(Welcome to Tiffany from Minneapolis, a blogger trying out for a spot on the Re-Nest editorial team. Enjoy!)

Not all light fixtures are created equal. The hard-working creatives at Varaluz have designed a wide array of lighting fixture collections including modern, rustic, elegant, fun, young, and traditional fixtures that go above and beyond design principles. What they don't tell you up front is that these fixtures are made from recycled and reclaimed materials and many of the items are still hand-forged by artisans. From modern pinwheel lamps to fun glass bubble wall fixtures, these lamps range from elegant to downright funky with an eco-friendly twist.

Their top eco-attributes include:

  1. Remnant Stones
  2. Recycled Glass
  3. Recycled Steel
  4. Reclaimed Wood
  5. Hand-Forged by Artisans

These pieces are made in the Philippines by generational iron workers, so each piece is unique. The company actively invests in the local community. Their goal is to provide secure long-term jobs and stability to the areas that they work throughout the Philippines. In essence their 'illuminated' business model is to not only create Fair Trade but also successful and stable communities. So this company has a social conscience, environmental awareness, and beautiful products all in one! Their fixtures vary in price based on style and location and are available through North America. The average range is from $100 - $350 for a large fixture.

So whatever your style, there is an accent feature just waiting to light up the room! Check out more here.

Thanks, Tiffany!
