CORONA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 3, 2023/ / -- The Minka Group is excited to announce the expansion of their highly successful collaboration with award-winning interior and product designer Robin Baron!

To launch the North American debut of its expanded Robin Baron Lighting Collection, Minka will host an exclusive launch party to “Brighten Up Your Market with The Baroness!” during Dallas Market Center’s Lightovation event.

Tim Flannery, President of Minka Group shared, “Working with Robin is a joy, and we eagerly anticipate our 2023 Dallas showroom kickoff with the expansion of her lighting collection. The Robin Baron Lighting Collection and her aesthetic is the perfect blend of modern meets luxury and offers a wide range of design styles that our customers and the consumers absolutely love and admire.”


The Minka Group’s exclusive launch party will help to celebrate Robin Baron’s (aka The Baroness) newly expanded Lighting Collection with The Minka Group and will be held during Lightovation in The Minka Group’s Dallas lighting showroom on Monday, January 9th, from 3:00-6:00 pm in Dallas Market Center’s Trademart Building, 4th Floor, Space 4103 (2100 N Stemmons Fwy, Dallas, TX 75207). Minka’s “Brighten Up Your Market with The Baroness” party will also feature DJs and a signature drink in Baron’s honor, “The Barontini”. Guests are asked to RSVP on Eventbrite.

As an added bonus, The Minka Group will host a second event with a special meet & greet with Celebrity Interior & Product Designer Robin Baron, President of Robin Baron Design, on Tuesday, January 10th from 4:00 - 5:00 pm in their Dallas showroom TM4103. Baron will meet with market attendees to offer insights and inspiration behind her exquisite lighting designs and share her experiences working with The Minka Group.


“Minka Group and its brands are a Dallas destination because of their incredible style and craftsmanship. The Robin Baron collection is a further example of how they provide incredible options for customers,” says Michael Bauer, Dallas Market Center VP of Business Development, Design.

The Minka Group’s partnership with nationally recognized interior designer Robin Baron initially launched in January 2022 with a capsule collection introducing fashion-forward lighting sconces, pendants, and dazzling chandeliers in multiple sizes and in distinctive finishes.

Baron shared, “Lighting, like jewelry, should be bold, and fabulous! Wherever I travel, I am always drawn to vintage, unique, and specialty pieces as one of my greatest passions is jewelry. In the same way that a beautiful piece of jewelry defines a fashionable look, the right light fixture is able to completely transform a room from simple to stunning. My lighting designs for Minka Group make that statement - by punctuating the space, elevating the design, and giving each room that finishing touch that homeowners crave”.


Robin Baron’s Lighting Collections for The Minka Group feature illustrious and iconic style – with collections named as an homage to neighborhoods in Robin’s hometown of New York. The Astor, Chelsea, Gramercy, SoHo, Sutton, Tribeca, and Yorkville - along with the newly added NoHo, North Fork, and Watermill Collections - are each entirely unique and feature brilliant, bold style that runs throughout Baron’s entire Minka Group lighting collections. As is evident in the starburst shapes featured in the Gramercy and Sutton designs and the elegant loops reflected in the Astor and Yorkville designs, Baron draws inspiration from her Signature Collection of decorative hardware and her licensed hardware collection with Hamilton Sinkler. The stylish SoHo and NoHo designs incorporate mixed materials and finishes, a clear nod to her fashion background, and pair exquisitely with Robin’s UnZipped Pillow Collection by The Pillow Goddess™.


Robin’s licensing agent Yudi Kaufman, YKD Associates, added, “I have worked with Robin Baron for a decade and she continues to shine as a design superstar. As with anything designed by Robin, her love of jewelry and a keen eye for scale and proportion is apparent.”
