The problem I see is when an one of the LEDs go out, it will happen, and then what, replace the whole shade? It won't be convenient in the long run, at least not how it's being portrayed. Having a light socket is easier, you unscrew it and you put a new bulb in. Adding LEDs to a wall or ceiling have the same possible problem. So I say it would be nice to think about lighting a house in a new way, but there needs to be a lot more thought put into it than what is being portrayed in the picture and in the article as a whole.
