The appeal of the Edison light bulb is all in its display. The design emits less light than a regular bulb, making it better for creating a moody atmosphere. We picked 11 Edison-style light bulbs with stunning exposed filaments to give that vintage-era refinement to any room in your home.

1 Basics Hardware 60w/110v Edison Light Bulbs (Six-Pack)
$18.95

This top-selling set of Edison light bulbs is a great value for outfitting an array of sockets at once, or for keeping extras on hand as backup. They cast an inviting, golden glow on a gathering area, and they can dim to adjust to the mood. Because of the filament's fragility, make sure you test all of the bulbs within a week or two after receiving them to ensure they work as they should.

2 SHINE HAI 470 Lumen Edison-Style LED Bulb (Six-Pack)
$15.99

This super-affordable set of six LED Edison light bulbs is an energy-efficient alternative to a traditional model. Incandescent Edison bulbs tend to give off a lot of heat and not a lot of light, while these illuminate brightly enough to be a bulb replacement nearly anywhere. 

By virtue of being LED lights, they also have a much longer, 20,000-hour lifespan, so you won't need to worry about burning these bulbs out anytime soon.

3 Feit Electric LED-Vintage Style Edison Light Bulb
$9.46

We love the industrial-style look of raw, bare-bulb cord pendants hanging in a cluster overhead. Note that using a traditional Edison bulb will create ambiance, but it won't make a lot of sense for a reading nook, or kitchen, where you generally need more light. 

This vintage-style bulb from Feit Electric is loved by users for its cool looped filament, making it ideal for fixtures and pendants that need a statement bulb to really make it shine.
