The suave aluminum shell of the LOTUS luminaire isn't just another pretty exterior. The casing is engineered to dissipate heat generated by the LED bulb, and a built-in switch allows users to control brightness with 6-watt, 11-watt, and 16-watt settings. Its maker, Journée, estimates that LOTUS uses up to 50 percent less energy than an incandescent bulb and should last 10 years. The fixture is Energy Star-rated and contributes toward LEED certification. Journée Lighting, 800.886.1880; www.journeelighting.com.

Affordable is a relative term. Take Bulthaup's system b1 modular kitchen. Starting at $18,000 (with many systems averaging $35,000), b1 would be considered pricey in some circles, but when compared to the company's signature b3 collection (which costs 35 percent to 40 percent more), it's a steal. The b1 even offers similar features, such as central islands, full-height architectural cabinetry, and overhead shelves with optional sliding doors. Other choices include lacquered doors, solid wood and stainless steel tops, and laminate or aluminum toekicks. Bulthaup Corp., 800.808.2923; www.bulthaup.com.
