Lamps Plus Brings ‘Dead To Me’ To Light

Lamps Plus products will light the set of the main character for the second season of the Netflix show “Dead to Me,” which debuts May 8.

Brandi Kalish, the show’s set decorator, used Lamps Plus lighting for season one as well.

In the award-nominated show’s first season, Kalish mounted Lamps Plus fixtures in the foyer, dining room, kitchen, bedroom and exterior of the home owned by main character Jen Harding, played by Christina Applegate. Kalish also used bar stools and a sectional sofa from Lamps Plus in the kitchen and living room.

As for season two, Kalish said, “When I’m decorating a set, I use the character in the script as direction toward what lighting, furniture and decor will be used in that environment. We always have to be mindful of the continuity of the sets, from season to season. That said, my goal is to always think deeply about the character and how that person is evolving in the story. My goal for this upcoming second season was to bring the sets alive with color, style and taste, plus give the actors every possible chance to collaborate with the set and to creatively represent the script.”

Lamps Plus founder and CEO Dennis Swanson noted, “With shelter-at-home orders, our customers are looking for entertainment while they continue to improve their homes. We know many of our customers are also fans of the acclaimed female-driven television show, Dead to Me. The Dead to Me sets created by Brandi are beautifully designed with our products adding to the nuances and the sets have really become a crucial part of the show. The main character and her family are believable because their home’s interior design makes sense for them. We’ve admired the sets created by Brandi on some of the best shows, and we’re impressed by the way she uses our products. We value our customers and we’re glad to see when talented set decorators like Brandi make spaces that take on unique and often inspiring designs.”
