The last few months, I noticed more and more simple light bulbs flooring around. It’s time now to get some inspiration and create the same look : I’ll tell you how, follow me !
At the first glance, I found that hanging bulb very simple, industrial, and not specially decorative. But the more I see it, the more I appreciate it. In fact, the long vertical lines create more height volume in a room, it gives an impression of floating element in the void.

How I got inspired by this new lighting trend ?
Here is where I first saw it, in a new café in Wanaka: URBAN GRING

3. Get the look: how to create your own new light
To get the same look, you can either buy a simple bulb light or create it yourself.
Here is a list of shops where you can buy the lamp:
Mistales to avoid when you hang your light bulb
- Make sure the light is placed in a room with enough height. You want the light cord to be quite long in order to enhance the volume of your room. Too short, the light will look like a cheap temporary building light, and you don’t want that.
- Make sure the cord is flexible enough to be hanging well vertically. The light bulb is usually not heavy enough to guarantee the cord to be hanging vertically. A too stiff cord will create a non vertical line which will look wobbly, and cheap.
- The tip is to place several lights in a row to enhance the industrial repetitive style !
