Anyone who has stood in confusion in the light-bulb aisle (and that’s most of us) knows that technology and the push to save energy are continuing to flip the script on home lighting options.

There are a lot of really artistic interpretations of lighting, things like sparkle and effects that designers couldn’t create with old-fashioned incandescent bulbs.”
