NEW LED PAR38 Recessed Light Bulb
LR-101 is back!!! The LR-101 is our 6″ Victorian Style decorative recessed light trim. We have been manufacturing this trim for 17 years. At that time recessed lights were mainly 6″ and there were no decorative options until we introduced them.
In 2006 we won the Top 100 Products Award by Residential Lighting Magazine.
Our LR-101 was made to fit with an incandescent bulb, or a PAR38 quartz halogen flood lamp. The nice thing about the LR-101 is we could paint the baffle to match the finish on the Victorian Decorative Trim as shown here.
Eventually recessed lighting manufacturers came out with 5″, 4″, 3-3/4″, and 3″ sizes. We kept pace with the market and created sizes for all the recessed lighting in the marketplace.
The next change came with LED technology which has revolutionized recessed lighting. Now rather than incandescent bulbs, there were LED retrofits for 4, 5″ and 6″ recessed lights. The main problem was that all the LED lights were white so it limited our finish options.
Unfortunately the 5-6″ LED retrofits did not work with our 6″ LR-101. This is our 4″ which accepts an LED retrofit which is up to 5″ in diameter.
One of our most popular sizes today is our 4″ LR-141. It works with the new LED Ultra thins and LED Ceiling Downlights that are 5″ or under in diameter.
Since our Victorian trim was our most popular we had it scanned so we could offer it for all recessed light applications. The earliest documentation of the Victorian trim we saw in the Syracuse Ornament Company 1820 Catalogue and later it became part of the Decorators Supply Catalogue in 1890.
So back to the LR-101. As you can see all the new recessed lights have a frame around the LED light source, until now. Recently LED lightbulbs have become better looking. Here is the latest addition, the Full Glass PAR38 LED Dimmable Bulb. It works with the 6″ LR-101 Victorian Trim. It is a handsome installation with no additional frame around the light source and we can offer handpainted baffles to match our beautiful Finishes.
Here is the 6″ Victorian along with the Halo H7 canister and a great looking LED PAR38 bulb.
