Before Christmas, I spent a morning in London with the Philips team and architect, George Clarke, talking all things lighting. In particular, how to best light a family home. Once upon a time (and not so far back that I can't remember, unfortunately), British homes adopted two main forms of lighting ... a 'big light' in every room, and the odd lamp here and there, more than likely situated in the living room and perhaps in the bedroom. If you were fancy, you had a dimmer switch. Oh, the sophistication!
