CFL Light Bulbs

If every American replaced just one light bulb with an ENERGY STAR qualified bulb, we would save enough energy to light more than 3 million homes for an entire year, save more than $600 million in annual energy costs, and prevent greenhouse gases equivalent to the emissions of more than 800,000 cars.

Light Therapy

Artificial sunlight is found useful in treating and preventing Seasonal Affective Disorder (also known as winter depression, which brings about depressive symptoms specifically in winter), and delayed sleep phase syndrome, in which the circadian (day vs night) rhythm is disturbed, and the individual tends to fall asleep at the same time much after midnight.

Full Spectrum (Natural) Light

Full Spectrum lighting attempts to emulate the beneficial wavelengths found in sunlight, which are necessary for peak health. Full Spectrum lighting is the choice of smart employers looking to maximize workplace efficiency.

Green Lighting

Many people believe that at least some of the current environmental challenges are linked to energy use. Fossil fuels used to generate electricity are known to pollute the environment. Part of the solution to the problem may be found in the use of "green" or energy efficient lighting. Green lighting is good for the environment and easy on the wallet because the more energy saved, the less money is needed to pay for it.

The choices of green lighting include artificial sunlight that can be used as a remedy for winter depression when the days are shorter. Another green lighting choice is full spectrum lighting which creates an effect similar to natural sunlight. Beyond that, Energy Star has predicted that if people in the U.S. were to trade five of their inefficient lamps with Energy Star approved lamps, greenhouse gases can be dramatically reduced.

Energy Star fixtures come in a variety of styles that can be purchased at the lowest prices from LampsUSA. Energy efficient replacement lamps and bulbs are also available at the best prices around at LampsUSA.

Buyer's Guides - Restoration Style Tips
Restoration Style was derived from Charles II after he was restored to the throne of England in 1660. During this period a big richness was noted in English design, architecture and art. Upon his return from the Netherlands and France he and his followers brought with them the latest European styles. 

Take a trip back to 1920's Venice with delicate milk glass sconces in your powder room, or the regal elegance of an embellished Victorian crystal chandelier in your staircase or foyer. Bring a taste of medieval Europe to your dining room with a dramatic round iron chandelier. Most Vintage style collections span throughout time including ceiling lights, pendants, sconces, chandeliers and bathroom fixtures, as well as floor lamps and table lamps.

Consider the Use

Reading lamps need a wider shade to provide plenty of light. 

Consider the Room - What is the color and style of your room? Will the lamp have a starring role or compliment its surroundings?

Consider the Bulb
Be sure you have 2-3 inch separation from bulb to shade, especially for higher wattage bulbs. Be sure the top opening is wide enough to vent the heat. Compact Fluorescent bulbs are great for most lamps because they burn cooler, but you may need larger harp since CFL's are taller than standard light bulbs.
