The decorative cove above the columns was constructed to match the ming throughout the house. Located on one side of the room only, the cove adds interest by concealing nine subminiature fluorescent fixtures, of only 11 watts each, filling the room with soft, indirect light. The alabaster glass cups of the chandelier house five compact fluorescent bulbs, of only 14 watts each. A low voltage halogen framing projector, not shown, creates a dramatic effect by concentrating light on artwork only.
