Hi, and thanks for this forum and all the info on your website. Very helpful and useful to us novices. We're planning a kitchen/living room re-do in our very small house, wanting lighting that meets the requirements of two very different sets of eyes, bright ambient light for husband who likes things bright, and absolutely no glare for wife whose eyes are super-sensitive to glare.
I'm hoping that your adjustable T4 and/or T5 bulbs might provide at least a partial answer to both our needs, with those nifty pivoting adjustable light shields to hopefully keep the direct light out of my eyes .
There are several locations, such as over the sink and perhaps over the kitchen table, where a hanging lamp might be efficient and useful, but I'd want one with a light baffle or louvers to protect my eyes from the brightness of the bulb at all angles. Do you know of a lamp with baffles or louvers? We have a family "heirloom" lamp, a nice old white metal hanging lamp, dome-shaped top, with 3 incandecsent bulbs and a translucent concentric baffle/louver flat bottom, that makes an ideal light source for us, but seems to be so out of style that nothing similar is available that I've been able to find. Any sugggestions in that direction?
