Sure, Denney Lighting & Design has been a household word among local contractors since 1985. But the fact is, the family-owned-and-operated company has a beautiful 2,200 sq. ft. lighting showroom in Millsboro whose discovery has been a happy accident for literally thousands of customers both indigenous and just passing through.

The company elegantly showcases a beautiful selection of the finest lighting fixtures and lamps on the market, with American Lighting Association-certified lighting consultants on hand to assist you in all aspects of lighting and fan design for your home.

Denney Lighting & Design represents hundreds of manufacturers and offers a wide selection of home products to choose from, including lighting strategies (ranging from chandeliers, task lighting and accent lighting to bath lighting and outdoor lighting), paddle fans (from such top names as Emerson, Fanimation and Quorum), table lamps, floor lamps, select furniture pieces, home-décor accessories, shades, bulbs, controls and yes, even artwork — all designed to perfectly complement your unique sense of domestic style.

What follows is just a tasty sampling of selections available at the Sussex County lighting & home-décor emporium, from Denney’s own Karen McCormick.
Crystorama’s Hampton drum pendant brings glamour to your home in clean lines and unfussy details. The sheer gold organza shade encases the brushed-antique-brass eight-light chandelier, which is accented by champagne Etruscan crystal droplets. This eye-catching focal piece would be lovely in both traditional and transitional spaces. It’s available in a variety of sizes, as well as a chrome and white sheer color series.

Hinkley’s Daphne features contemporary pocket-style bubble-art glass set against a sleek raceway back plate in chrome, brushed-nickel or brushed-bronze finishes. The etched bottom lens conceals the light source. This item functions especially well over a vanity, using three 60w halogen lamps for clean, bright light, which is not only aesthetically pleasing but perfect for grooming. The bubble glass is a natural for a beach-inspired bathroom.

The scenic is 35x47 textured giclée canvas framed in whitewashed and weathered wood, double-matted, without glass. It is called Summer Reading by Karen Hollingsworth.

From Emerson’s Tommy Bahama “Bahama Breezes,” this beautiful 52” fan, shown in antique-pewter housing with antique-stained wicker blades, boasts a quiet, comfortable airflow of 5755 cubic feet per minute with its energy-efficient K55XL motor. It can be used indoors or outdoors. Paired with an Emerson handheld remote, you’ll never have to leave your chair to adjust your fan speed or dim your lighting again. Optional light fixtures are available.

Hinkley’s Zelda has a striking mid-century silhouette featuring spheres that increase in size as they descend from the top loop, creating an elegant, seamless center column. The sleek rectangular bowed arms support tapered, etched-glass shades perched on a hemisphere cup, adding vintage appeal. Shown here in polished nickel, this fixture’s clean lines and interesting curves represent a break from traditional styling concepts, embracing a somewhat more transitional feel. It works great as a dining chandelier, of course, especially within the context of a refined nautical décor scheme. It can also be an eye-catching part of a living area, with a fixture family that may include matching pendants, sconces and other variations.

Quoizel’s New England three-light mini-chandelier is a perfect solution for smaller dining spaces, like breakfast nooks, and combination living spaces, like beach condos. The brushed-nickel finish features well-designed details that showcase the acid-etched white glass shades, offering diffused and flattering dining light. Coordinating mini-pendants are also available, to pull your entire dining and kitchen spaces together effortlessly. Perfect for those who love nautical styling.
