Exposed bulb lighting is a design trend that just won’t budge. These minimalist, industrial-style fixtures are highly versatile, and can be used to light up a bar or the bedside.
The copper arc table lamp from CB2 retails online and in store for $79.95 CAD or $69.95 USD. Its steel frame is copper-plated, measuring 20 inches high and five inches wide. The lamp boasts a mint colored electric cord that you’ll actually want to show off. A compact florescent bulb is included, but CB2 sells a variety of vintage-looking filament, cut glass and globe light bulbs. The cut glass 40W light bulb, pictured above, is a work of art in itself. Lower wattage bulbs work best with exposed fixtures, as they emit a softer, more candle-like glow.
While purchasing trendy design items can be a risk, the copper arc table lamp’s affordable price tag makes it a bright idea for decorating your home or office.
