If you've ever taken a selfie under your office's fluorescent bulbs, you know how important lighting can be. Leanne Ford, interior designer and co-host of Restored By The Fords
, considers it the most important part of any space. In January 2019, Target announced a collaboration with Ford to create a limited-edition Project 62
collection that takes the guesswork out of brilliant, statement-making lighting
(all at a v affordable price point starting at just $30). The entire lineup comes with bulbs and surprisingly stylish fabric-covered cords so you won't be stuck trying to source a decorative piece that fits around the fixtures. Click through to see the highlights of the collection before it hits Target's stores and website on February 10.
"I really wanted to offer oversized options, and these are, without a doubt, my favorites in the collection," Ford explains in a Target press release
. "The bigger the better. Seriously, when in doubt go for the bigger size — it will create a bigger impact in your space."
"The light bulb is just as important as the rest of the piece, especially in these open-style lights," Ford says. "That's why I was so excited to include the bulbs. We are able to [not only] help create and control the look of the bulb but also the type of light it gives off. Those are two big wins for me as a designer."
"The cord and canopy are often overlooked on lights, but why? They are just as visible as the rest of the light. Someday in the future everything may be cordless, but until then, let's just make them look good! The fabric-covered cord elevates the entire fixture," Ford notes.
"I was passionate about making these lights feeling substantial in your hand, so we used real, strong materials," Ford recalls. "Nothing feels cheap."
"[T]he domes are... a classic, simple style that works with any genre or era," Ford says. "They can lean farmhouse or industrial, mid-century or rustic. I love that."
"The fishnet light in XL is my proudest creation, as it was inspired by an old fish net I bought in Austin and turned into a light. I was excited to recreate that piece because I was slightly sad to give it away to a client," says Ford.
