Our showrooms in Victoria and Nanaimo are the only ones on Vancouver Island where you can see Alora Lighting in all its glory. We know the importance of lighting your home and are proud that you can trust us with that responsibility.
With a name that comes from the Greek for “shining light,” the Alora Lighting mission is nothing less than to shine the light of elegance into your life. While the name and style may be classical, Alora itself is a new brand in the world of lighting; launched from the vision of founder Nathan Yang. Best known for founding KUZCO Lighting in 2006, Yang introduced Alora Lighting to the world in January 2019 at the Lightovation trade show in Dallas. Where KUZCO focuses on minimalism, the goal for Alora is to complement that with a sense of classic style and elegance.
The Allure of Elegance
Elegance is one of those words that gets thrown around often. You hear it used to describe everything from a person’s gait to a mathematical theorem. Many people may not be able to define it, but most people know it when they see it. To be elegant is to possess a specific form of beauty, a beauty both in form and in function. Alora Lighting is designed from first principles to be elegant in design and beautiful in use.
Truly elegant lighting shares three important elements:
- Imagination: Elegant design doesn’t simply rehash the ideas of the past. Elegance can be inspired by the past but it always includes a fresh look at the world.
- Simplicity: Elegance is simple, it doesn’t add anything to a design for its own sake. It includes everything you need and nothing you don’t.
- Efficiency: Elegance is efficient; single design elements perform multiple functions. It makes the best use of every component, letting them work together to create a greater whole.
