Karyl Pierce Paxton interview

Karyl Pierce Paxton, designer for Savoy House: 'Lighting for me is an expression of both art and architecture. Lighting is what brings visual life and illumination to a room or home'.

Karyl Pierce Paxton Experience the custom made charm of lighting and accessories. This antiquity infused collection by Karyl Pierce Paxton features an 18 step finish inspired by the Patinas, Old world colors of the French Quarter, and includes hand painted designs of art. After graduating from high school and to study art, architecture and antiques, Karyl moved to New York City and attended Parsons School of Design for advanced study in fashion design. There, she created award-winning commercial and residential interiors. Meeting the demand for her custom furniture and lighting quickly became the focus of Pierce Paxton Design Studio. Today, from New Orleans she creates products that are destined to become heirlooms.


1. What does lighting mean to you? Lighting for me is an expression of both art and architecture. Lighting is what brings visual life and illumination to a room or home. I endeavor to design and create light that speaks to the architecture and interiors in an artistic and sculptural way.

2. How do you describe your own style?

I would describe my personal style as a Neo-traditionalist. I like to bring elements that respect the past with modern expression and proportions.

3. What inspires you the most by gone era when design?

I am inspired by many, many different by gone eras depending on what I am designing for Savoy House whether it be a circa 18thc. French Tole Chandelier or a circa 19th c. Spanish colonial outdoor fixture.. Having traveled Europe and the world extensively I find my most inspiration from the grand homes, palaces and cathedrals throughout the European Union.
