Lighting of the future, pretty enough for your antiques.

The only energy efficient lightbulb that I'm tempted to put in my home -- wouldn't this look great dangling from a Edison chandelier

By Switch Lighting, this LED bulb is supposed to put off the same yellow toned light as the incandescents we've grown up with.  It should be available in stores in October.

I totally agree, I already signed up for email alerts from Switch and can't wait to check their products out in person!

Beautiful. And an excellent solution to a problem: The government here in Canada has ordered that incandescent bulbs will no longer be available. But florescent lights can trigger health problems such as migraines and epileptic seisures. LED bulbs cost around $30.00 each. Hopefully, these will have a more reasonable price. If so, I am getting some. I have added myself to their email list.

I love it. But I hate that yellowish tint.. Its always given me headaches and hurts my eyes.

Yes!!! finally! I love LEDs in principle but love clear Edisonesque bulbs aesthetically. Finally there is a bulb worthy of the Greyshade Estate. But the big question is: What will it cost?
