This lighting fixture is part of a collection that we call Retro. The wood is ash that is finished in coconut oil and the pendants feature silver cords and bronze aluminum sockets. While this particular lighting fixture is a beam light, you can also find plank and cluster lights in the same collection.
The wood in this lighting fixture is Ash which has a strong natural grain, similar to oak. We then finish the maple with an all-natural oil stain that gives the wood color while still allowing the wood grain and texture to come through. The beam itself is a hollow beam which reduces the weight of the fixture hanging on your ceiling and gives us a place to tuck away the electrical components.
This lighting fixture is designed to connect directly to your electrical box. If this is an issue for you, for example if your electrical box is not centered on your space, let us know and there are ways that we can adapt the fixture. All electrical parts in this fixture are UL rated; we do still recommend that an electrician install your fixture.
At Loewen Design Studios we've decided to switch to only LED bulbs. All of our bulbs are 4 Watt dimmable LED bulbs. The Warm bulbs are 2700K and the White bulbs are 4000K. These bulbs are very energy efficient, making them good for the environment and good for your energy bill, even if there are many of them in a fixture. You can choose to include our bulbs with your light fixture or supply your own.
The beam has a clean modern look with pendants that go through the beam giving it a unique style.
We build every light to order so while we have focused on combinations that we know work well together, we are able to customize your lighting fixture to your needs. Whether that be changing the color of the cord or imagining something quite different, let us know what you have in mind.
