Looking for lighting...

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for some type of nice mood-like lighting.

I've seen a couple of people with what I'm looking for but I can't find them.

Examples include lights that are behind desks that kind of shine up and leave a bit of a glow behind the desk.

I've also seen them above the desk shining down causing the same type of thing.

This is a horrible example but unfortunately it's the closest I could find:

But Stefan has it here as well, though it's not behind a desk:

And you can really notice it here, except this is too "blue" for me...too modern. I'm looking for more "cozy" like the first. smile.gif

If anyone could help, that would be awesome!

additional strips may be needed, but with all the colors (moods) and remote, you'd be all set.

^ Absolutely recommend.

Also, you can get some nice, cheap lighting like in the second pic in the OP at IKEA ~$5 each.

Thanks! That looks incredible except I'm looking more for individual lighting. For example in the second picture, there are two "accent lights" if you will. That's more what I'm looking for right now.

If that's what's at IKEA, do you mind linking me? Sorry, I don't know what to search for. frown.gif

Those lights that were recommended will do individual as well. It's just more robust and be used however you want. If not, look for other strips if you're not interested in those.

The second link (GRUNDTAL) looks perfect! I wonder, do they make them in black?

Where did you get them from? Same brand name and whatnot? Can you link me?
