I've always wanted to swop out the light over our dining table to be dimmable so we could have appropriate lighting as required..
I found LED bulbs that are dimmable but I'd need to install a dimmer switch instead of a single throw switch.... so it became a project basically shelved as my switches are all ganged.
Then I found Philips (Depo Bangunan) make a scene-switch 9W bulb which has three dimming functions. It is done by simply switching my current switch on-off to get hi-beam; on-off again to get medium and on-off again to get low. Great!!!
Only problem is they only had cool daylight and I would prefer warm white...if anyone sees a warm white I'd appreciate a shout.

White, indeed. If your preference is dim yellow, shop in Beijing, rather than DC.

The one thing is I don't think you need dimmable senators ...they are pretty dim to start with. As in not the brightest bulb in the pack.

hehehe..Ok S&P I get it...my edit could have been more explicit and was referring to light-bulbs but I can now see some member's minds automatically wander.... but you know what they say, 'dirty minds dirty thoughts'...
