Happy Birthday to the Lightbulb

‘Thomas Edison’s first successful test of a long-lasting carbon filament took place on October 22, 1879.’ A discovery that has changed the very way we live and engage in our environments. A source of light, functioning beyond the expected, visually warming a room, and providing a focal point. Bulbrite‘s introduction of the Nostalgic light bulb collection is beautiful indeed. With eye catching and intricate filament designs, they can be used both indoors and out. Spectacular enlightenment.
