Filament Beauty

One of my favorite buildings in downtown B'ham is the Alabama Power building (1925), because it's so decorative:

Favorite part: those old-style filament bulbs:

It was hard to get a good picture of the filament, but it's gorgeous:

Filament bulbs have been for sale in the Rejuvenation catalog (if you like vintage lighting then...) forever, and they're being carried by Restoration Hardware now too.  In love with their quad loop tungsten filament bulb with the glass tip.

Plumen makes fluorescent bulbs that are actually beautiful, too.
