Use our filter to choose the table lamp that suits your needs: aluminum, metal, plastic or even glass for a modern touch!
In the absence of do-it-yourself skills and/or knowledge of electricity, we strongly recommend that you entrust the installation of your table lighting to a certified professional.
You can fix your painting spotlight directly on the wall above the artwork to be illuminated. You will get a professional quality result. Take care to center it a few centimeters above the painting.
If you choose to fix your painting lighting directly on the top frame of your artwork, this will allow you to move the artwork without having to rearrange the light source part.
If you haven't made your choice yet, many models of picture lighting can be mounted on the wall as well as on the frame!
To equip your spotlight lighting table, you have four options:
LED panel lighting: you will get a bright, economical and durable light. This technology does not emit UV light and heat, so it is perfect for preserving paintings, prints and photographs. We recommend a LED bulb with a CRI (Color Rendering Index) of 80+ to appreciate the beauty of your artwork!
The incandescent bulb: increasingly rare on the European market, this type of bulb is however usable for works in red, brown and yellow tones.
Halogen: just like the incandescent bulb, halogen is destined to disappear from the European market. Nevertheless, if you choose to use it, it will produce a bright white light, ideal for highlighting a wide range of colors.
The fluorescent lamp: it produces the same amount of light as the incandescent bulb, but requires 75% less energy.
The purchase of a luminaire, including frame lighting, should leave no room for chance and improvisation. Our team is at your disposal by phone and email to answer all your questions.
