We all love adding a special touch to our home, creating an environment which expresses our personality and creating a bold statement with our design choices. Vintage filament bulbs are a great way to personalize a lamp or wall light. The light they produce is a beautiful low orange haze twirl inside a stunning glass bulb. These bulbs look like the first bulbs ever invented by Thomas Edison in 1879.
Filament bulb are similar to modern bulbs in that they use the same end caps. The difference between vintage and modern is the size and shape of the glass, the design of the actual filament inside and the amount of light they give. Vintage filament bulbs have much longer filament wire which is wrapped around the inside of the glass in swirls and curls. The glass comes in many shapes and sizes and the amount of light is greatly reduced to expose the filament wire. Combine the shape of the glass, the long filament and low light and you have a beautiful bulb to make a feature in any room.

Vintage bulbs make a great addition for wall lights without a lamp shade and similar free standing lamps. The visual effect of seeing the low glow of the filament is the appeal of having these bulbs, there are many to chose from each having its own inner filament twirls and curls and glass shape.
Fitting these bulbs are as easy as installing modern bulbs and require no special adapter as they fit in all normal light fittings.
