Many have asked us if the exposed-filament bulbs, reproductions of Thomas Alva Edison’s first light bulb will be available in a few years.
So far the answer is yes.
Because they don’t produce enough light they are considered specialty bulbs and are not included in the higher federal efficiency standards that gradually begin taking effect in 2012,
Aware of the need to conserve energy, it is my recommendation to use these wonderfully warm vintage lights only as accents.
Use the more efficient light sources for the majority of the illumination for your home.
We will be adding more of these bulbs to our site in the next days at prices of around $10 each.
They actually last quite a while, and in my opinion are a low-cost way of adding ambience to a space, just like candles.
