Why Choose Seagull Lighting Pendants for Your Home Décor
How it all began
The unique history of lighting doesn’t begin with fixtures like Seagull Lighting pendants. Since the invention of the first functioning light bulb in 1879, lighting has played a vital role in our daily living. Our use of lighting is so second nature that many of us now take for granted what was a revolutionary invention only decades earlier. Since the invention of the bulb, our use of lighting, along with the types of lighting we use, has evolved as fast as our lifestyles. After the lightbulb went into production in 1890, tungsten filament was invented, making the bulb more efficient. In the 1920s, frosted light bulbs were invented, along with adjustable bulbs for vehicles. Neon lighting was also invented that year. In the 1930s, the fluorescent tanning lamp as well as single use flash bulbs came to be. The 1940s brought the invention of soft light incandescent light bulbs, adding a new measure of comfort to your lighting and decor. During the 1950s, halogen light bulbs were introduced and produced for the public. It wasn’t until the 1990s that compact fluorescent light bulbs were produced. These bulbs were well known for their energy efficiency and were widely accepted and used. They were the main source of lighting in many households until the 2000s, when LED were perfected and started to dominate the lighting market.
These changes came out of both necessity and a need for the ever-changing appliances they were being used for. Incandescent bulbs were discontinued under government order as more efficient methods of emitting light were invented. An incandescent bulb will last about 750 hours and will cost approximately $8 each per year to operate. Multiply this cost over the number of bulbs in your home and you will see this is a significantly large number. Today’s modern bulbs will last approximately 10,000 hours and will cost about $1.00 per year to operate. It’s also important to note that a 60 watt incandescent bulb is only approximately a 10 watt bulb for LED. There are substantial savings on your power bill when using LED bulbs for fixtures like Seagull Lighting pendants instead of incandescent bulbs.
Bulbs are only part of the entire lighting package. Of course, no bulb is complete without a fixture to attach it to. The lighting should be part of the room design. The size of your room, the natural lighting of the room, and the location of your light will all determine the best type of fixture for your room. The style of your room will indicate the best design. Seagull Lighting pendant lights are a style of lighting that is very functional due to its versatility.
