"Having discovered and fallen in love with Fortuny lighting while on a recent trip to Venice, but unsure of the reliability of shipping, customs procedures, etc. imagine our delight to discover Luminoso Design right here in Calgary. We were welcomed by Donna to her beautiful home where she shared a myriad of lighting choices and a great deal of expert advice. Once we had made our decision, we simply allowed Donna to handle everything on our behalf. Lo and behold, 3 weeks later our superb piece of Fortuny craftsmanship arrived safe & sound with no hint of stress for us. As we were waiting for our new house to be completed, we did not install our light immediately. After 4 months, we were ready. Donna and Peter were there to assist us with minimal delay. We cannot overstate the quality of service provided by Donna and would highly recommend anyone considering a Fortuny light to contact Luminoso Design with complete confidence. Thankyou for your tremendous service!"

"Thanks to Donna Shannon of Luminoso Design I am the proud owner of a beautiful Scudo Saraceno Fortuny Silk Lamp. As you enter my modern house you are immediately captivated by the stunning light over my dining room table. The soft colour of the shade brings together my traditional Queen Anne cherry suite with the modern architecture of the house. The lamp itself makes it clear what finishing touches are needed to bring this room completely together! Donna worked with me to ensure that I choose the best size lamp for the room. Without her expertise, I would have underestimated the importance of this choice. She simplified the many options to get it exactly right for me, all within my budget. The superb packaging and speedy delivery added to my grand experience. I had not realized what a dramatic difference one lighting fixture could make to the whole house. Thank you, Donna!"

"We choose to order our Fortuny lamps from Luminoso Design in Calgary, Canada as they beat the pricing from all of the New York dealers. They were organized, efficient and kept an extremely close eye on our shipping. I did not have to deal with customs or cartage and the lamps arrived on our doorstep in 3 weeks in perfect shape. We ordered 3 lamps and each was more spectacular than the last. I have wanted a Fortuny lamp since I first saw one decades ago and Donna made a dream come true quickly and easily."

"After moving to a new flat with a completely different layout I wanted another Fortuny lamp. I had purchased a Fortuny shade a few years ago yet being unable to find the information, I googled and contacted Luminoso Design.
When I realized that I was about to buy Italian lights from a representative of the line in Canada, it felt odd at first. Because I had established a good relationship and clear communication with Donna, I decided to go forward with my order through Luminoso Design. I never regretted the decision! She not only helped me with tips about deciding which model would go best for the room size she also, thereafter, kept me informed at every step of purchasing/shipping and found solutions to get the lamps delivered before the holidays.
The lamps were drop shipped directly to our address. More and better service than I even expected! I will most definitely go back to her on any future purchases. I LOVE my "Rolls Royce" shades (as my Mom calls them) and am sure to get another one should I move to a bigger place. I feel happy and lucky that I chose to order through Luminoso Design in Canada, I will reorder from her again without thinking twice!"

"The Style of Fortuny light that I wanted was not going to work in the space. Donna helped me sift through the myriad of options to find the model that was perfect. It has taken my massage studio from and calm, cozy place to a meditative sanctuary. My clients LOVE it! For the daunting task of ordering and importing that I thought would take months, Donna handled it easily and quickly. Our light arrived in 3 weeks! She is a professional that knows what she is doing. She made the experience fun, exciting and enjoyable, the exact way buying an exquisite piece of ART should be!"
