Testimonials

“I looked at many systems for my curio cabinet and decided on Phantom Lighting. It is gorgeous. I like the soft indirect glow that accents the pieces without overwhelming them. I also like that the glow seems invisible as it is coming from under the molding hidden by a custom trim.
Tom and his staff are a pleasure to deal with and very creative with lighting suggestions. I never knew lighting could add such a large dimension and make such an impact. Good People. Great Products!”
Dan Goldman – A Very Satisfied Customer

Without a doubt, we would highly recommend Tom and his company.”

“I have nothing but fine things to say about Phantom Lighting Systems. Recently I asked Tom Kretzschmar if he had a good way to better illuminate my study and living room cabinets and artwork and he and his team designed and installed a wonderful system that enhanced our rooms, making them warm and inviting. We consistently get “who did the lighting?” comments from our guests. I’ve known Tom for 35 years and he has worked on my previous homes’ lighting needs with his team always being timely and professional, delivering excellent results. We’ve been very pleased and highly recommend him and Phantom.”

“I am delighted to hear that you are focusing on your Phantom Lighting Systems.   I believe in your product as much as I believe in you. Tom Kretzschmar is a man of his word. I have worked with Tom for over 22 years and he has always impressed me with his knowledge of how to make a property or house into a unique work of art. When I was creating my estate, I hired Tom to help with not only lighting my artwork but my acreage as well. He is truly an artist in his field. I believe that Tom not only takes on every project as if it is his Picasso, but always puts forth the extra detail that makes his projects stand out from all the others. I have found Tom to be not only a great businessman, but he makes a lifelong awesome friend. Truly a one of a kind man of his word.”

In working with Tom, I have found him to be extremely knowledgeable of accent lighting and he willingly shares that knowledge, educating his clients in order to make better informed decisions. Although he is the leading expert in our design/build community, Tom is very humble, approachable and has a strong desire to please his clients. His lighting products are innovative and unique. I would not hesitate to recommend Tom to anyone.”
