tackled the much more obvious and simple question of light bulbs themselves, the classic form of which has remained essentially the same for ages.

The best part about it is that with the bulb as the center of attention you can transform an ordinary lighting fixture into a central artistic design object within a room, a much cheaper approach to home decor than buying a complicated ceiling light or clever table lamp. Best of all, these bulbs are relatively cheap, portable, replaceable and easy to install – and can be easily purchased at online home design stores including Charles & Marie.
