Creative Ideas From Our Online Lighting Showroom


Taking a tour through Phantom Lighting’s online showroom is the best way for architects, custom cabinet makers, home builders, commercial lighting specialists, and interior decorators to find exactly what they need to give their clients the very best in art lighting, cabinet lighting, cove lighting, and shelf lighting systems. We offer our commercial and residential lighting design clients the convenience of a showroom that requires no travel costs or downtime to look through, and a unique lighting fixture manufacturing process that installs hidden decorative and art lighting fixtures with such unobtrusive positioning that you literally see only the light, never the fixture. Each project featured in our online lighting showroom displays a level of specification design and custom installation unrivaled on the standard linear light strip and art projector open markets, and gives you access to one of a kind, cost effective accent lighting tools that add robust effect and cost effectiveness to the proposals you offer your clients.

Original artwork is dramatically illuminated with Phantom Contour Projectors concealed in the ceiling. One of the advantages of using framing projectors is the ability to mask the light to the exact contour of the object. The results are spectacular! Art lighting projects featured in our online showroom reveal a wide range of applications for the Phantom Contour Projector.

Fine art can be uniquely distinguished with a high precision set of adjustable shutters, shaping the beam of light to fit the dimensions of the painting, without spilling light on the surrounding wall and frame. Multiple paintings in a collage can be illuminated by the use of a custom cut brass template. Pay particular attention to the paintings in our online showroom that are shown hanging above fireplace mantles. Regardless of the size of the painting, and regardless of whether it stretches vertically or horizontally across the wall, the Contour Projectors beam is able to match the light to the canvas.

As you will also notice in these pictures, the only visible light that viewers can see is the light that appears to emanate from the paintings themselves. This effect is known as the “lighted from within” effect and has earned our organization the reputation of bringing museum quality art lighting to the private and commercial art collector. Meanwhile, the beam itself is invisible, thanks to the unique halogen bulb and complex lens and shuttering system through which we pass this rich, white light. If you are an interior decorator, we invite you to order our DVD catalogue, or simply show your clients our online lighting showroom to give them tangible examples of how any one of our six projector models can be used to light their artwork.

Phantom cove lighting illuminates the trayed ceiling in the handsome dining room setting. Used in conjunction with dimmer controls, this low voltage linear lighting source can be adjusted to create ambiance and mood. A Contour projector was used to light the table with glare free illumination.

The second portion of our online lighting showroom is dedicated to various cabinet, cove, display, and antique furniture lighting effects that we have created using our proprietary, custom linear lighting strips. These are not the standard linear strips you buy from online stores or find in retail showrooms. These strips are engineered for custom manufacturing and specification fitting to precise vertical or horizontal surfaces. This means that if you are a custom cabinet maker, you can have under cabinet light strips manufactured that will be perfectly concealed under any kitchen cabinet or custom built-in cabinet you install.

Photos in the lighting showroom portion of our website portray a number of instances where light seems to mysteriously emanate downward from an invisible point of origin beneath the surface of the cabinet or shelves. This is due to the fact that our linear strips are designed to be ultra-thin. Engineered with glare shields and manufactured to mount under the front of the cabinet, these lights project brilliant dimmable lighting down and away from the eyes, as you will notice in many display lighting photographs found in our lighting showroom gallery.

You will no doubt notice as well in both the art lighting section and the display lighting section of our showroom a number of photos where exceptional cove lighting adds accent to art and display cabinet lighting. Believe it or not, these cove lights are also manufactured from the same basic linear lighting templates that we make our cabinet lighting fixtures from. One of our flexible cove strip lights, the CM series, can be bent to wind along a serpentine cove, or bend in an arc to light the vaulted interior of a domed ceiling.

Phantom lighting mounted in wine cellar as an indirect lighting source provide mood, ambiance and style. You will find other examples of eclectic art and sculpture lighting in our showroom today, and look at some of the highly specialized projects we have done over the years in the areas of wine cellar lighting, collector’s displays, antique furniture lighting, and bookshelf lighting. Although each project is unique, it is easy to find exactly what you need by finding one or more projects displayed in our lighting showroom, picking up the phone, and calling our main office to request something similar for your next build out, architectural design, or interior decorating project. Our lighting supply agent network will then take it from there.
