  St. Andrew from Savoy House: Savoy House’s St. Andrew Collection by design diva Karyl Pierce Paxton features warm, opaque glass with a decorative metal overlay and frame burnished in a Tortoise Shell finish. The Energy StarT-certified family also boasts the International Dark Sky Association's seal of approval. www.savoyhouse.com

  Brigantine from MaxLite: MaxLite designer Lynn Bray outfitted the company’s Brigantine Collection, seven distinctive fixtures in all, with 25W GU24 CFLs that work with any dimming switch.

SOLID STATE LIGHTING
 
  Cylindrium from Luximo: Luximo makes a stellar competition debut with Cylindrium, an adjustable LED-powered desk light that exceeds the Energy Star performance criteria with nine Cree LEDs, which together equal the light output of a 75W incandescent lamp. optic@frankshum.com
 
  Design Pro series from Kichler: Kichler’s low-profile Design Pro Series is capable of producing light for more than 40,000 hours in a standard configuration. The undercabinet fixture is composed of individual LED strips that snap together for easy installation and lots of customization potential. www.kichler.com
 
  LR4 from Cree: Following Cree's acquisition of LED Lighting Fixtures earlier this year, the Durham, NC-based company moved quickly to keep its innovative products in the LFT spotlight. Cree’s dimmable recessed LED fixture, LR4 (shown here), uses just 11 watts of energy. Cree also earned an honorable mention for its LR24 fixture. www.cree.com
