Well, ( scuffing the toe of his workboot in the dirt ) I’m over here visiting from the Breaktime Forum, looking for some advise. I’m trying to help my dear wife with a lighting problem with our two floor looms.
I want to provide some good task lighting for these looms, one 30″ and one 36″ I guess the years are working on us . . . the vision isn’t what it once was. She tells me that floor lamps get in her way, elbow-wise. I want to come up with a solution that will not compromise the residential feel of our living room – although we don’t have living room furniture. Two looms take up quite a bit of room !
I’ve thought about recessed lights, but I don’t want to put anything permanent into the ceiling in the interest of resale of the house and future furniture arrangement. I’ve considered track lighting, and I would mount this to the wall since it would be easier to patch and paint than a textured ceiling. I’ve thought about sconces, but shadows would be a problem. I guess there are decent quality clip-on lights, but I haven’t seen any. I even thought about rope lighting, which varies greatly in quality, but is basically a clear plastic tube with a small bulb every 6 inches or so. You often see this under kitchen cabinets.
Any hand weavers out there with an opinion or a solution ?
Thanks for any input ! Greg.
