Pagoda Light Bulbs
I've been fascinated to see that chic hotels have embraced the "Radio" or "Marconi" light bulb for sconces in hallways and elevator lobbies. I just discovered these pagoda light bulbs that come in both candelabra and standard base. They are antique reproductions and come in smoked glass. I am interested to see the effect these will have in a pair of sconces or a chandelier. This looks like a fabulous way to create a Chinoiserie look with existing fixtures. If it works half as well for a Chinoiserie touch as the the Radio bulbs do in creating a vintage vibe, this could be amazing. I'll keep you posted.
