Reading Lamps Floor. ''THE problem with lighting today is the fact that lights are so specific, '' says Paul Marantz, the lighting consultant at Jules Fisher & Paul Marantz Inc. in Manhattan. ''The glowing light that Grandma's silk-shaded floor and lamps provided made good reading through light. But this kind of light is no longer in fashion. ''
The answer to finding a good reading light fixture is not necessarily to re-create Grandma's parlor. The key is to understand what makes the eye comfortable as well as least fatigued when looking at and then to place a light with the obligation shade and bulb in the appropriate height and position.
