Our Edison range includes Edison bulbs and a variety of lamp shades that require Edison bulbs to work as beautiful Edison lights. You’ll find pendant, enamel and cage shades along with wall sconces and table lamps. Edison lights take their name after Thomas Edison, a man who made great contributions to electric light bulbs in the 19th century. He experimented with filament material that would help a bulb last longer before burning out (you could say it was his bright idea). Edison lights carry on being a popular lighting choice today despite the emergence of more energy-efficient bulbs. This is due to their aesthetic appeal as they have an antique-look and provide a gentle glow – useful for lighting up small areas. They can also be used as industrial lamps in areas that don’t require a lot of light.
