what light over spiral stairs?

waterlmcApril 22, 2010

Hi all. Any suggestions for a light/chandy over spiral stairs? They are in a corner of a great room, going down. Black. I'd like something architectural. Style of great room is contemporary. At this point, this is the only non-recessed light. There likely will be wall sconces and freestanding lights at some point, but for now everything is a blank slate, which is completely daunting. Thanks for any ideas. Lisa

Depending on the amount of headroom you have, a pendant would be nice. It would have to be scaled for the space. That is, not too big or too small--in line with the scale of the staircase. Check out Buylight for some really nice, highly discounted fixtures from Europe. Traditional and modern.

How about an LED rope light runing along under the bannister?
