Amid confusion, decorators fear a phaseout

An article in the New York Times sheds light on how some high-end designers view energy rules governing the use of incandescent light bulbs.

The article states that anxiety and stockpiling are some of the results of legislation designed to save energy by phasing out certain incandescent light bulbs, and phasing in compact fluorescent light bulbs.

However, many are confused by the rules of The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, which calls for a series of rolling deadlines between 2012 and 2014 to make bulbs more efficient. It does not ban the use or manufacture of all incandescent bulbs.
