The wood frames are a combination of built up pieces and fully solid pieces. The verticals and smaller horizontals are solid wood. The lower horizontal beam element is a built up beam construction -- the upper section contains concealed wiring and a linear upwards acting strip light fixture. The wood has a clear finish only - no stain. The small darker square accent elements are mahogany plugs that were used to cover the recessed connections. They were sanded flush with the fir and the two woods were finished together.
Thanks for the question.

thanks for the comment.
These lights were made by a company called "kind of bugs ya" that is unfortunately out of business.
Maybe another Houzser knows of a similar fixture that is available.

There is something similar by Nora Lighting, small cubes in different colors. Sold on ATG Stores. Size is 3.5"x3.5, still looking for other larger versions.
