  • It took a small, routine decision for the Regent Collection, our newest line of chandeliers and pendants, to really come together in its final form.

  • Macaroni necklaces, hand-drawn crayon cards, a handful of weeds presented in a crude little bouquet—these are some of the ways that even as children we try to show our appreciation to our mothers. As we get older, the gifts we give our mother will change, but the impulse stays the same. Will we ever be able to truly show our mothers what they mean to us?
