Fixture suggestions for a dome house

Posted by EchoDome (My Page) on

Hello,

We're in the middle of remodeling a geodesic dome, and are stumped for what style of light fixture to put in the entry/living room, which has a curved cathedral ceiling.

Picture of the room is here http://echo-dome.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/IMG_2000.jpg The lights there are just temporary, hanging from the bare wires.

Overall style for the house so far is simple, craftsman lines, with some tiffany glass items.

We like http://www.lumens.com/Oval-Impressions-Wall-Sconce-by-Hubbardton-Forge/uu115305/product but it is expensive for 5 of them (there's another wall light above the entry door).

Any brilliant ideas? Thanks

Cove lighting works very well with cathedral ceilings. It can be implemented using either fluorescent tubes or led strips, all hidden by a ledge / crown molding.

Consider cable lighting!
