Globe Bulb, £12.78, from Tigermoth Lighting

Less is more with these Globe Bulbs from Tigermoth Lighting. £12.78

While bare bulbs remind some of student accommodation, those in the know, erm well, know that they’re far cooler than that.

A perfect example of this trend are the Globe Bulbs from one of my favourite lighting companies Tigermoth Lighting.

Available in two sizes, these simple bulbs are not for hiding in shades, oh no, they’re there to be admired in all the simple beauty.

A row of them at varying heights would look stunning over a dining table or you could try using a cluster by your front door.

Simple yet ever so elegant.
