RIVERSIDE, NJ - Sea Gull Lighting, the leading manufacturer of more than 3,000 decorative and functional lighting and ceiling fan products, today launched a new addition to its flagship Ambiance® Lx Lighting Systems -- the Lx LED festoon. Now, consumers can bring the benefits of LED lighting into the home. The new Lx LED is affordable, energy-efficient and designed to fit into any décor.

Consumers continue to look for ways to be more energy and savings conscious. Replacing traditional xenon light bulbs with LEDs is an easy way to extend the life of existing lighting systems, lower replacement costs, and provide energy savings. The new Lx LED festoon delivers long life (35,000 hours+) and added energy efficiency (4x more efficient than conventional light sources), saving up to 92% on utility bills. The festoon light source is also dimmable with a standard dimming switch -- a feature not standard with many LED lamps. In addition, for those looking to retrofit an existing lighting system, the new Lx LED festoons simply snap into existing Ambiance Lx systems and many standard xenon systems in homes today.

"Until now, LED lighting was typically used outdoors because it did not meet the quality and design standards of indoor lighting," said Karl Zartarian, Director Ambiance Lighting Systems of Sea Gull Lighting. "We are excited to introduce this high performing LED festoon into the market, bringing the power of LED into the home without giving up beauty and design expected from lighting systems. This product provides the added long-life and energy efficient qualities of LED technology with the best quality and enhanced features previously seen with xenon such as dimmability, high color rendering, and high light output. Consumers are also able to retrofit LED into their existing under-the-counter and cove lighting systems, making it a snap to integrate LED into any home environment."

The Lx LED festoon light source is available in two color temperatures (warm white and cool white). It is best suited for task & accent lighting for under-the-cabinet, cove and toe-kick space lighting. The directional nature of LED is also ideal for in-cabinet lighting by reducing the glare of the light source.

For those retrofitting an existing system, the festoon will operate with magnetic transformers by simply snapping in a replacement lamp.
