Busy busy day

Today has been one hectic day.  Arranged all the stock and its amazing how a space can just come to life, the concept has become reality and its quite surreal to see.
One final touch arrived today in the form of a special delivery of some very special light bulbs.

This is the worlds first designer energy saving light bulb from design studio, Plumen.
A few words from the website :

"The Plumen 001 is the world’s first designer energy saving light bulb.
The energy saving light bulb is a neglected, yet inspiring invention. It uses 80% less energy than the traditional incandescent light bulb, keeps down electricity bills and is better for the environment. It also lasts around 8 times longer.
Despite this, we tend to buy them out of moral obligation. To some the problem is the light they give off, to others it is the way they look. Both can be solved. We believe the answer is in the design.
Make the bulb attractive and people will spend a bit more and enjoy a better quality of light and a design they appreciate every day. Glass tubes can be bent is many different shapes so why are there thousands of manufacturers but only three designs? Plumen aims to address the problem.
The name comes from ‘plume’ – a bird’s show feather, designed to attract attention to a bird’s prowess and beauty. We believe our designs do the same for the energy saving light bulb."


A nice funky feature and we will be stocking them in the future too.
