Edison Incandescents Inspire New Classics

Lisa Stewart Design Edison Light Bulb 2

“I never did a day’s work in my life, it was all fun.” Thomas Edison.

Inspired by the genius of Edison, this new lighting design trend has fun and historic artistry written all over it. The luminescence and amber-orange glow of original 1910 Edison-style filament bulbs cast a mood-setting ambient light in either reproduction or modern light fixtures. This is a lighting style worth considering in spite of reports that incandescent light bulbs will someday be replaced by LED’s. My hope is that these bulbs will still be available for the discerning consumer willing to invest in the high end classic look that reflects a by-gone era with charm of the past.
