This is great for creating different mood lighting while ensuring you can still see by having the downlight for example to be brighter and whiter perhaps, or you can set them to whatever you want.

Can you compare the brightness of these lights? I would like to know the Lumens rating if possible. Is the beyond pendant light brighter than the flourish?
Hi how many lumens do each of these lights put out? That’s a critical factor in lighting design, yet surprisingly hard to find. thanks.
