Corona Del Mar State Beach

Featured Project: 1231 Dolphin Terrace

Back in 2013, ADG Lighting had the privilege of designing and fabricating custom lighting on a custom home being re-built on the Irvine Terrace Bluff in Corona del Mar, a beautiful neighborhood located in Orange County, California. With views of Balboa Island, Newport Harbor, and Catalina Island, this 6,200 square foot estate was everything you could imagine in a coastal luxury estate.

Currently on the market for $15.5 million by Tim Smith of Coldwell Banker Previews International, the immaculate coastal estate owned by ex-Angels outfielder Gary Matthews Jr. was created by architect Carlton Graham of Graham Architecture and built by Steve Davidson Construction and Tom Waters. The home was designed in collaboration with Michael Fullen Design Group.

Custom lighting is key to the unique value of a home. If you just pick decorative sconces, pendants and lanterns out of a catalog then they are no different than the house next door. But truly inspired projects that yield high dollars have custom lighting fabricators like ADG Lighting that work directly with the architects and designers.

The team of industrial designers, architectural designers and fabricators under the direction of Gerald Olesker have worked with Michael Fullen for many years. Carlton Graham is currently working with Olesker on several other spec homes in Newport Bay.

Lighting Designer Rosemarie Allure has known the team from ADG for 18 years and collaborates as needed with fabricators alike. To get this custom ceiling light just right in the kitchen, the team looked at Mondrian paintings and evaluated the size and volume of the space. Looking at the kitchen island and finishes, ADG worked with Michael Fullen Designs to create a custom coco bronze.

Boasting four bedrooms and five bathrooms, the property sits on a third of an acre. You can view the custom light fixtures (including the custom designed room filled with mementos from Matthews’ baseball career) throughout the home designed and manufactured by ADG Lighting.

Premier LA Lighting Firm Brings Artistic Vision to Four Diamond Wisconsin Hotel


Los Angeles – December 2, 2015 – Four Diamond boutique hotel Delafield Hotel has enlisted the expertise of leading Los Angeles based firm ADG Lighting for the renovation of their grand ballroom.

Design firm Paper Dolls Interiors has developed a key relationship with ADG to design and develop the decorative lighting for the hotel. ADG Lighting has been tasked with the custom design, manufacturing, and engineering of a floating ring chandelier, measuring 93 inches in diameter. A series of the chandeliers will be placed in the grand ballroom, a spacious area featuring rich cherry columns.

“We are thrilled at the opportunity to work on one of the best hotels in Wisconsin,” said Gerald Olesker, CEO and founder of ADG Lighting. “The vintage beauty of the property is undeniable.
