Designers use these crown bulbs when you want to light up out of the way places where they didn’t want or couldn’t fit a lampshade. These inventive bulbs that were once for handy and functional purposes, are now a creative and fun solution! The silver coating serves to totally block light from coming through, while reflecting it back towards the fixture and wall. But nowadays this glinting silver bulb is an eye catcher for purposes of creating a statement.
As vintage is all the rage in the design world right now, why not take the look as authentic as possible? These reproductions of Thomas Edison’s first light bulb is such a “must have” for many people because it creates a nostalgic ambiance. The lighting is so flattering because it emulates almost a soft golden candlelight and brings our minds back to a more romantic and simpler time.
The brand new NanoLeaf LED Bulb could indeed be the future of lightbulbs. Yes, they look totally different than any bulb you’ve seen, because that outside is actually a printed circuit board. However they still project light 360-degrees like an old-fashioned incandescent bulb with a nice warm white glow, but wow do they save you energy and money.
