High/Low: Cut-Crystal Light Bulbs

December 31, 2013

I’m not usually a cut-crystal type of person, but I’m finding myself coveting a light bulb (or two) from UK designer Lee Broom. They’re on the expensive side, so we found a couple of lower-priced options for the crystal obsessed among us.

The bulbs are available directly from Lee Broom for £109 each; the Crystal Bulb plus brushed pendant fitting is $299 from Future Perfect.
