The latest trend is the low voltage track system. Low-voltage monorail track lighting system not only highlight important artifacts and artwork, but also transform otherwise dim and dark places into welcoming spaces, even narrow hallways.
Low voltage track system comes in a variety of configurations such as basis or monorail, twin rail, and cable, and styles such as traditional, modern, classic and contemporary.
Once you pick your system, track or monopoint, you need to select compatible fixtures or pendants and finish preferences.
Most fixtures come with numerous incandescent and fluorescent lamping options and a wide variety of diffuser colors and finishes. Metal finishes are used most often because they are precision machined, which allows for flawless designs and an ultra modern look.
Hand blown glass and carved alabaster are the latest trend for pendant choice and hanging bowl lights because of the warm glow they create.
