As incandescent lighting continues to diminish, the creative use of LEDs requires a new approach to residential lighting. Written in a conversational voice by an award-winning interior designer, Lighting beyond Edison is structured to be a comprehensive guide for everyone from consumers to designers and building-industry pros.

You will learn:

- How many lumens per square foot are recommended in each room of a house - How to read LED labels - How different kinds of lampshades disperse light - How to balance light in a room - How to design home office lighting that is both energizing and restful
- How to choose the right LEDs and fixture materials for outdoor lighting - How to create fun and flexible landscape lighting More than 200 color photographs and diagrams demystify LEDs and illustrate how to use them in every room of the house. QR codes direct readers to the most up-to-date information, and an index and glossary make it a handy reference book.
