Love It Or Leave It: Soft Touch Light Dimmers

The Essential Wall Dimmers offer a new and colorful way to adjust the lights in your home. All you have to do is tap on the tufted textile sensor and it turns on, off or dims your lights. Each dimmer is handcrafted in Seattle, WA from Designtex wool felt, conductive yarns, neoprene, and acrylic. The electronic fibers are embedded directly into the material, so there are no hidden buttons or switches in the fabric. I like the idea for playrooms and even a funky, mod family room or game room. What do you think?

My wife and I just finished we we believe to be the worlds greatest Winnie the Pooh kids room. With all the bad economy and doom and gloom we thought it might cheer others up and get them inspired to create their own special place. Check us out!

I thought it was great at first ... but after reading the article and looking more closely at them, I'm not so sure. I have to say, not in my house - it just go with my decor at all!

I agree with PerfectScore! Only in a child's bedroom. I'd be impressed with any interior decorator who could make these look chic.

I think this is really cute! I have these, minus the colors and the fuzy-ness. It's just a plain silver pad, and yes, people DO get confused on how to turn it on! Once they figure it out, they tend to go overboard and start fooling around =p

Haha yeah, so many people would be at a loss when trying to figure out how to turn the lights on and off

love it - the colours especially but these are way cooler looking than the boring Lutron brand ones, although those ones do come in diff. colours as well, they're just light-switch looking.
