Your Bulbs Are Showing: 5 Great Exposed-Bulb Light Fixtures

Artemide’s Miconos Table Lamp got a shout-out in April’s Elle Décor, and the blogosphere was all over it – naked bulbs are hot!

There’s just something about putting that bare, Thomas-Edison-esque bulb on display for all to see. It seems very basic and audacious at the same time. Here are a few exposed bulb light fixtures we think get the job done. Attention-seeking shades need not apply.

Miconos Collection by Artemide, designed by Ernesto Gismondi
Bubbles Globe Pendant by Sonneman Lighting
Candelaria Chandelier by Robert Abbey
Bulb Pendant by AndTradition, a 2000 Sofie Refer design and winner of the Chicago Athenaeum, Museum of Architecture and Design, 2001 Good Design Award.
