Custom Furniture with ADG

While our clients are familiar with our work in high-end lighting, many don’t know that we also design and manufacture custom furnishings. From rustic modern tables to custom sculptures, take a few minutes and peruse our furnishings portfolio for a glimpse into some of our work.

 

For years interior designers and landscape architects have asked our team at ADG to design and manufacture furniture. Occasional tables, chairs, chaises, outdoor patio furnishing and interior metal and wood furniture are just some of the pieces we have made over the years. Now you can enjoy our portfolio as a launching point. Also look in the past issue of 20/twenty Architectural & Beyond.


It is always a pleasure to start with a piece of trace paper and ink and listen to the needs of the project from curbside to poolside. It is always exciting to collaborate with the designers and homeowners and create beautiful furnishings. Recently a designer client asked that we create a modern hammered console and stone top. That same homeowner had us create iron slide doors, Giacometti styled bar stools along with several custom fire screens and 8’ tall antiqued iron with antiqued mirrors flanking the living room.


Always fun, and always open to suggestions. It’s just pen and ink to start. For inquiries, please call us at (818) 597-9494 or email info@adgmail.com. We ship worldwide.

Furnishing Inspiration with ADG

Our lighting design work gives us many opportunities to work on some wonderful projects. But what many of our clients don’t know if that we also provide custom furnishing and ironwork design services! We believe all buildings, no matter the size or location, deserve the attention to the architectural details, from the outside in.

Check out some of our customized furnishings. If you have a particular request, email us at info@adgmail.com or call us at (818) 597-9494.

 

A Spotlight of a Different Kind

While our daily work focuses on creating custom lighting and furnishings for our clients, we thought we’d take a different approach today, and create a different sort of spotlight if you will.

Today, we’ll focus our attention on those who make it happen everyday: the talent here at ADG.

At times we all review and look at lighting as an item you pluck off the shelf. At times we look at furniture as that item that you see when you walk into the showroom. It is selected, spec’d, and delivered to the customer, and we wait for the relaxed and wonderful smile that comes from the customer’s amazement.

“Wow, my design professional helped with that selection and it looks wonderful!” she says. However, what happens when the specialty side for designers, homeowners and hoteliers alike is customized? Teams like Architectural Detail Group and ADG Lighting take the pen and calipers in hand and begin the design process — because they hold the control with the fabrication that makes the process extra special.

What about the leap of faith to custom design and manufactured lighting and architectural furnishings? We all know the design studio of Charles and Ray Eames and furniture by the iconic Mies van der Rohe.

If you’ve seen the lighting and ornament work by Gerald Olesker and his team at ADG Eco Lighting, you know it is a sight to see. Many have likened their work to the works of Edward F. Caldwell & Co.

Here at ADG, we take pride in our work and craftsmanship. Our significant designs and inspired collections are developed from Olesker working with some of the finest and most prominent architects, designers and building owners around the globe. His works have been placed into homes designed by Marc Appleton, Gwathmey Siegel, and Robert Stern’s office.

Inspired by Michael Berman, Olesker got into the metal furniture industry when Michael suggested to Gerald that he make the MBL Shearboun table for himself. Olesker then began to fulfill orders for Berman and other designers in town for metal furniture. Each fixture and piece of furniture initially comes in a form developed by Olesker within a specific scope for the project. Certainly while designs are repeated, many of the original inspirations remain some of the most published and seen homes and projects today.

Diversity is key component of Olesker’s work. The above chandelier was a requested piece, developed for a homeowner and her prominent husband in the banking industry. Read up on what ADG customers have had to say about our work, and you’ll begin to see why Olesker and ADG are sought after in the industry. 

The below modern fixture was developed for a hospital in New Orleans. Joey Genarro, the industrial designer in charge of production at ADG, developed this fixture. It is quite the hit! ADG Lighting has had many orders for this and variations of this fixture. Eight phases of the hospital currently display this timeless piece.

Contrasting designs and fixtures are key to the successful following and modest studio approach by Olesker and Genarro. The Mid Century Mixx above and the classical iron light and copper lantern are additional examples of the pairings by ADG Lighting.

Hearst at Greystone


Leading LA Lighting Firm Infuses Style of Hearst to Greystone Mansion Showcase

ADG Lighting Partners with L’Esperance Design for Titans of Business Themed 2013 Designer Showcase 

LOS ANGELES – November 12, 2013 – ADG Lighting, a leading LA-based custom lighting firm, has joined creative forces with interior design company L’Esperance Design for the 2013 Designer Showcase at the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills.

Celebrating business titan William Randolph Hearst, the Greystone grand foyer was one of the spaces selected to honor the design taste of the media mogul. Renowned for their custom lighting work at the Hearst Castle in San Simeon, ADG Lighting selected atelier chrome fixtures and lamps that formerly sat at the Hearst estate for the showcase.1457463_644035882301375_155224688_n

“We were thrilled to work with L’Esperance Design on such an amazing and creative project,” said Gerald Olesker, Founder and CEO of ADG Lighting. “Our experience working at the Hearst Castle really inspired our thought process for the project, and we are proud to be part of the legacy being created at Greystone Mansion.”

The Greystone Mansion has been the site of countless television shows and movies such as X-Men, The Bodyguard, The Gilmore Girls, and The Social Network. The showcase celebrates design through the Titans of Business and Best of Design theme. Selected designers reinvented rooms in the spirit and taste of the chosen business titan, translating the space into works of art. Titans come from any of the following industries: Entertainment, Import/Export, Wine, New Media, Manufacturing, Banking/Finance, and Real Estate.

The space is themed out appropriately, with the influence of William Randolph Hearst as the Grand Entry’s Titan for the 2013 Greystone home tour.

The ADG Eco Lighting Atelier Chrome Collection Lamps were originally designed and manufactured for our Hearst Castle Collection. These magnificent lamps stayed at Hearst Castle for almost two years in a suite designed by Barclay Butera. They are now for sale and are seeking a good home.

The showcase runs through November 24th. For more information on ADG Lighting and the fixtures available for sale, please visit the company blog or call 818-597-9494. Additional information on the Greystone Mansion Showcase is available on the Design House International website.
