  Only one of Hesam’s lighting designs was selected by the Earls Design Team to be used in their new project in Orlando.

Shortly thereafter, the project was awarded to Good Animal to build fifteen new custom designed pendant lights for the new location in Orlando.  Karice was contracted by Good Animal to further design and craft the pendant lights, and to bring Hesam’s vision to life.


Karice immediately went to work to prepare the shop drawings for the project.  Round four shop drawings were approved by Earls in the fall of 2015.  In December, Karice began the process of drafting the mechanical construction drawings.  Production began shortly thereafter.

Fifteen custom design pendant luminaires were crafted by the team at Karice for the new project.  Design challenges included the sloped ceiling that the lights were to be mounted to.  An approximate angle was provided by architects.  Using this angle Karice designed a two piece canopy that was sloped as well as adjustable.  Site conditions are never what they seem, so  this was calculated into the design of the custom ceiling canopy.

Slight aesthetic design changes did occur along the way.  The back metal diffusers were originally black, and were changed to gold.  The height of the glass diffusers were modified, to suit the bulb that was eventually selected.  Everything had to be perfect for the new project, and perfect it was.  The final result was stunning.

Pendant Lighting Styles, Shades, Materials and Colours
Pendant Lighting Styles, Shades, Materials and Colours 150 150 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

Pendant lighting styles are very unique and diverse in the modern world. They come in many different colours such as black, white, red, blue, orange – the sky is the limit.

Pendant Lighting Styles and Shades – Wide Variety of Materials and Finishes

Pendant lights are incredibly versatile and stylish lighting fixtures that work well with most interior spaces. For one, pendant light shades come in different materials and finishes. At Karice, we stick to things like copper, silver, iron, brass, glass… and avoid things like cotton, polyester, etc as we design and build pendants for commercial and retail spaces as opposed to residential spaces.

Popular Fabric Pendant Shades VS Treated Wood and Metal

Some popular fabric pendant shades can also be made out of linen, burlap, hemp, jute and rattan and paired with wood or metal panels. At Karice we prefer a more polished, professional and sleek look and feel so we may opt to design a shade of wood and metal – and omit the fabric.

Fabric Shades for Residential Dwellings – We Focus on Metals for Businesses and Professional Establishments

Fabric shades are more suited for residential dwellings in the living room or bedroom. Since we are a custom manufacturer and metalwork outfit, our products are more tailored for business owners of restaurants or establishments where an atmosphere for the public needs to be created.

We are mentioning fabric here because we are very passionate about what we do and know that once you hire us for your project you will be glad you didn’t choose fabric! Our award winning designer really knows his stuff.

Pendant Lighting is Soft, Diffused and Striking – We Carefully Design Based on Where Your Lights Will be Installed

Our pendant lighting styles provide soft, diffused lighting without any harsh glare as we carefully take everything into consideration, including where the lighting will be placed.

Glass Pendant Shades for Elegance and to Open a Room Up – Clear, Frosted, Tinted, Etched, Any Style, Any Way

Glass pendant shades can add a touch of elegance and open a room up because they are see through and airy in appearance. Different treatments like frosted, tiffany style and tinted can create a beautiful look. Metal pendant shades also act as statement pieces and can be polished chrome, oil-rubbed bronze, brushed or glossed nickel, black iron finish or anything else that you would like. We do it all and believe nothing is impossible!

Benefits of Ordering Pendant Lighting from a Custom Lighting Manufacturer Rather Than Amazon, Home Depot, IKEA, Costco

Pendant lights of various colours, materials and styles may be found at Amazon, Costco, Home Depot and IKEA, but your choices are limited to what they currently have in stock. One model may have the perfect design but the wrong colour. Another might be in the right colour but in a style that doesn’t match the space where it will be installed.

The bottom line here though is that these stores are awesome for homes and small offices. In restaurants, retail chains, hotels or upscale environments, you need a custom manufacturer to create a look that is perfect and professional for you and your patrons.

Choose a Custom Lighting Manufacturer Over a Retail Store for Quality, Durability, Design and Reliability

With custom lighting manufacturers, pendant lights can be made in the exact colour, style and material that you are looking for. They are also much more high end and “finished”. Hiring a custom manufacturer will save you time and money in the long run because instead of browsing through countless models in retail stores, you have the freedom to create something truly custom that will match your space.

At Karice we build things to last too, so they will last for many years to come. Compared to cheap options, that could be embarrassing, we ensure you that our work has high quality craftsmanship and has been engineered correctly.

Order Modern Pendant Lighting for Your Business – Kitchen, Kitchen Island, Lobby, Entrance or any Room You’d Like to Spice Up

The design flexibility of modern pendant lighting makes it ideal for kitchen, lobby, entrance or any room. Pendant lighting doesn’t take up much room so lights can be suspended just about anywhere. For a chique and minimalist style, you may want to consider pendant lighting in an open room where they can act as a focal point. Pendant lights can be made in many different shapes and sizes too, in order to match your space.
