"Charlie Palmer, the creator of a national hospitality empire who featured the lights in 1994 at his Flatiron district restaurant Alva said he recently dissuaded a designer from using them in a new space. “That happened 20 years ago,” he recalled saying. “It’s been done.” NYT
At Kimberlee Jaynes Interior Designs we have been using these warm glowing lights for many years and thought they might be heading the way of the dinosaur.But know it seems each year they rage on in popularity!
I remember when I took a marketing class the instructor told us that Nostalgia was one of the many "hooks" used to grab a persons attention. Edison light bulbs give us that cozy Old World feel.
For the most part they have been incandescent energy suckers,that is changing! LED Edison's are being perfected to give the same Low Glow that made us fall in love with them in the first place.YAY! So I'll keep using them...how about you?
