a monthly round-up of the world's best interiors and design stories
Live. Anywhere. Inc lighting is a fine living collection of "certified patent pending" elegant table lamps that are cordless, rechargeable and intended for use indoors and out.
Designed and fabricated by Linda Allen, her vision for these "high performance" couture table lamps revolutionize the way people think about and use lighting as the perfect compliment to an indoor/outdoor living space without the constraint of a cord and plug!
Linda found that many of the components of the product she envisioned had to be developed and engineered. For over two years, Linda worked with engineers and light bulb vendors customizing and manufacturing the components that did not yet exist. Now, this collection has just launched in design showrooms nationwide in the United States, and in Europe.
Linda Allen earned her bachelor's degree in Environmental Design with a focus on lighting. She has apprenticed with several world renowned lighting and interior design firms including Walt Disney Imagineering, where she designed story-themed fixtures for a host of projects including Disneyland's California Adventure and Toyko Disney Seas.
The Live. Anywhere collection is the fusion of Linda's multi-faceted Interior Design background with her passion for lighting. The fixtures fill a "void in the market". Before, Live. Anywhere fine living, rechargeable indoor/outdoor table lamps did not exist. The development of the Live. Anywhere collection has been an amazing journey for Linda which is just beginning. Her passion and determination, despite being told many times that "it can't be done", results in the possibility of a more flexible lifestyle with an outdoor rated 8 watt LED bulb that emits approximately 55 watts of warm light. No need to search for the nearest outlet with the Live. Anywhere collection! www.liveanywhereinc.com
