    I love the Solace double light in chrome.
    unfortunately the website leads to a dead link and the phone # is for Moen and the reps claim they do not carry tube light fixtures.
    Anyone know where i can find this fixture?
    Thank you!!

    Showhouse Lighting is actually a division of the Moen company, and that’s the number they gave us to use when we featured their Solace Light in the February 2011 issue of Old-House Interiors.
    It’s true that this web address doesn’t seem to work now, perhaps you could try instead. I was still able to find this product for sale online by several companies. The Moen product number is YB9963.
    Hope this information helps!
