  • The Rockefeller Tree Gets an Update

    Rockefeller Christmas Tree 2008

    It's great to see new technology applied in an unexpected place with stellar results. In this case, the update of the Rockefeller Center Tree to an LED light display has reduced the energy consumption by somewhere around 60% per day.

    I can't wait to see what's next as LED technology improves and LED lighting products become more available.

  • Tips from Kichler Lighting

    Kichler Chandelier

    Kichler has some interesting designs for the kitchen, like this kitchen island chandelier (no longer available). Twenty-three candelabra bulbs are set inside of faux glass candles. It has this very romantic look, yet there are also two spot light bulbs hidden in the bottom for task lighting.

    There is a great little video on YouTube in which a lighting expert from Kichler is interviewed and give tips on kitchen lighting.
