Bet you never thought you’d see those two words in the same line let alone with an exclamation mark! What is this world coming to?!? Recently, Plumen has come up with a designer energy-saving, light bulb. OK-didn’t think I’d ever see those two words together either–ok, ok–three words, count ’em: 1) designer, 2) energy, 3) saving… The Plumen bulb uses 80% less energy and lasts 8 x longer than your normal incandescent bulb, and the Kelvins are at 2700, which is exactly what you want if you are looking for an energy efficient yet warm, non traditional fluorescent bulb. It also looks like a mini air sculpture! How can you pass that up!
Right now it runs just under $39.00 per bulb. Seems expensive? Not if you ever have to change it, run to the store to get more (gas consumption), not to mention your incredibly worthwhile time, AND less frustration for the fact your bulbs aren’t burning out right before that big party you have planned! Unfortunately, it is not available in the US yet–boo, hoo, hoo… However, do not fret–we only have to wait until the end of April for its arrival. Sorry, I know this sounds like an endorsement, right? No, I am just super duper excited as I have been very nervous about the whole non-usage of incandescent bulbs in a few years, what with color, enjoyment of environment, and healthy-looking clients being a huge factor in my design work not to mention aesthetics! Yikes!
Look at these fun installations!
