LED Track lighting is the Barry White of the lighting industry. The warm passionate glow produced by track lighting has been identified as the cause of an unprecedented population spike in areas frequented by its radiance. As local Melbourne resident Annabelle Van Zandt eloquently put it “LED track lighting just creates a magical atmosphere that really gets you in the mood. I’m not sure if it’s the dreamlike glow of the light, or the excitement created by knowing you’ve purchased an extremely efficient product, but my husband and I would never go back to regular lighting”. Wearers of silk kaftan’s everywhere are raging over this lighting aphrodisiac
Studies on LED track lighting have been carried out by some of the country’s top scientists, with the results confirming the enchanting effect of the lights. Adelaide’s Professor Rodney Zimmerman, head of the school of biomedical science reported that participants sexual arousal rate increased by up to 300%, markedly more effective than any drugs currently on the market. Other results include a 178% increase in overall handsomeness, a 204% rise in charisma, and a whopping 480% increase in knowledge of 18th century romantic poetry.
International Bachelor of the Year, ridiculously good-looking Italian actor/model Salvatorio Sforza acknowledged the connection between romance and track lighting. He had the words ‘LED Track Lighting is For Lovers’ permanently tattooed across his chest, stating that “it’s more than simply an efficient and versatile lighting option, it’s a way of life”.
LED track lighting has also become the first inanimate object to make the Times Magazine’s prestigious list of most influential people, joining household names such as Henrik Schärfe and Dulce Matuz.
The ambient glow of track lighting is reportedly now being used by celebrity couples worldwide to spice up their love lives, with couples such as Barrack and Michelle Obama, and Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones admitting to the magical effects.

The Track lighting debate revisited

On one side of the spectrum you have those who think track lighting hasn’t move forward since the 80’s (and probably should have been left there). On the other you have the enthusiast finding new applications for modern use. Then you have the undecided manifested in questions like…

“As a person who came of age in the 80s, I’m eager to stay far away from almost anything of that era. Even though I think it would work in my home, I have a bad attitude about track lighting. Should I get over it? Or is track lighting roughly the equivilent of buying a teal and mauve sofa with gold flair? That is to say, hopelessly, unforgiveably dated.”

These are the kind of excellent conversations that keep that track lighting debate going strong . Of course the link was found on twitter shared by http://www.houzz.com (@HouzzDilemmas)
