Chic or Shit - Hanging Light Bulbs

Everyone and their mother is currently hanging light bulbs. With a bare wire. Preferably from Nud. What do you think about the trend? Perfect raw industrialism? Just a lightbulb? Does it provide extra interest to the room or just a nasty, unflattering light?

It's up to you..

Industrial CHIC or industrial SHIT??

It depends on how they are used. I love them in photo 3 and 5. There they are grouped into creating a fantastic light source. The others just look like a bulb on a wire.

Åse - Interiörguiden said...

Chic, men för att vara ärlig ger en ensam glödlampa absolut inget mysigt ljus.

små og store drømmer said...

Liker de jeg!
Helst mange sammen sånn som på bilde 3.
Men kunne også gjerne hatt en enslig hengede på en liten gjestedo feks..

They are OK, but quite boring. And no atmosphere is created by them.
It is just a large bulb on a wire. Nothing to be upset about really.

Redlilocks {Swoon Worthy} said...

Grouped as a whole, I think they look really striking, especially with a bit of industrial edge as in the 3rd and 5th images. Individually, a bit too bare for me!

I like how they are used in the third photo only. It seems like a trend that is cool if you have mega funds and a creative electrician at hand, but us normal folks should steer clear of it. Another do it your self bummer is that the light bulb never just hangs there- there's always a trail of cord running down the wall to an outlet. Not so cute.

Love your blog by the way. I discovered it a few weeks ago.

Iris said...

It so depends on what bulb is used; I only like the ones where you can see the copper wire and that gives the yellow light. A single cfl bulb does not do the trick in my perspective.

Hellohello baby said...

CHIC in industrial environments, SHIT in private housings. Thats my opinion :)

Lekenhverdag.com said...

Jeg synes det kan være utrolig lekkert, men bilde 2 beviser for meg det motsatte... ;-)

Anonymous said...

Shit! det må jeg si...jeg er ingen fan.

Lumo said...

I love especailly the third photo, but don't think the light they give would look very flattering in real life, especially if one is using the energy saving bulbs.

Aliza said...

its good done right...I saw someone do a whole cluster together. It looked really chic!

LiveLikeYou said...

I'm not a fan!! I find it sterile, cold and unimaginative!


I think the look is great yet when you involve million lights how is the upkeep with all these lightbulbs.. I own a sputnik lamp which has many lightbulbs but nothing compared to another fixture I once felt in love with but decided not to by due to extremem inpracticality.. 40+ lightblubs in one lamp would drive me nuts if I had to replace a lightbulb a week (if that) on another note i think it looks fantastic!

Oooh I left you a little pressie on my blog today.. go and check it out when you have a spare moment ;) xx

Global Atelier said...

I rather like them when they're Edison Bulbs and have that vintage looking illumination! It adds that industrial touch!

Danielle said...

Chic, but agree with Global Atelier as long as they use Edison Bulbs!!!

Ann said...

Those lamps are lovely to look at,
but truth be told I won't go rushing to buy me one of those for my house:)

Mandarin Chic said...

Synes det er fint når det er mange samlet, ikke en og en, det blir litt Ikea for meg...:) Budino Gold er mine favoritter!

Ashley @ A {Blonde's} DIY Life said...

Though I think it depends on the space!

My House, My Garden said...

Nice trendy look. Perhaps do not spend too much money on this so that when the trend is gone, you will not have buyer's remorse. I do like it when done correctly, though. :)

Thea said...

I love this post. I've been wondering who would want to hang one in their home? It would annoy me to have to look at a naked bulb. Perhaps okay in an industrial setting as hellohello baby mentioned.

Amelia said...

It looks incredible and there's lots of style when a bunch of them are grouped together like in photo 2. Otherwise, a single light bulb here and there looks incomplete.
