Traditional Lighting

Traditional Lighting

There is so much lighting on the market to choose from, sometimes it can be overwhelming. The main and major choice is to choose between traditional or contemporary lighting. Once that decision has been made, it will make many other decisions easier – there will still be multiple decisions to make, but they won’t be as hard because you will have already narrowed your choices down majorly.

So, what are the differences between contemporary and traditional chandeliers and why is this choice so important? The style of chandelier you choose is essential because it can make or break the rest of your room. It is absolutely essential that you choose a fixture that compliments the room. Classical chandeliers work well in antique rooms that might feature a lot of wood and large paintings. This would reflect that of a stately home with a vintage feel. In a similar way, contemporary chandeliers would complement white, light and modern rooms with a more minimal feel. Another difference between the two types of chandeliers are what they are made of; traditional ones are usually made from brass; gold and classical materials, whereas contemporary chandeliers can be made from a number of different materials such as chrome, rubbed bronze or wrought iron.

Vintage Filament Bulbs

Filament bulbs are the go-to answer at the moment. Due to their vintage feel, if you are unsure what style of lighting you’d want, filament bulbs can help. The beauty of filament bulbs is that they can add further vintage effect to a traditional chandelier or a twist to a contemporary chandelier. The careful choice of bulbs really does make a difference to the fixture.

It has only been recently that filament bulbs have been allowed to be sold again. Incandescent light bulbs, which looked very similar to Edison light bulbs or filament bulbs used to be so popular, however sadly they were banned due to their lack of energy efficiency and the hazards they caused. The reproduction of filament bulbs has caused such a stir, and due to them being under the new EISA regulations it is possible to sell and produce them again. There is so much that can be said about filament bulbs. Their popularity is so high because they create the same effect as Incandescent light bulbs without being dangerous; they are more energy efficient while producing the same desired vintage look.

To increase their popularity even more, they are also available in LED’s, meaning they will save even more energy without losing any of the vintage ambiance and effect. There hasn’t been complete positivity towards the bulbs however as they have been received with some controversy due to the fact that they cost more, and ultimately aren’t as effective because the filament has a warmer glow. This shouldn’t matter in the long run because of their high energy efficiency; they are much more cost effective because they last longer and save you money on your energy bill.

Filament bulbs come in different shapes and sizes – making them appealing because they can have so many uses due to the variety of shapes they come in. The glass that houses the filament can also come in different tints which would change the purpose and effect the bulbs themselves give off. These variations in the bulbs are also what contribute to their high level of popularity. If you search online for filament bulbs, the search will bring back so many different types of filament bulbs for different effects and different purposes, a short list of them are – short tube, oval light, pear shape, squirrel cage, small globe, large globe, classic Edison, long tube, mini tube and candle bulb. These will all be available in different cap fittings and some can be purchased as LED’s which some people might find intimidating. A s long as you are aware of the purpose you want to use them for and the cap fitting you need, you should be fine.

It is LED filament candle bulbs that are especially popular in the use of chandeliers; they are Omni-directional and give off an antique feel with their warm yellow glow (2200-2400k). What makes them so attractive is the long winding of their internal filaments – they are different, antique and unique. It is becoming more common that they are being used in restaurants for atmospheric lighting – “vintage chic” is the look many want to have and with the use of LED filament bulbs many achieve it. The market for LED filament bulbs is constantly growing, with there being different vintage fixtures to match the bulbs being made, as well as different coloured options of electrical flex to hang the lights from to achieve different effects is also becoming more popular.

Hanging the bulbs from electrical flex is the most common, most popular and arguably the most effective way to make use of these bulbs.
