If a coastal vacation isn’t in the cards this summer, furnishing your home with products from Regina Andrew’s latest nautical-inspired lighting collection could be the next best thing.
The Wyandotte-based home décor store released a 68-piece lighting collection with Coastal Living magazine in late April. As longtime Coastal Living subscribers, Regina Andrew co-founders Carla Regina Zajac and James Andrew Slaven were eager to collaborate.
Coastal Living “is certainly one of those magazines we’ve had for years, and you’re always pulling out your favorite article or future dream house,” Zajac says.
The lighting collection offers ceramic table lamps with silhouettes favoring coral and sea urchins; wood bead and jute chandeliers; marine sconces; and other styles, with a color palette composed of oceanic blues and neutral tones such as white and ebony. As firm
believers in sustainability — the company’s warehouses and corporate offices are 100 percent solar-powered — the pair use rattan and recycled glass for some of their table lamps, and reclaimed wood for some of the chandeliers and sconces.
As metro Detroit natives, Zajac and Slaven produce work inspired in part by Michigan’s natural offerings; this collection draws on the couple’s passion for boating from their Grosse Ile home. It also reflects their time spent at seaside destinations such as Key West and Georgia’s Sea Island.
“We would like people to really picture their coastal getaway by using these products,” Slaven says.
The collection is available for purchase at reginaandrew.com.
