Introducing Down Lighting!

Posted 5/24/2017 by Mariannes Rentals

You've heard of up lights, those little warriors of room transformation, and we are excited to announce the introduction of a versatile new product which expands this concept into down lighting! Our new lightweight, magnetic LED powered lights can be used up, down and sideways to create new and versatile applications with powerful coverage and color! In a room with high ceilings, using this product as a down light together with an uplight can ensure even coverage and dramatic effect. Or, use it solely as a down light to create a very different effect that draws attention to a spectacular ceiling, creates a non-traditional atmosphere or feeling of height in a room.

See the images below of this product used all three ways to wash this reception in white and then in blue.

This little powerhouse boasts a coveted capacity for a portable LED light: it will produce a beautiful warm white, as shown in the top left image. If you've typically thought of LED event lighting as producing a cool, blue-white effect, this product does not! The warm white is inviting, soothing and can even be called romantic - reminiscent of a candle's glow. When used in colors, it creates dynamic, brilliant color that can spread farther and with a wider range of colors than other LED fixtures. 

The fixtures are easily operated with a remote control and simple to install. Our full-service crew can help you achieve just the right look with a combination of these and other specialty lighting products. Or, you are welcome to pick them up and install them yourself!

Don't be fooled, while there are many ways and reasons to use this light, it isn't always the right fixture for every application. But whatever the right fixture is, we can help you identify it, as well as provide and install it at a reasonable cost. Your gorgeous linens and florals deserve the right wash of light that will make them glow without over illuminating the room. And sometimes, a traditional up light is the right product for a focused, dramatic effect. Whatever your vision, our creative rental consultants and full-service lighting team can transform your event with just the right atmosphere.
