Jan. 1, 2014 marked the end of production for these lamps as they follow the 75 and 100 watt lamps into the dustbin.

Harrell was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the September 2013 Michigan Chapter annual meeting. The award is named for LInda Thomas in recognition of her years of tireless advocacy for the interior design profession. The award was presented by Michigan ASID President Suzanne Buckley and ASID National President Barbara Marini at the Haworth corporate headquarters in Holland, Michigan. Harrell’s comment right before the recipient was announced: “I’m pretty sure it’s not me.”
