Integrated lighting and more

Color Me Cool
Federal Brace’s Eco-Lucent LED lighting system offers energy efficiency via a color-changing light strip. Recessed under cabinets or toe kicks, it includes an IR remote with dimmer, a 24-volt power source and extra cables for multi-system connections. federalbrace.com

Scandinavian Style
Color authority Pantone has partnered with e3Light to launch a six-piece lighting collection inspired by Scandinavian design. Pictured above, the Castor pendant has a steel shade in a sanded-matte finish. Available in two sizes and three hues. lightcolorlive.com

Fluted Glass
Vintage perfume bottles inspired the Riviera pendant collection by Kichler. The fluted-glass fixtures can hang singly or in clusters, and are available locally at Ferguson with hardware in Brushed Nickel or Olde Bronze. kichler.com; fergusonshowrooms.com

Arms Akimbo
The Akimbo Linear Suspension fixture from Tech Lighting conjures leafless winter branches with its jagged lines and asymmetrical shape. Edison-style bulbs add an industrial vibe. Available in a black or antique-bronze finish. techlighting.com

Light of Day
Ketra has created a line of LEDs that mimic natural light—bright during the day, soft at night. The integrated system operates via an app. Above, S38 lamps in recessed cans illuminate a bath with a natural glow. Available through Integrated Media Systems. ketra.com; imsva.com

Minimalist Look
With its clean-lined, sloped profile, the Neutrino outdoor sconce from LBL Lights conveys a minimalist look while directing light up or down. The dimmable aluminum fixture comes in Graphite or Bronze and measures six by four and a half inches. lbllights.com.
