Timeless Elegance

antique style edison ligh bulbThis is a really elegant and unique set of lightbulbs. You can use these for your more elegant fixtures or pair them with something more contemporary to create a style just right for you. When I first saw these I knew right away that I wanted them for something in my own home, even though I wasn’t sure exactly which special fixture would get a makeover with these.

If you don’t have a full sized chandelier, you will need to make sure beforehand that these will fit. The base of these is exactly like a common white lightbulb that would fit in any full size lamp or overhead light. If you can screw one of those plain white lightbulbs into the light fixture you want to use these in, they will work. I have a standing lamp chandelier that I thought about using these in, but it takes a smaller base than these.

I ended up using this set in the small chandelier over our dining room table. The difference between the chandelier bulbs I had in there originally and these is very noticeable. The light is softer and it is interesting to look up and see the way the filament glows, almost like it is moving. If you haven’t seen one of these lights with an antique looking filament in them it is hard to explain so be sure to check out the images I added and my video.

Edison Style light bulbAdvantages:

✦ Unique look that really catches your eye
✦ Golden tint to the glass of the bulb diffuses the brightness of the bulb making it seem to glow
✦ Edison shaped (see images) filament creates an effect that seems to move
✦ Love the almost ice cream cone shape of the of the bulb itself
✦ 40 watt bulb; if your light switch or fixture has a dim switch already on it, you can dim these bulbs as low as 25 watts

Disadvantages:

✦ None – these work exactly as described and are even lovelier than I imagined they would be.

Recommendation:

✦ If you love antiques, reproductions, or vintage light fixtures these are the perfect bulb for you. These would also be great for the type of person who loves mixing old with new to create something unique. I actually thought of putting these in one of my son’s modern lamps before deciding that I would enjoy them best on something special. You could even just use a single bulb with no shade on a table lamp. The beauty is in the bulb itself; the light from the filament combined with the darker tint to the glass gives these bulbs a glow that is truly lovely.
