Large picture lights, with shades 21" and larger

These works can support the dimensional effect of the T style traditional shade. The T42-31 is a 42” wide shade, which can work with paintings from 70” to 84” wide.

The DT36-61 is our Direct Wire 36” Traditional Shade finished in a gleaming polished brass, this art light would be best for paintings between 55” to 72” wide.

When you have a very large framed piece you really do need to find the perfect picture light. Customization is possible because we are right next to the factory where these fine House of Troy lamps are crafted by hand by Vermont lamp artisans. Large slim line picture lights can also be specially designed to suit unusual art lighting situations, for example custom direct mounting can allow them to be mounted from ceilings, concrete walls, or attached through wood panels such as library casings. The custom direct mounting can also be modified for longer extensions to accommodate your painting’s position in relation to where the lamp is mounted.
