DC16-62 This direct wire Classic 16” is a modern chrome picture light that will provide up to 80 watts of dimmable incandescent light (if your electrician installs it on a dimmer switch). The perfectly mirror finish of gleaming plated chrome will accentuate the contemporary framing and artwork it illuminates. The 16” shade is just right for medium sized art works between 24” and 32” wide.

Chrome lighting for artwork is an outstandingly modern choice that allows the picture light itself to take center stage with the highly reflective quality of heavy plated chrome that gleams like a mirror. Chrome plating gives a classic picture light shade a more contemporary feel. Chrome lighting for artwork has a highly polished, mirror-like appearance. Chrome would be a great complement to Chrome frames as well as most metallic frames (I have one on a bright green metal frame and it looks amazing), or any black and most silver frames. Some frames are actually mirrors, and a Chrome art frame light on top would just be dynamite. If Chrome is already in your gallery or your home you can't go wrong with more. The content of the picture also needs to be considered, of course, but many prints and photos would be perfectly suited to a chrome art light on the frame.
