Trying to get a great photo of a cable lighting system is a challenge!
But that’s actually the point: Cable lighting is designed to be unobtrusive and disappear in space. Especially in spaces with very high ceilings this type of low voltage system is a true life-saver.
At my own house I had a different kind of dilemma: In our traditional pueblo style adobe with a large living area it was difficult to add light to the center. We didn’t want anything too overpowering, and even though we love contemporary furnishings most contemporary light fixtures looked out of place against our massive vigas (beams) and rough sawn lumber ceiling.
As the owner of Form + Function I have the privilege that I do get to play around with different lighting options and I decided to give cable lighting a chance.
It worked!! The result was what I had hoped for: nobody notices where the light actually comes from. With the use of copper Lil Wok shields on Pivot fixtures the heads virtually disappear against the honey-colored wood. The cables themselves are practically invisible too.
At Form + Function we carry Tech Lighting Kable Lite. There are several brands out there, but we love the flexibility of this system, since it accepts most fixtures from all the other Tech Lighting systems.
