Halogen Pedestal Lights Help Turn Lackluster Displays into Inspiring Ones

It is no deep, dark secret that it takes a lot of perspiration, creativity and dedication to create the perfect piece of art. So it would truly be shameful to display it in a lackluster light. Thankfully, there are halogen pedestal lights available that can really make an artist’s work pop.

Halogen pedestal lights are designed to last long, produce less soot and emit the most beautiful, bright, white light the world has ever seen. It is widely accepted that because of their inherent nature, the bulbs will draw favorable attention to objects and reduce viewers’ eye strain. In addition, today’s halogen pedestal lights tend to be relatively energy efficient and reasonably priced too.

On the downside, the bulbs can run hot and produce intense reflections or glare. Thus, it is important to pair halogen lights with the right type of museum quality pedestals and artwork. Otherwise, the objects on display could inadvertently heat up and the glare could create an unwanted distraction.

At Pedestal Source, we have overhead lighting systems that are custom made for use with our visually dramatic, first-class pedestals and are sold separately for your convenience. The systems make use of halogen bulbs, pivoting hoods and telescoping, stainless steel rods. The rods are capable of reaching heights of 36 or 60-inches. Thus, they may be adjusted or otherwise configured in a variety of ways.
Designed to function as down lights, they are known to work well in various display situations. For example, they could easily be used to highlight clear, semi-opaque and opaque sculptures as well as framed paintings. Just make sure that the bulb is positioned well above the item. It should also have has the potential to provide illumination that exceeds the room’s overall lighting intensity by three.

Lighted Displays Can Help Liven Up Secret Supper Club Designs

There is no denying it. An increasing number of Americans are in love with secret supper clubs. And with all of those underground restaurants cropping up to feed foodies’ desires, secret chefs must continue to reinvent their offerings in more ways than one. That’s where lighted displays can help.

Lighted displays are practical, extremely portable and can add instant ambiance to a variety of locations. They may also be outfitted with finishes that are easy to clean and maintain in between secret supper club meetings. For example, let’s say that a clandestine dinner service calls for an ice carving. The carving could be placed in a clear acrylic base and then placed on top of the lighted display. As a result, the light from the display would shine up through the base and illuminate the ice carving. The lighted base would also cast a glow over the tables or walkways positioned near it.

Ice carvings are not the only items that could be placed on top of lighted displays. Fruit baskets, chocolate fountains, edible art, cupcake trees and edible flowers would work very well too. Of course the items placed onto the light displays don’t have to be edible either. The stands could hold donation jars, menu boards and other secret supper club accouterments.

At Pedestal Source, we have standard and custom lighted displays that would be perfect for clandestine, culinary events. For a hip, contemporary look, secret chefs may want to go with one of our sign acrylic lighted pedestals. They come in fun, trendy colors like red, blue, white and green.
