YLighting.com: Let There Be Cheaper Light!
Bigger is better. We got so beat up last week recommending Lighting By Gregory and then having all these negative comments about the store come in, that we are giving it another shot (btw – the comments were much appreciated).
YLighting is a recent find. A true internet business, it was started in 2001 and now boasts that it is the largest U.S. online retailer of contemporary lighting. Their aim has been to do what DWR has done for modern furniture: make it accessible and always in stock. Oh, but there is one thing YLighting does that DWR doesn’t, it keeps its prices low.
What you will find: standard and hard to find lighting, floor and table lamps, indoor and outdoor lighting, track and recessed lighting, as well as fans. Most major brands are reprsented, including cool European companies such as Flos, Foscarini and Luceplan.
And Price? Good, but didn’t blow us away.
We priced the Tolomeo classic table lamp:
YLighting – $291
Artemide – $265
DWR – $320
And the Pablo Pardo Ventana Lamp:
YLighting – $722
Pablo Designs – $750
DWR – $750
Of course, YLighting will sell itself by having everything in stock and ready to ship (heard that before?) and with lighting, this can make a huge difference. MGR
