Shapes & Forms Of Lighting

Hall/Foyer Fixtures can create a congenial atmosphere, while providing you with the general lighting you need to greet guests and assure safe passage into other areas of your home. Use ceiling, chain-hung, or close-to-ceiling fixtures in hallways, stairwells, and entryways.
Chandeliers can add sparkle and style to your dining room while giving you the general lighting you need for dining and entertaining. They are also used in bedrooms, foyers, or over a living room grouping or a grand piano. Some are designed with downlights to provide task lighting for homework or table games, or to accent table settings. Chandeliers are available in both incandescent and compact fluorescent. The addition of a dimmer control lets you alter the intensity of light to suit the mood and activity.
Pendants can provide both task and general lighting. Equipped with shades or globes to avoid glare, they are suspended from the ceiling over dinette tables, game tables, kitchen counters, or other work areas. When used over end or night tables, they free up the space occupied by table lamps. Pendants are available in halogen and compact fluorescent. The use of a dimmer control gives you the flexibility to vary the light to suit the occasion.
Ceiling Fixtures usually provide general lighting. They are practical in busy areas such as foyers, hallways, bedrooms, kitchens, baths, laundry rooms, playrooms, and dens. They are available with incandescent, fluorescent, and energy-efficient compact fluorescent bulbs.
Wall-Mounted Fixtures can furnish general, task, and accent lighting. Many are designed to match and supplement dining room chandeliers, or to provide hallway, bedroom, or living room lighting. Wall brackets/sconces are often used for task lighting at the bathroom mirror. LightWorld is also proud to feature many wall mounted fixtures that meet the government?s standard for the Americans With Disablilities Act (ADA). They are available with a choice of incandescent and energy-efficient compact fluorescent bulbs.
Bath/Vanity Lighting Strips supply task lighting, while supplementing the general lighting provided by ceiling fixtures. Similar to the lighting in theater dressing rooms, softly glowing strips of globe-shaped incandescent bulbs provide excellent lighting for applying makeup, shaving, and grooming. LightWorld also features energy saving fluorescent lighting options for bathroom areas of the home.
Track Lighting can provide general, task, or accent lighting all at once in one flexible lighting system. You can move, swivel, rotate, and aim the individual fixtures in any direction along the track, giving you the versatility to change your lighting scheme when the need arises. You can also hang small chandeliers and pendants from the track. Track fixtures are available in standard or low-voltage current, with a choice of halogen, and energy-efficient compact fluorescent light sources.
Recessed Lighting can provide general, task, or accent lighting inconspicuously. Installed in the ceiling with only the trim showing, recessed fixtures can be used anywhere in the home, including outdoors under eaves. They are ideal for low-ceiling areas; and with a special adapter they can also be used in cathedral ceilings. They are available as downlights, adjustable accent lights, and wall washers in both standard and low-voltage current with a choice of incandescent, halogen, and "energy-efficient compact fluorescents.
Undercabinet/ Undershelf Fixtures offer both task and accent lighting. Under kitchen cabinets they light a countertop. In a display cabinet they show off prized possessions. They're used in a workshop or anywhere you need lighting right at hand. They include slim, "energy-efficient fluorescents, miniature track lighting, and strips of low-voltage miniature lights from Sea Gull Lighting?s patented Ambiance? Lighting System.
