When I talk to people about LED lights, the response is often the same: “That’s very exciting. LEDs are really cool. But they’re so expensive.” While you can say the prices of LEDs are going down, and you can promise that once you buy an LED it will save loads of energy, this doesn’t change the fact that many LED lights and light fixtures still cost a pretty penny.

But finally, LEDs are becoming less expensive. Today, you can buy a high quality LED A lamp for well under $50, and many kinds of LED fixtures for around that price as well. For today’s blog post, I’ve come up with a list of my 10 favorite LED task lights that cost less than 60 bucks each.  If you’ve never used an LED light fixture before, give one of these a whirl and I’m sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

    I am in the process of having a custom made display cabinet for ar glass vases
    Most pieces are translucent but not transparent or opaque, so I am trying to get the natural color of the colored glass enchanced by the lighting solution
    The pieces are 6 to 14 inches high and I would display them in different shelves with walled niches, may be up to 2-3 pieces between dividing walls

    Thanks for the advice

      Hi Herman, I would suggest taking a look at our display case lighting section of our website – http://www.pegasuslighting.com/showcase-lighting.html

      There are many, many options for highlighting items in a display. For your glass vases, I would suggest a halogen light fixture – perhaps a mini recessed light or a puck light.
