library light reinvented....

where most people would look at this light and see something that needs to be used when reading, i see this fixture with a whole new outlook. i love taking this traditional light and throwing it in a nontraditional setting. place two of these above your kitchen window and it would make great task lighting. you could also use this as a bathroom fixture over your mirror....who says you have to use the same old sconce with frosted glass? or it would look great on the wall next to your window seat (and i guess this would be slightly taking it back to its original purpose but we'll let it slide). spacing these around a room (like at eye-level) or mounted them on the tops of bookshelves also make a dandy use for this extremely functional light. but in order to achieve these nontraditional looks, you need to make sure you remember to review this with your electrician. they will have to install electrical wires in these not-so-typical places. this is something that you definitely want to think about when you are building a house and make sure to point out during your electrical walk through...another great reason why working with a designer can be a real plus...
