Our lighting and décor expert Kim Smith has had a busy start to 2020 with an exciting project involving lighting and décor installations at Fire & Vine, Pietermaritzburg’s newest fine dining restaurant, located at the trendy Athlone Circle.
Says Kim, “I was given a blank slate and the vision of what Fire & Vine wished to achieve in terms of customer experience and I was thoroughly inspired! The light fixtures we chose are molecule glass fittings – hand blown glass fittings with dimples and indentations, to represent the movement of flames; producing diffused light to create a warm and inviting ambience”.
One of the priorities was to identify the effects and colour rendering created by the lights at night time which meant Kim spent many late nights on site ensuring the light fixtures were placed correctly to disperse the light and effects “evenly” and identifying dark or dead spots– all in pursuit of ensuring a unique dining experience at Fire & Vine.
Hall’s Lights also created custom light mounts with wine barrels to match the theme of the restaurant and its impressive wine cellar. Kim offered her expertise and her critical ‘design eye’ in editing – an essential part of ensuring that a space is not over styled and busy.
Besides lighting, Hall’s Retail supplied paints, adhesives and a range of other products to the team on the ground at the Fire & Vine.
Says Kim, “ We are extremely happy to be part of this exciting venture and we wish Fire & Vine all the success in the world.”
At Hall’s Lights we stock the latest and trendiest lighting fixtures, accessories, wallpapers, decorative coatings and finishes, and pretty much everything else you would need to tackle any decorating project.
