Place Architects often re-purposes industrial products for residential applications. Stonco's Roughlyte is one example. “[It's] a fun departure from typical residential fixtures,” Johnston says. “It's even watertight, for exterior applications.” Ideal for walls or ceilings, the fixture has a heat- and shock-resistant glass globe and a die-cast cage to protect against debris when used outside. Numerous styles and sizes are available. Crescent/Stonco, 800.334.2212; www.crescentlighting.com.
