You're probably familiar with Edison bulbs whether you know them by name or not. They're those retro looking bulbs you see in restaurants and coffee shops all over the place. The kind that are designed to look like some of the first light bulbs made.
Of course today's Edison bulbs are (usually) made with tungsten filaments rather than carbon filaments (though we carry a pricier bulb with a true carbon filament).
And then there are there are LED Edison bulbs, which try to capture the feel of incandescent Edisons while saving a bunch of energy. Our opinion? Most LED imports do a poor job of this. You can check out the video on our LED Edison bulbs page to see how the ones we carry do a better job.
But LED Edison bulbs generally use several straight LED filaments to create their effect, while some of the art to the traditional bulbs was the looping style of the incandescent filaments. Here are a few of the basic forms you'll find. We carry them here starting at $3.25.
