All great info! Would love to hear what your take is on xenon or halogen? LED's just still feel very anemic to me with regard to the amount of lumens produced. I have yet to see an LED fixture that I felt confident to spec for a client.

Totally agree with harnessing natural light sources...I personally have 2 windows and 2 Solatubes in my kitchen. Love that I hardly ever need to turn on the lights during sunny Phoenix days.-
