Unveiling of Builder Magazine's 2011 Concept Home at International Builders' Show in Orlando

RIVERSIDE, NJ--(Marketwire - January 12, 2011) - Sea Gull Lighting, the leading manufacturer of more than 3,000 decorative and functional lighting and ceiling fan products, is pleased to announce its participation with The Builder Concept Home 2011: KB Home GreenHouse™, An Idea Home created with Martha Stewart. Sea Gull Lighting has outfitted the entire home with a wide variety of ENERGY STAR®-qualified and energy efficient, indoor and outdoor lighting fixtures and ceiling fans to show designers, contractors and consumers that style and energy savings can successfully coexist.

Additionally, the home has been recognized with a variety of efficiency certifications including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's ENERGY STAR® and WaterSense qualification, LEED for Homes Platinum status and Environments for Living Green. The home's design is influenced by Martha Stewart, one of the country's leading lifestyle experts.

"We're thrilled to participate in the KB Home GreenHouse," said Stephen Mitchel, vice president, business development/builder channel, Sea Gull Lighting. "We've been a proud lighting partner to KB Home for a number of years and we've also been a long-time ENERGY STAR partner, even earning their coveted Sustainable Partner award, so we believe this collaboration to be a natural fit. We believe in the power of green and are honored to have our products viewed among the best in this category."
