Anyone know anything about lighting?
I've been looking for some small cheap pendent lights for my hallway and landings for ages, I've finally found some I like but they take an e14 bulb max 45 Watt, would they give off adequate light?

Should be fairly bright but it depends on the shade shape. Might not give much 'spread' if that makes sense.

I wouldn't of thought an ordinary 45 Watt bulb would be bright enough myself, but what about how these low watt led or halogen equivalents?

Any good recommendations for geometric pattern wool blankets - around the £100 mark?

Edit: Meant blankets!

I'm gettin the picture that Vitsoe is the only real option with modular, tough good lookin wall storage that's still in production. I will just pretend not to know it was designed by a filthy Kraut.

Only problem is I'm a renter and will be until my parents die I and can't fix it to walls.

I've seen it with stabiliser feet but still anchored to a wall? Then I've seen the cieling to floor poles, are those anchored into cielings?

Any help please?

Hmmm reading the literature the X posts are designed for the "compression" mounting style.

Only thing is it says that the top of the X post MUST be screwed into the cieling Sad

If I used the stabiliser feet you reckon I could get away with just using pressure and no screwing/drilling?

I'll be storing 500 CDs and 100 DVDs and 100 Laserdiscs to start, then the plan is to slowly buy more shelves as my A/V collection expands. Laserdiscs are heavy.

Can any owners with experience tell me if you reckon I'd get away with it using pressure and stabiliser feet only?

I wish HM would bring back CSS. I've heard of people gravity mounting CSS systems, just leaning them against a wall and using the load to stabilise it.

I'm really enjoying it. Lot of rubbish but some interesting ideas and some great properties.
Main presenter is very well dressed too.

Exactly what I did, heavy books etc and it was very sturdy. Even pulling it fairly hard didn't shift the system.

Google plan chest Shame, new ones are fairly pricey but you might be able to find a second hand one for a reasonable cost.

*Just wanna add that this is one of my favourite threads on here Cool , got nothing to contribute mind!

A new chair, the old imac broke down and was replaced with a TV which will go on the wall with the Genelecs.
