Surya’s curvy Floki table lamp is made of orange-finished poplar wood. It stands 19.88 inches tall with a 100W bulb.
I have a two story great room with an open floor plan. Currently four recessed lights, installed by home builder, provide horrible ambient light that is dim and yellow. We are planning to upgrade to something else that provides more brightness and white (daylight) color. What is the best option from your perspective? LED flood lights versus retrofit with Cree lights versus something else? I am concerned about the heat generated — I do not want to have to hire someone to come out and change the bulbs in a couple of years. Any specifics on lumens, type and color would be greatly appreciated.
Yes, four recessed downlights are a terrible way to light the two-story space. Just changing out the light bulbs will not do much to improve the quality of light. These downlights cast harsh shadows on family and guests. They also don't provide any kind of ambient light/uplighting to show off this two-story expanse at night. My recommendation would be to install one or two pendant light fixtures, depending on the shape of the room. If it's a square, use one fixture, if it's a rectangle, use two...
