Old Charm Meets New Crystal Bulb Lighting by Lee Broom

At my friend’s apartment last week a spirited debate over ceiling lights was sparked by the idea that old fashioned crystal lights can (or cannot) fit with a stark, open interior. Nine somewhat antiquated ceiling lights were the point of contention in all of their clunky clear glass splendor. Standing by my opinion in favor of the wonky little crystal shades, I think Lee Broom is really onto something with his Crystal Bulb lighting.

Since inspiration comes in all shapes, sizes, and materials, the delicate cut offered Broom the physical strategy that would be mastered through the Crystal Bulbs using a hand-blown, classically prismatic pattern. Finished off with a Lee Broom logo, each of the bulbs (or hanging pendants, if you so desire) combine the ornamental with the luxurious in lighting.

Although the art of crystal is often used in ballroom chandeliers and such whimsical lighting creations, the Crystal Bulbs by Lee Broom are hardly of the same genre of lighting. Place the hanging bulbs in a quaint corner next to a chaise lounge as a fashionable reading light or line them up over a dining table for ambiance.

“Broom has collaborated with experts at Cumbria Crystal, the sole remaining producer of handmade English full lead crystal in the UK,” describes the Broom’s website of the process. “This keeps true to Lee Broom’s signature design ethos of working with British craftsmen.”

Fitting into any wall, floor or table lamp fitting, the Crystal Bulbs are sold on their own or with a pendant fitting, and can be hung solo or in groupings.
