Decorative bulbs

Thanks to modern technology, the incandescent bulb remains as popular as ever (despite the 2008 EU ban). LED bulbs are now available in various versions, including ones inspired by the old-fashioned incandescent bulb. Choose between big and small, clear and colourful, modern and vintage bulbs—all with the advantage of being made with LED.

The bulb—otherwise known as a light source or light bulb—does more than just add light to the room. It contributes a decorative, industrial, and cosy expression. Give your décor a touch of personality with a filament bulb, globe bulb, vintage bulb, or big bulbs with filaments.

The beautiful touch of a decorative bulb

The technology itself is not the only thing that has come a long way. These days, bulbs are available in various shapes, colours, and sizes. The decorative bulb isn’t strictly practical as it also contributes a decorative touch. It has a great impact on the overall expression of the lamp—and in some cases, the bulb is the expression itself. The decorative bulb can be used anywhere, and it’s perfect for creating a cosy light. The atmospheric lighting is particularly desirable in living rooms and bedrooms, where you go to relax and recharge. Combine your lighting with a sculptural and artistic expression that highlights your personal style and makes you feel at home.

In recent years, naked light bulbs have become popular, and the pendant suspension has had a trendy makeover as a result. As Scandinavian minimalism has found its way into interior design, simple lighting solutions have grown in popularity. This is particularly true of the ‘bulb lamp’, which is simple a bulb with a cable as seen in private homes and public spaces alike. The simple solution has an honest and straightforward expression that fits into all environments. Pair it with a decorative bulb that suits your home. It looks wonderful alone, in pairs, or in a cluster of decorative bulbs.

There are many different pendant suspensions out there, and there’s something for every style and atmosphere. The common denominator is a discreet look that works with the naked light source to add a minimalist and industrial touch to your décor. Find our range of pendant suspensions here

Globe bulbs

The big decorative globe bulb is open used with a free-hanging socket. With a typical diameter of 10-12 cm, the bulb is spherical—hence the name. There’s a globe bulb for every interior design style imaginable, whether it’s a modern version with colourful glass, a distinct pattern, and a dimmer feature or an LED globe bulb with a vintage look inspired by the visible filaments and warm glow of the incandescent bulb.

Modern alternatives to the incandescent bulb

Most people are familiar with the old-fashioned incandescent bulb. The warm light has helped bring a cosy atmosphere into thousands of homes over the past 100 years. Because of its massive energy consumption, the incandescent bulb has since been replaced by LED technology. With a mere 2-4 watts, as opposed to the 40-60 watts of the incandescent bulb, LED bulbs are far more environmentally and financially friendly. The LED light bulb also lasts much longer. Most LED bulbs last for 25,000-30,000 hours, as opposed to the 1,000 hours of the incandescent bulb. Depending on where and how the bulb is used, 1,000 hours equals to roughly one year. So, the LED bulb might be more expensive, but it earns back the investment within the first year.

When we started working on alternatives to the incandescent bulb, the energy-saving light bulb was created. However, the colour rendering was significantly worse than that of the incandescent bulb, so it wasn’t a success. On top of that, the energy-saving light bulb took longer to reach full brightness, which was frustrating when you needed light immediately. It was quickly replaced by the LED bulb. Not only does it reproduce the colour rendering of the incandescent bulb to perfection, but LED technology also brings with it a host of other opportunities. Some are dimmable, and others allow you to adjust the temperature.
