These are very nice bookshelf lights. They were from Eureka Lighting, but I no longer see them available in their product line. The old specification we have says, E3401P low voltage downlights to illuminate bookcases.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shawn Gauthier added this to Your Doors: Make a Grand Entrance
Add a nautical flair to your interiors with a look straight from a submarine. This door gives a hallway of books a very Jacques Cousteau feel.
John Hill added this to 24 Amazing Walls of Books
Here is another hallway mezzanine (nice door at the far end!) where books are placed around the windows, taking advantage of every bit of wall space.
