Strings of Lights

The humble light bulb hanging from a wire. There was a time when that was considered the crudest and harshest light...Think of Blanche DuBois how she had to put shades over all the lights in Stanley's and Stella's apartment.
Today with the sophistication of lighting, the humble light bulb is more an aesthetic and design statement. Elemental, early light technology, simple, effective and illuminates the evening so we can continue to work and play.

A closer look at these bulbs is some new and more efficient filament encased in the glass bulb we have come to see a design classic.

These lights are from the new collection of home ware from Toast.. have a look at their other lovely things for the autumn / winter. Like the light hanging over a lovely bed...
