The Story Behind It

The Edison Light Bulb: The Lasting Endurance of Design

In 1879, Thomas Edison invented the carbon-based filament light bulb, which could burn brightly for up to 13.5 hours. Later swapping carbon-based filament for enduring tungsten filament, he created the commercial incandescent light bulb, which could burn for over 1,200 hours. By 1883, Edison's company, General Electric, pioneered the first overhead electrical lighting system that would eventually bring electricity to street lamps.

Like other inventors of his time, Edison created a number of light bulb shapes and tweaked their brightness levels according to each task-specific need from the brilliant lighting needed for a living room space to the softer ambiance desired for a desktop. Incandescent light bulbs remain present in households today. Known for their vintage-inspired, one-of-a-kind glow, they shine beautifully when exposed on pendant, floor or table lamps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome looking light bulb This is an awesome looking light bulb and looks really cool when it's lit up. Used this on a brass goose neck lamp I have that does not have a shade. Leaving the shade off gives it that Industrial/Steam Punk look. May 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful Glow AM loving this bulb in our kitchen. It has a beautiful amber glow. Planning to purchase 2 more for bedside lamps. February 27, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Very cool, but at a COST I shopped around on Amazon for an Edison light bulb, but the ones at World Market were priced just as reasonable. I read some reviews on Amazon and saw some comments about energy use, but it wasn't until I got my first electric bill after I got the light bulb that I fully understood how much energy these things use! It's staggering. I knew I was going to be getting this for primarily looks, but buyer beware, that you will see it in your monthly statement. I bought this bulb for a lamp that I had on almost every evening for a couple of hours. Just by doing this, my electricity bill doubled. Now, even though I love the look, I will only have this on sparingly. February 26, 2014
