Monorail is a great choice for a high ceiling.
What’s the best way to add overhead lights to a tall ceiling?
For soaring ceilings in urban lofts and suburban great rooms, pliable low-voltage systems work magic, says designer Rey-Barreau. He prefers the Monorail system, right. Hand-shape the exposed conductors into waves and wide arcs, or play it straight. Use an adapter to easily replace an existing overhead or recessed light. Choose from Victorian, Mission, and Art Deco designs through the new Wilmette Lighting Company line, plus scores of modern pendants and mini spotlight head options from Tech Lighting.

Monorail for High Ceilings
Replace any fixture with a surface mount transformer, then run the rail along the ceiling. Stems and cables can bring the light closer and direct it wherever you want.
