A Bright Evolution

slider1ex-920x389Have you been thinking about simple ways you can improve your home? A feature light fixture just might do the trick!

I am sure that when the brilliant minds (I won’t specify names as we all know that there is controversy there – and lets face it they were all brilliant) who first came up with the idea of the lightbulb set their minds to work they had no idea that it would evolve from a utilitarian product into a show stopping, mood setting, piece of art that we all hang from our ceilings and walls.

The evolution of the light bulb (and it’s associated encasement) is really quite extraordinary. We’ve come from nothing more then a wood stand with brass knobs and a glass tube with a carbon filament in the 1800s (incandescent) to fluorescent in the early 1900’s, halogen in the mid 1900’s and finally followed closely after by LED.

All the while we are exploring our creativity with the casings that surround these brilliant feats of science. There are so many options now available when it comes to lighting in your  home, and instead of being overwhelmed by them select the one you love looking at!
