lighting for sewing room
I am getting my daughters old bedroom to turn into my own private sewing room. The ceiling is nine feet tall, there are 3 south and west facing windows,light blue walls and black carpeting. I need to know what type of overhead light would be best to use in this room. I already have 2 ott light goose neck floor lamps that I use at my sewing tables, however, I need something overhead to light up the entire room. My cutting table will be in the center of the room for easy all around access. My ironing station has its own built in lamp. My electrician is suggesting wrapped double tube florescent fixtures but that sounds too much like industrial lighting. My old house had lower ceilings and I had a ceiling fan with tulip lights and that gave me a lot of light. This house is an old farmhouse with extra high ceilings. I may want to turn the room into a sitting room at some point and don't want to make it to uninviting. Right now there is no lighting of any kind, save for the Ott lamps.
