All,

I am finally going ot cover the white ceilings and remove the tacky ceiling fan in my tiki lounge. I need some ideas how to replace the light source from the fan in a tiki manner. This light will be on a dimmer and will be used for "last Call" duties as well as if someone loses a contact, a sewing needle or a diamond ring (all which have happened already) Any ideas would be appreciated.

I don't know.

What do you think Jimmy Buffet would do?

I doubt Buffet has much tiki in his house. Though you never know. I am a huge parrothead, but that's not the feel of my tiki lounge. I am looking for more upscale than the Margaritaville stuff, though I do like the tequilias.

I love those, however I am trying to eliminate the fan as it hangs too low and seems to crowd the space. My ceilings are not as tall as yours. Btw you have done awesome with your space.

Hey thanks, it's coming along. It's amazing what a bit of matting will do for esthetics.
So you're looking for something tiki AND bright? What about taking one of those white globe lights and decorating it up like a fish float? I've seen that done before with great results.

I agree about the difference matting makes, thats why I am trying to figure something out for my lighting. I just want the fixture to blend into the decor. This will probably not be a light that is used much. But if I need to turn it on (with a dimmer) I want to get something bright enough to find something on the floor. I am thinking the fish float is a good idea. THanks for your imput. I wonder if anyone else has any ideas.

Try contacting OnaTiki

or search on "lamp". A lot of fellow TCers have bright ideas.
