#LED #TBT

Our COO Ayn recently unearthed some photos from her childhood – a large part of which was spent in the offices of Light Waves Concept (the mostly-halogen predecessor to our current LED track lighting and cable kits). We couldn’t pass up this opportunity to share a couple of these throwback moments in New York City lighting history.

Here we see lighting specialist Charlie with specialist-in-training Ayn.

“hey charlie? don’t you think these lights could one day be, i dunno, longer lasting and energy efficient?”

The LED Waves showroom looks very different now, as we’ve hopped over to Brooklyn and shifted focus away from the decorative lighting market. But we like that, despite being decorative, that red downlight fixture from the ’80s bears a resemblance to a modern, industrial downlight: the Andromeda LED high bay.

Another similarity can be found in this action shot of Teddy (RIP old boy) strolling through the Light Waves Concept office, alongside Willow, who now resides over LED Waves.

Willow, right, models an LED T8 tube, while Teddy models his boss self.

While our love of dogs remains the same, our passion for lighting has grown as LED technology emerged and continues to change the game, improving our quality of life – and quality of light – beyond baby Ayn’s wildest dreams.

Happy Lunar New Year from LED Waves

Today marks the start of the Year of the Horse in the lunar calendar. For the next 15 days, much of the Eastern world will uphold this holiday’s special traditions – including birthday parties for everyone, observing specific days to see (and to avoid) your relatives, and not taking out the trash.

What this means for the lighting industry is that all manufacturing and exporting operations of LED luminaires and components are grinding to a halt in China. For LED Waves here in Brooklyn, it’s a different story. We can still do things like take your orders, customize your LED light strips with onsite cutting and soldering services, and ship you anything from our warehouse.

In honor of this Lunar New Year, we present this installation photo from one of our horse-loving customers in Massachusetts.

This ceiling of the stable is studded with Andromeda fixtures.

Thanks to the bright, daylight-like qualities of this LED high bay, this year – and many more to follow – will indeed be the year of the horse. From all of us at LED Waves, we wish you a happy Lunar New Year.

New! Owl Outdoor LED Wall Pack Installation Photos

You asked and we delivered – with the help of some satisfied customers! User-submitted nighttime photos of the 100W and 200W Owl Outdoor LED Wall Packs are now posted online. Read the latest story in our Showcase to learn how these flood lights are performing beyond the expectations of one Ohio family (and their dogs).

The Owl Packs are the first outdoor rated (IP65) items from our line of LED lights made in the USA. Since we operate out of a mixed-use building in New York City, we’re unfortunately unable to install photograph these products onsite here. That’s why we really appreciate photos and stories from you guys who are (literally) out in the field.

HP_banner800-owlpack_ver2_01We hope you find these photos illuminating, and we invite you to share your own Owl Pack experience via email to expos@ledwaves.com. If we use your story and/or high-resolution photos (+300 dpi), we’ll thank you with one free Owl Pack of equal or lesser value – OR, if you prefer, a credit you can apply to any future order. And of course, we will not share any of your personally identifying information.

So, for all you budding Ansel Adams: Get those cameras out and help LED Waves save the planet, one Owl Pack at a time!

20% off Clearance LED Lights: One More Week!

From all of us at LED Waves, we’d like to thank our customers for helping us clear out some of the lights we’ve added to our Clearance section. We’ve decided to extend this 20% off sale for another week! Enter coupon code WAVES at checkout to apply the Waves of Savings discount to any already reduced item, now through Monday, August 26th, 2013.

Waves of Savings.Clearance.LA LED MR16The best part of this LED clearance sale is getting some of our old favorites into the hands (and light sockets, ceilings, building exteriors, etc.) of smart shoppers across the country! This includes the Los Angeles™ MR16 LED Light Bulb.

A <5W replacement for a 35W halogen spotlight, the LA was the first MR16 from our in-house line of LED bulbs made in the USA. It’s been replaced by the brighter CA™ MR16 (<7W, replaces 50W halogen); but we’re still very proud of its design and performance.

Thanks again for shopping at LEDWaves.com. We love knowing that our LED bulbs – both the newest developments and the items in Clearance – are finding homes in your homes!
