Contemporary Lighting by Sebastian Conran and Mark Bond
Lighting has a crucial effect on any room. Deciding how to light a home or office requires decisions about the desired atmosphere, the preference for functional as opposed to ambient lighting, and the possibilities for enhancing the décor. This illuminating manual from two renowned designers will help you make these choices and select the best solutions from the wide and changing range available today. Starting with the basics, like the distinction between halogen and fluorescent bulbs, and how down-lighting differs from spot-lighting, this designer resource examines all kinds of fixtures in detail. Whatever your requirements—from information about individual items that inspire or a whole scheme that brings a room to life—you’ll get the help to analyze your needs and identify how to meet them.
