Swarovski Lighting’s Director of Engineering Presents Latest Lighting Trends at Dulles Electric Supply

Dulles Electric Supply invites homeowners, contractors and interior designers to meet Tim Patnode, director of engineering at Swarovski Lighting at the Annual Schonbek Weekend, Saturday, October 26. The event will be held at Dulles Electric Supply’s Sterling, VA Lighting Showroom, which showcases the largest lighting inventory in the Mid-Atlantic.

No appointment is necessary to attend, and Dulles Electric Supply encourages homeowners to take advantage of the opportunity to learn from a leader in the lighting industry.

Patnode will be on site October 26 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. at the event to discuss the latest trends in lighting, as well as answer any questions regarding custom Schonbek lighting options. Schonbek, the world’s leading manufacturer of premium crystal lighting, is a member of the Swarovski Company. Schonbek’s designers are responsible for nearly 200 patented technologies which have shaped the lighting industry.

Dulles Electric Supply is proud to feature the nation’s largest Schonbek Crsytal Gallery, and is excited to host Patnode at this annual event.

“We look forward to the Annual Schonbek Weekend each year,” said Sharina Mendoza, director of marketing at Dulles Electric Supply. “This is a great opportunity for homeowners and designers to come out and meet an industry expert whose company is responsible for many of the trends circulating in the lighting industry right now. Swarovski and Schonbek chandeliers are known for their unsurpassed quality and beauty, and we can’t wait to share our passion for these great pieces.”

The event corresponds with the Annual Schonbek Crystal Lighting Fixtures Sale. From now until October 31, all Schonbek crystal lighting fixtures in-store at Dulles Electric Supply and purchased via special order will be given a 25 percent discount.

Also on display for a limited time in Dulles Electric Supply’s Schonbek Lighting Gallery is Lenny Kravitz’s limited edition Casino Royale Chandelier. The ultra-modern interpretation of the chandelier measures more than 3.5 meters tall with flowing chains of jet black, golden teak and clear Swarovski crystals.

Attendees at the Annual Schonbek Weekend on October 26 who make a minimum purchase of $1,000 in Schonbek and Swarovski products will take home a special Swarovski gift bag. This promotion offers one gift bag per customer, while supplies last.
