One night, over eight years ago, I was trying to watch TV at home and I had an annoying problem.
That's when a flash of inspiration hit me.
The problem was that a recessed light in my place was causing some glare. It bothered me so much, that I set out to redirect the light, or at the very least, reduce the brightness of it.
I built a crude contraption consisting of magnets, a convex mirror and some fishing line. That set the wheels of motion rolling towards what, many years later, would be developed into EzClipse – Decor for Recessed Lighting.
Although it began with the need to diffuse the light away from the television, the concept has been fine-tuned and developed over time. As we started to build on my initial idea, we realized that the product that would turn into EzClipse had so many more applications than just redirecting light. It could actually make your existing recessed lighting more appealing and allow the lights, to enhance your enjoyment of your space and home.
At the product launch during the Ottawa Home & Garden Show in March, 2015, we had our first interactions with customers, to see their reactions. With a custom built booth and our company team available to take questions, we were overwhelmed by the positivity and encouragement we received during our introduction.
To date, EzClipse has three product lines:
- Low Profile Recessed Lighting Covers: This range allows you to change the shape and colour of trim for your existing recessed lights.
- Stylish: Comparable to a flush mount lighting solution, this line offers a wider range of functionality including light diffusion and the ability to enhance or compliment your existing home decor.
- Shades: The shades line offers the most dramatic transformation to your recessed lighting covers. They can make a big statement as well as add texture and depth to any living space.
From humble beginnings to fully formed product ready for the market, EzClipse has come a long way, and we now have a wide range of options that will suit your home decor - many of which, we believe, are right in line with modern home decor and lighting trends.
It's been a long journey, and we can't wait for you to try it in your own home.
