The Google dictionary definition of testimonials is “a formal statement testifying to someone’s character and qualifications.” These usually come from customers, colleagues, or peers who have benefited from or experienced success as a result of the work you did for them. I am honored to share with you some of the testimonials and reviews I have received from my loyal clients, customers and friends.

At Phantom Lighting Systems, we’ve worked hard to develop a reputation for being the best in the business. It means a lot to us when a client takes the time to drop a note to us letting us know that they’re happy with their lighting and the service we provided to them. Any business can say they’re worth their weight in gold, but it doesn’t mean anything if they don’t have the testimonials to back it up.

Take a look at these reviews from lighting and interior designers, business owners, lighting specialists, and homeowners. Each has excellent things to say about us and we’re glad to have happy customers. We never take our clients for granted and appreciate each and every one of you for taking the time to leave your testimonials.

“Oh my God! Your framing projector lights are amazing!  My original Spar Street artwork has never looked better and my clients are thrilled with the way things turned out. I will insist on the use of your art lighting products to all my collectors of my artworks going forward.  I can see how our not using your lighting system makes it so that 80% of the colors, the majesty and the aliveness of the work is lost! Thanks again for all the technical help getting things set up and adjusted to perfection. You were there for us from the initial idea to fine art ecstasy!”

Spar Street – Artist

“I own a lighting design firm out of NYC. We have used many other art lighting systems in the past and found that Phantom Lighting does an amazing job at framing art pieces to help you really appreciate the beauty and detail of each piece. We used the trim-less version with the flush caps, wallpapered over the caps and the fixtures almost disappeared. Tom and his staff are a pleasure to deal with and very knowledgeable, dependable, and professional. We will without a doubt continue to do business with Phantom Lighting Systems in the future.”

Jon-Carlo Marras – Marras Lighting Design

Tom’s Phantom Lighting is the answer…. to fine art and cabinet illumination – the hidden framing projectors are so good at illuminating our Peter Lik collection just within the frames that my original art looks backlit – like a screen image, but that’s clearly impossible, so my guests often ask me “How can this be?” The projectors are all but invisible in the ceiling so it really does look like magic!

Joe & Lily Bruso – Satisfied Customers

“I looked at many systems for my curio cabinet lighting 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

“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 lighting 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 Lighting.”

Dan & Patti Steiner – Satisfied Customers

“I have had the privilege to work with Tom on many projects, both commercial and residential. I love working with someone who is knowledgeable and dependable. Tom and his staff are the type of team mates who treat my customers like I do. The end results are very satisfied customers and beautiful projects.”

Donna Vining – Interior Designer

“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.”

Colleen Romanov Holthouse – Satisfied Customer

“Lincoln Property Company has been depending on Tom Kretzschmar to handle our art lighting for over fifteen years. Tom has the knowledge and experience to handle our large lighting needs. We appreciate his professionalism, strong work ethic and respect that he shows our staff when visiting our offices. His Phantom projectors absolutely make our paintings glow from within. We highly recommend Tom Kretzschmar for all your lighting needs.”

Leigh Ann Everett – Lincoln Property Company

“My wife and I love coming home at night seeing the warmth of our bookshelf lighting and especially the way Phantom Lighting has illuminated my grandmother’s Chinese cabinet that stands in our living room. Perfect lighting, with no spillage—I highly recommend Phantom Lighting–there’s no better lighting for your home.”

Mark & Brenda Harris – Satisfied Customers

“Tom Kretzschmar is one of the very best art lighting professionals that I have had the pleasure of working with over the span of my 38-year career. The Phantom LED Framing Projector is first class as well as the working knowledge his staff provides to each individual project. I highly recommend Phantom Lighting and the products they offer, their expertise is hard to match!”

Thomas P. Richmond – Art Lighting Specialist

“Hands down Tom Kretzschmar has been the best business partner our firm has had in all our years in business. Our clients have always been so pleased with his products and services. So, it’s without any reservations whatsoever that I would highly recommend Phantom Lighting.”

Jeff Halper – Exterior Worlds

“As the owner of The Shade Shop, I have worked with Tom for over 25 years and am always thoroughly impressed with his knowledge and expertise in specialty lighting. Our team has never been disappointed with his professionalism and customer service. I would highly recommend his company for any specialized lighting application and think you would be hard-pressed to find more of an expert in the industry!”

Larry Sams – The Shade Shop

“After relying on you and your staff at Illuminations for over 25 years at home, and having everything turn out so perfectly, it can only be that you will make a great success of Phantom Lighting Systems. You provided us with the most effective lighting for our home in general, and our artifacts in particular. We have been very pleased throughout the years.”

Drew & Edna Robins – Satisfied Customers

“We have been a customer of Tom’s for over 30 years and have never been disappointed in him, his work or his Phantom Lighting products.  From start to finish, Tom is very professional, courteous and easy to work with.  He and his company have done many projects in and around our home over the years and they are still working well.

We particularly enjoy our Phantom cabinet lighting and how it makes such a visual impact in our family room. Wow what a difference when you turn the lights on! Without a doubt, we would highly recommend Tom and his company.”

Drs. Dale & Carol Brant – Satisfied Customers

“Tom and I have been friends and worked on the same jobs together for years. 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.”

Greg Schenck – Schenck and Company

“I recently completed a high-end residential installation in Pacific Heights California where we used a huge amount of Phantom Lighting products for cove lighting, cabinet lighting and task lighting.

Only Phantom Lighting offers you the flexibility to adjust your shelves without having to disconnect wiring or modifying the cabinet. Phantom Lighting is perfect for setting the mood and the results were fantastic! Thanks for all your help and for making such user friendly luxury lighting products!”

Randall Whitehead – Lighting Designer

Tom is our “go to” for art lighting services for our clients. Proper lighting of artwork is as important as the selection of the pieces themselves. It takes depth of knowledge, strong listening skills and, at times, the ability to think outside of the box. Tom brings all these elements to our client base.
