  • Patent number: 8118445
    Abstract: A light system for a vanity having a horizontal counter top with a wash basin positioned therein. Mounted on a wall, adjacent the counter top, is a mirror for reflecting a person's image. Along an upper edge of the mirror is a horizontal row of lights, similar to those typically mounted above conventional vanities. At least two light housings angularly depend from the lower surface of the counter top, each including an interior chamber, an open top and an outer wall. Received within the interior chamber is a compact fluorescent lamp removably mounted within a conventional light socket. An opening is formed on the counter top, immediately above the open top of each housing, for receiving a tempered-glass panel. Accordingly, activating the angled lamps and the conventional overhead lights illuminates a user's entire face thereby allowing the user to gauge the appearance of makeup in daylight conditions.
