More and more people are turning to antique filament bulbs to give their home a decorative edge.
Vintage and antiques won’t go amiss in many interior designed houses dependant on the look wanted and now there are bulbs available in their former styles originally created by Thomas Edison.
At the London Design Festival designers made the bulb the stand out part of their design instead of having it hidden by decorative fixtures.
The Crompton antique range were designed with hotels and restaurants in mind to give the interiors a classy vintage look. Another reason people prefer these bulbs, is the light is a brighter more yellow colour which people think provides a more inviting and relaxing vibe.
As well as a vintage look, filament bulbs provide a more ‘rough and tough’ masculine look as opposed to pearlised candle bulbs and jewelled sconces. An antique bulb is perfect for whichever look you’re after whether it’s the bare minimum masculine look or the elegant vintage ambience.
Old fashioned bulbs with their brighter and warm light are also preferred in Chandeliers or pendant lighting.
