The next type of home lighting that we want to consider is called task lighting, and this is an area where many home lighting designs are found to be insufficient. The purpose of task lighting is to help illuminate a specific area for a certain kind of task that will be performed there. For instance, if there is a reading area in a room, it would be very appropriate to have either a floor lamp or a table lamp positioned very close to the seating arrangement with the correct bulb wattage to ensure that a person will be able to read comfortably not only for a few minutes, but even for a prolonged period of time. Once again, this is where many home lighting designs fall short. Quite often, many folks expect a general lighting fixture for each room to be sufficient for the tasks that are performed there.
Enameled glass, crystalline glass and multi-colored glass were further developments that added to the aesthetics of lighting fixtures. At the same time came the evolution of the mirrors and beads that were initially exported in the fourteenth century to the luxurious lighting pieces found today, mainly lamps and chandeliers. Glass-makers were so revered for their art that they were given position in society. For example, glass-makers were permitted to carry swords, they were protected from prosecution and they even made their way into Venetian high-society. Such privileges were well-earned as they possessed a unique skill that created covetous pieces of art that left the world in awe.
