Lately we've noticed a resurgent love affair with the lightbulb. Whether it's unique shades acting as a glowing showcase or the bare bulbs themselves, we dig this look. Here, we've pulled together nine of our current favorites that really let their light shine.
The Knot Pendant Lamps come in two different designs of hand blown glass shades, each supported by a monkey fist knot tied from brightly colored cable in five color selections. We love how versatile the lamps are as they can be displayed in an illuminating cluster, line, or alone creating a single ambient glow.
These pressed glass pendants by Tom Dixon are each made by compressing molten glass into a hollow mould which is then annealed in a kiln. This process creates small variations in each shade and we love the way the glass distorts the light.
This gold-plated metal, hand made Murano glass globe was designed by Guenther Leuchtmann in 1981 for the restaurant "Le tre streghe" (The three witches) in Hamburg. We absolutely love it's unique and almost gypsy-cystal-ball-like quality.
Taking inspiration from the delicate craftsmanship of crystal cutting, the Crystal Bulb combines industrial influences with decorative qualities, transforming the everyday light bulb into an ornamental light fitting. In the right setting the Crystal Bulb, while very antique looking, can be quite modern and certainly enchanting.
