Abstract: Those who have become aware of the quantity and quality of light needed for seeing when performing the various activities in the home as well as for retaining the beauty and vitality of home decoration realize that lighting needs and lighting practices are in many instances separated by a wide gulf. This is well expressed in these statements made by people in the lighting industry: . . . Most of us . . . have used lighting merely to chase away darkness .... Recent surveys indicate that the average American home contains seventeen to eighteen lamp bulbs without a pattern to the lighting or, for that matter, much reason. Proper decoration and utility require sixty or more lamp bulbs and tubes skillfully organized and integrated in a living-decorating plan.
