A night to remember

Solus Lighting LTD was pleased to provide the décor lighting for a b’nai mitzvah this past weekend.  Ninety percent of the lighting elements consisted of LED lighting fixtures.  There were sculptures around the edge of the room that were lit with led strip lights.  Other elements included under table lighting, which were lit with wireless led fixtures.  Wireless led fixtures is something that we haven’t talked about too much here on the blog.  The advantages of wireless fixtures, is that there is no power or data cable running to these fixtures.  So when a client wants their spandex covered tables to glow and change color, there is no better choice than a wireless led fixture — no cables, and no heat generated from the light source.  Another element the decorator used was six 10′ tall white corrugated plastic columns.  These columns were used as set pieces for the dj booth
