The matt black Bronte Ceiling Flush Light is a unique looking fixture, hearkening back to a vintage design, with the bulb featured prominently within the rectangular casing (SKU 1353001).

The Astro Lighting Bronte uses a max. 60W E27 bulb (not included) but we would recommend a GLS LED lamp, to cut costs on your electricity bills. If you want the fitting to look like the one in the featured picture you need to see the vintage light bulbs available on the site.

This truly boasts an arresting design with a black finish, clear glass encompassing the bulb and a 108.5mm projection from the ceiling. The IP23 rating means the Bronte is primely suited for outdoor lighting on the ceiling, as long as it is out of reach of the elements.

Best of Both Worlds - Traditional Light Fittings using Vintage-Style LEDs

A few years ago, the main argument, when it came to the return of traditional style lighting, was whether the old-school charm they offered could justify the weak, faint light of their iridescent bulbs. In a review on LumReview, the author states he loves the candle-style light offered by vintage bulbs ‘as much as the next guy’, but the poor lighting they offered made them a relic that should remain in the past. This traditional vs LED lighting argument raged as interior decorators continued to favour the stylish decadence of traditional lighting: the swinging pendants, the classy metal cages - they all remained in demand from consumers. Furious LED advocates were adamant that there was no questioning the advantages of LED lighting. LEDs had a longer-lasting lifespan, better energy efficiency, improved safety, superior colour rendering - the list goes on. Vintage-style lighting versus LEDs - an antiquated argument? However, the question must be asked - why does this have to be framed as an argument between LEDs and traditional light styling? Can we not have the best of both worlds? You may have noticed the resurgence in vintage-style lamps, that actually contain LED lights which accurately resemble the old-school filaments of iridescent bulbs. SparksDirect offers a plethora of these so-called ‘traditional style’ lamps, for instance, the Bronte range of lights. These include models such as the Bronte Rectangular Outdoor Ceiling Flush Light, which boasts a clear glass case to showcase a vintage E27 light, which can in fact take a GLS energy-saving clear light bulb. LED fans can protest as much as they wish, but vintage-style lighting is simply not going anywhere. They undeniably provide a certain tranquil atmosphere and are absolutely perfect for restaurants, pubs and various traditional eating spots for an extra sprinkling of ambience. Huge names in retailing such as GE, Phillips, IKEA and Cree have all leapt in on the ‘vintage style’ trend, giving them their own legitimate categories.Buy the Bronte Ceiling Light Best of Both Worlds: Vintage-style LEDs in Traditional Lights There are in fact valid reasons that the combination of vintage-style lighting and LEDs could be a perfect alliance. A typical LED bulb, which cost only a few pounds, can now last for decades potentially, meaning that people will have to switch out their light bulbs less and less often. Huge manufacturers, such as IKEA, have jumped onto the vintage train as they know it means people who don’t need to purchase a new bulb will do so if they want a new light for their new vintage pendant light. What it really boils down to is aesthetics: the traditional style for a light fitting have a distinctive design, well known to frequenters of any trendy bar or restaurant - or even some older and more traditional houses, such as a manor house, traditional homes, etc. This design gives a crystal clear view of the bulb, and LED bulbs have got increasingly competent at producing fancy-looking fake filaments. For instance, the Felt vintage line twist filaments around each other in artful double helices that really espouse a certain class. There are inevitable problems that arise with vintage-style LED bulbs with fake filaments; for instance they rarely combine with the dimmer switches in smooth fashion. The illusion of a ‘candle like’ light is definitely squashed when the LED bulb starts buzzing sporadically as you try to dim it. Issues like this can be caused by electromagnetic interference from the dimmer switch, which standard LEDs aren't susceptible to, but decorative LEDs are. Whatever the arguments against the resurgence of vintage-style LEDs, they undeniably add a polished touch of class to your home. For instance, on the Sparks Direct website, you can purchase a Richmond Black Lantern to be hung in your garden to create a retro-chic ambience with warm white light, which can all be powered by a simple E27 vintage LED lamp.Buy the Richmond Black Lantern Further reading on this topic: The argument against iridescent vintage lamps (via LuxReview) Reasons why LED lights are considered superior (via Stouchlighting) Why vintage lights are not going anywhere (via CNET) The advantages of LED vintage lights over traditional bulbs (via selectionled)
