Q: I will soon be getting a Poulsen PH5 lamp for my dining room (hooray!). I'd like to get it the right height above the table. I like plenty of light to read, eat, and work, but on the table, not glaring into my eyes. (Hate ceiling lights, love task lighting.) There must be some kind of guidelines, like the algorithm for hanging pictures. Thanks! Sent by Joanne Editor: Leave your suggestions for Joanne in the comments — thanks! • Got a question?
