shead some light on it - interior inspiration

lately there has been a bit of a to-do about the old edison filament lightbulb - its been popping up everywhere in the design world- and i would agree that there is a certain appeal

but instead of finding them overhead ive been intrigued with collections of them, tucked away in bookshelves or out on desk tops and counters. screwed into the very old porcelain style sockets they become more like works of art than an electrical crisis ....

illuminating no?

  1. I have also been really thinking about lightbulbs, but usually hanging in groups. I hadn't thought about those same collections of shelf...great idea!
