Hilton Santa Barbara Beach Resort - Hammerton Contract

Hilton Santa Barbara Beach Resort

For this recent remodel of the former Fess Parker hotel, Los Angeles-based interior design firm Atwater Inc. Studio was tasked with creating an elegant, timeless 'California beach-casual' style. “We wanted guests to walk in and be awed,” Principal Stina Funch explains.

To help bring this aesthetic to life, Atwater inc. elected to feature Hammerton’s distinctive Gem blown glass shades in a variety of fixture styles throughout the property. LED-lit Gem starbursts in the main conference hall evoke sea urchins while casting dramatic shadows on the ceiling above. In other fixtures, Gems are reminiscent of drying grapes from the hotel’s own vineyard. “Hammerton lighting is the pièce de résistance that makes the whole project come alive,” adds Stina. “They offer singular design value with affordable fixtures that elevate a variety of spaces.”
