About Illuminations Lighting Design
Just as the dimmer slide taught us that there is more to light than simply ON or OFF, Illuminations Lighting Design has shown the world the endless variation, the enchanting spectrums, the infinite gradations of light that can be painted across the wide canvas that stretches between night and day.
In 2004, Chris Estes (left) began his tenure at Illuminations Lighting Design. And, in 2012, Shawn Findley (right) was brought on to be the new company Master Electrician. While working together, they began brainstorming ideas for their future and how to change the face of the highly regarded Illuminations Lighting Design. In 2016, after brokering a deal with the founder, Tom Kretzschmar, Estes and Findley entered into a 4-year succession plan as partners to ultimately take 100% ownership of the business. On December 31st, 2019, Estes and Findley were able to finalize the transaction and started the new year 2020 as sole owners of the business.
With an updated logo, freshly painted building, and a renewed energy, Estes and Findley will continue to maintain the well-established brand, while seeking out new opportunities in both the residential and commercial electrical contracting worlds. With two Master Electricians at the helm, the future is bright!
A typical Illuminations design is one where every painting, armoire, wall sconce, chandelier, recessed light and landscape light works in harmony to create a pleasant, functional and stimulating environment. Flexible enough to adapt to your daily needs, yet sensitive enough to set the most delicate mood.
