Leanne Ford: Queen of Light Fixtures

It’s no secret that Leanne Ford knows a thing or two about lighting. You may have heard that in February 2019, she launched a 30-piece lighting collection for Target. And if you watched Season 1 of Restored by the Fords, then you’ve already seen what she can do. Leanne Ford: Queen of Light Fixtures is back at it again in Season 2. Here’s a peek at what’s to come.

Home Jewelry

Leanne frequently compares lighting to jewelry used to accessorize an outfit. In this traditional Victorian home, Leanne relied heavily on lighting fixtures to give every room a "punch" of modernism.

The Pièce de Résistance

When the homeowners are professional glass blowers, it’s only right that their work is showcased throughout their home! In this case, Leanne asked Janine and Drew to create this custom piece to hang over their kitchen island.

A-Tisket, A-Basket

Leanne’s goal with this Spanish-style home was to create a vacation-like vibe throughout. One way she accomplished this? A big ol’ basket light over the dining room table.

Mid-Century Mobile

This 2-level family room needed a focal point-worthy light fixture. Artist Sarah Warda created this oversized mobile described by Leanne as a "full, large, take-up-some-real-estate-in-your-eyeballs" light. Couldn't have said it better myself!

Oh Mylant-ern!

This oversized lantern is the definition of light, bright, and airy.

Simple Sculptures

Simple, clear, and absolutely gorgeous, these lighting fixtures were hand-blown by Vessel Studio Glass in Pittsburgh, PA.

Going Global

Don't you just love how the globe-shaped lighting fixture complements the dining chairs? It's as if they were made for each other!

Not Your Grandma's Dining Room

One way to freshen up a Victorian home? A super modern chandelier!

The Limelight

While the rest of the dining room is very simple, this lighting fixture adds a bit of spice and personality to the overall space.

Size Matters

These big and bold pendant lights perfectly complement the slate floors and concrete countertops Leanne and Steve used to transform a 1970s contemporary house into a modern, ski lodge-influenced home.

Outside In

Leanne used outdoor sconces in several places throughout this home as a fun way to add a touch of rustic and mid-century modern.

Something Old, Something New

How does one modernize a 100-year-old cottage without losing its storybook charm? By mixing the old with the new. These lights Leanne chose for the kitchen are modern, but a shine a light on the kitchen’s vintage details.

Warehouse Lighting

The lights featured on either side of the bed were warehouse lights Steve had been saving until the right opportunity came along. With a fresh coat of paint, Leanne turned them into bedside lights for Steve's industrial and modern loft.

Sputnik Style

You can never go wrong with a Sputnik chandelier! Leanne utilized the iconic light fixture in Steve’s living room, where it really complements the industrial warehouse vibe.

Line of Light

For Steve’s kitchen, Leanne used these simple pendant lights over the island. It’s hard not to appreciate how they perfectly align with the lighting fixture in the living room.

All in the Family

The kitchen floor is the true star of this renovation but how about some love for the light fixtures? Leanne tied the newly-open floor plan together by using lights that look related to each other without being too matchy-matchy.

Swing from the Chandelier

This chandelier is quite different from many of Leanne’s lighting selections but makes sense in a home where modern touches meet Victorian frill.

Island Lights

The extra long island in this grey galley kitchen is perfectly complemented by the black pendant lighting overhead.

Best of Both Worlds

This home is in the country, so Leanne wanted to honor that but also incorporate some modern touches. This light fixture paired with the gorgeous ceiling is a great example of how she brought both worlds together.

Light, Bright, and Airy!

By choosing a see-through light fixture, the view of the outdoors isn’t interrupted. Instead, natural light and color come through, adding to Leanne’s light, bright, and airy aesthetic.
