LED CONVERSIONS

About Panache Lighting

LED lighting offers great energy savings, and is becoming more and more popular.  In addition to LED screw-in bulbs which can replace almost any incandescent bulbs, LEDs can be installed in older light fixtures in a permanent way.  These photos show two projects which I have converted older lights to permanent LEDs.

The first light is an antique brass oil lamp from a temple. The client uses it in an entry area, and it had been electrified in a less than satisfactory way.

The second light is an iconic Louis Poulsen 'Oslo' pendant. It was originally wired with four U-shape fluorescent bulbs.

Then, I installed  a second, more powerful LED module to provide the uplight,

and then the arms of the light were attached.

This shows the finished light, now lit with LEDs, for a total of 35 watts, and dimmable.

Here is the light completed and lit.  The driver is located in the ceiling canopy.

I installed LED strips in each arm, supported by a center hub and brass strips.

I wired it with one LED module creating downlight, and a second creating uplight. This photo shows the installation of the LED module which provides the downlight:

My latest  kitchenware chandelier, all LED, old-fashioned but up-to-date!

I will be open next week Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Closed Thursday and Friday the 21st and 22
