Linear lighting is an effective and beautiful solution to a wide variety of needs. The most obvious are applications over longer surfaces – kitchen islands, dining tables, conference tables. Not only will a linear light provide even illumination over these surfaces, it will also make a tidy aesthetic statement through balanced proportion.

They can also upstage the traditional bathroom vanity lightbar, streamline workspace task lighting, or neatly fill vertical space in a vaulted living room.
