So, yesterday I gave you a run down on my thoughts on stairwell lighting. I mentioned I was working on lighting for a client's renovation.
I thought you might like to see what we selected for her stairwells.
Since we were dealing with stairwells that were dark and a bit narrow, we decided to go with wall sconces. I first found this fixture and thought it would work perfectly in the space. It's the right style and has a really low profile. It's also simple with a current look.
These are $265 each and we needed 6 of them (three for each stairwell). So, we're talking around $1,600.00 for lighting. These are beautiful with leather detailing, but our goal was to provide light with low profile simple sconces, not make a statement with the lighting (or the price).
So, in comes one of my favorite lighting resources, Lamps Plus. You have to dig a bit, but you can find some amazing deals. Here's the look-a-like we ended up going with for her project.
These are $60.99 each. So, a total of $365.94 for all the stairwell lighting! The key element - same exact profile measurements (juts out only 4" from the wall). Man, I love a good deal!!
Btw, it also comes in a double light if you are looking for a brighter fixture.
I hope you have a great weekend. We are having some wonderful weather here in Birmingham, and the count down has begun for the last day of school - only one week left! We will be out enjoying our weekend. I hope you do the same. M.
