C hoosing the right lamping from among the vast array of options available can present both challenges and opportunities. With lighting technology in rapid flux, the user has many factors to weigh in selecting lamping: up-front cost, energy costs over time, aesthetics, performance, maintenance, reliability, availability, and other important factors, including personal preference. Crenshaw has spent years developing an understanding for what works, what looks good, and what is needed to engineer unique solutions for custom lighting. As a result we have developed a stable of favorites that we use regularly. At the same time, we have worked with and listed fixtures using nearly every kind of lamping technology on the market. Regardless of the technology, our benchmarks remain the same: reliability, beauty, value, availability, and functionality. Read more about the most widely used categories below:
