HELP - light fixture advice needed

mdlnJune 13, 2014


Planning on this light for my foyer. Looking for another light, ceiling mount with max height of 20'' or less, that will coordinate with this - to go in a hallway.

Due to open concept both will be visible from living & dining room.

Any suggestions??? THANK YOU!

No house pictures? Hard to know anything about what might work without some idea of your home.

I have nothing. This is a fire restoration and I have to replace my entire house (lost everything, including my 3 cats). Unfortunately, electrical work needs to be completed before I can move in and make other purchases.

Thank you for asking.

Used this fixture and mounted it flush with the ceiling on an installation. Uttermost.

Oh, I am so very sorry for your loss, especially the precious cats. I know that houses can be rebuilt,but animals and people, pictures can never be replaced. So sorry.

Is it a fire restoration or a rebuild? If it is a total rebuild, do you have your architect or builder plans? Do you know what the height of your ceiling will be? How much natural light will you have otherwise? Your hall will probably be pretty dark (or not). I do not have very good vision so it is hard to read the specs on your current light. How wide, how long and how tall is your hall so that will give someone an idea of what kind of lighting you will need.

I am truly sorry for your loss. May everything turn out very well for you and hope that you will find blessings even in this disaster.

Thank you patricia43. Everything else does not matter in comparison to the loss of my kitties. I cannot even type this without crying.

The house was gutted to the studs & foundation. Ceiling height is not changing. The fixture I had in that hallway was 15-20'' in height and I used a 75w bulb, so am looking for something that will meet those specs - and not clash with this fixture that I picked out for the foyer. The ET2 Inca (pictured) is 16'' wide and 8.5'' in height.

@ beverly27 - where did you get your fixture?

I'm so sorry to hear about your home and your kitties :( The same thing happened to a friend of mine and it was so awful.

I'm assuming you know there is a coordinating ceiling mount fixture in the same line as your foyer light? Maybe you don't want matching? But, just in case, I thought I'd post it....

Contemporary Ceiling Lighting by Schaumburg Lighting Littman Bros Lighting

Maybe something plainer? $149 from shades of light

Thank you olychick for your very kind words. "So awful" is a good description.

I considered 2 of the same design, but concerned about it looking too matchy-matchy. Also, because I'm making so many selection choices in such a short period of time, fear I may not like it - once it is up. If I don't, I only need to buy/replace 1 fixture (vs 2).

I like the one you found! Thank you.
