Posted by Edison Ford Winter Estates On January 24th

While subtly changing over time, the design of Edison’s light bulb has become an iconic image of American innovation.

Today, Edison bulbs are making a resurgence in stylish homes and businesses—they are at the center of “industrial chic” décor, focusing on the nostalgia and simple design of everyday items like Edison’s beloved bulb. Often, the light bulbs are paired with modest, unornamented fixtures, highlighting the beauty of the brightly glowing filaments inside each bulb.

Did you know that the Edison Ford Winter Estates Museum Store carries specially-made reproductions of Edison bulbs? A choice of four different styles authentically replicate Edison bulbs produced prior to the turn of the 20th century.
