We were at a friend's house the other day and couldn't stop playing with the hot, new dimmers she had installed in her kitchen. There is a 10 second fade-to-off so you don't get stuck in the dark when leaving the room, and tiny LEDs show where you are dimmed to. These are by Maestro for Lutron and they make the light glide into lightness or darkness. super sexy. Super pleasing to the eye.
