HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, July 21, 2009 5 Leading lights HOMELIVING » ADVERTISING FEATURE Energy-efficient LED lighting saves up to 70 per cent in power use compared to some other lighting products. Producing a high light output (white) and running at safe-to-touch low temperatures, Nimbus LED.next lighting requires no maintenance and has a long life of up to 50,000 hours. Nimbus LED.next lighting can be installed in almost any commercial or residential location and can be suspended from, or mounted on, any surface, including concrete, steel, laminate or wood. Advanced LED technology has also been applied to create motion-sensitive dimming for ceiling lighting, a slimline desk lamp, and a range of waterproof lighting designed for bathrooms and outdoors. Koda Lighting managing director Phil McCall says Nimbus LED.next is changing the lighting world. ''Being green is no longer just a trend,'' he says. ''In the current global environment, cost savings and sustainability are what Australians are now demanding in their everyday lives.'' With the Federal Government phasing out the sale of standard incandescent light bulbs by the end of this year, there is a rapidly increasing demand for green and energy-efficient lighting solutions. Nimbus LED.next lighting is 100 per cent recyclable and contains no mercury. It has won the approval of the Green Building Council of Australia, the Clean Energy Council, and Gecko (the environmental sustainability agency).

Amber Tiles exclusive new Doga series combines all the elegance and natural warmth of timber with the technical performance and contemporary style of porcelain stoneware. Amber Tiles interior specialist Kate Lane says timber flooring has a unique ability to add character to a room, imbuing it with warmth. ''Add to this the durability and sleek consistency of porcelain, and an artistic colour palette not typically available in timber, and the new Doga range is enough to tempt just about any home renovator,'' Ms Lane says. Direct from a recent tile festival in Italy, the Doga porcelain series combines a sense of historical elegance with distinctly modern chic style. These tiles are available in long boards of 225mmx900mm. ''Doga is no doubt one of the most unique products on the market this season,'' Ms Lane says. ''It is truly modern, yet retains an air of authenticity, being a perfect choice for bathrooms and living areas.'' Doga tiles retail from $132 per square metre.
