New Fresh Classic: Mark D. Sikes for Hudson Valley Lighting


The Fall 2018 High Point Market began yesterday, and even though my fabulous mother retired last week after decades of  hard work, I thought it was a *little* early to cash in on her free time for me to make the trip to North Carolina. Maybe I’ll finally go next spring.

Anywho! For those designers who can’t be there, lots of vendors still send out sneak peeks of the new lines they will be debuting.

One line I’m SUPER excited to start using is Hudson Valley Lighting’s new collaboration with Mark D. Sikes. It’s called “Classics,” and I’m all about fresh classic — aka new traditional or “neo-trad” — design!

Everybody knows Mark. He’s all about updated twists on American classics, blue & white, hand-block print fabrics, and natural textures. Basically, if New England and California design hooked up, Mark would be their love child.

This isn’t the first time I’ve written about Hudson Valley Lighting. HVL has always had a nice product, but there was a time when it was, well, a little staid, if you know what I mean. It was a great go-to for good quality traditional lighting at a reasonable price. But in the last year or so — Wow! — the company is just hitting one home run after another. They still have the traditional offerings, but the modern and updated classics are just so exciting.


Some of my favorites from Mark’s new lighting line. I have a couple of these earmarked for projects already!

Y’all may remember that I used Hudson Valley Lighting (this amazing chandelier, these sconces, and this flush mount) in my Ultimate She-Shed for the Spring 2018 One Room Challenge.

Any favorites of yours? I think those blue pendants are crazy good, IMO.


‘TIl next Saturday!

  1. I am bummed not to be at High Point too (major FOMO over here), but HVLs debut there last spring was a revelation. This new collection is equally exciting. I love the pendants, but that floor lamp is also looking very useful! Between two chairs in a small New England living room…am I right?

    1. Exactly … I’m thinking my soon-to-be keeping room! I may be able to go next spring — will you show me around?

    2. I love these new designs and that gorgeous blue. Just wish he made a flush or semi-flush mount option for hallways and laundry rooms!

      1. There’s the Glass No. 1, which I actually really love. But it’s definitely on the more formal side.
