on October 10, 2016

About half an year ago, we had discussed an exciting interior project with a yoga company in Jakarta. They are finally launched the shop and did a great job on the interior design. 

Lewis & Carroll is a newly opened tea house nested on the first floor of Bumi Four building, while the second and third floor are used by Yoga Dham, a yoga center which is managed by the same family, a passionate tea lover family. 

We love the clean and simple wooden decoration of its interior, bringing such refreshment to the scene. The family has a great taste of furniture and tea pot as well. The ceramic tea pots, plates and dining tools are perfect for the white sofa. Light with Shade team is so proud to work with Lewis & Carroll and custom made our unique Asian Bamboo Lamps for them.

Is Edison bulb easily burn out?

By Stephanie To
on February 22, 2016

Edison bulb can last for 3 to 6 months. If you’re not switching it on for 24 hours a day, it could possibly last for a year.

The bulb runs at thousands of degree and having a high the initial current surge. That’s why Edison bulb release more heat than LED bulb. To avoid the Edison bulb turning out that fast, you can choose not to screw the bulb too tightly to the fixture or lamp socket because the light socket get flattened out over time and closely contact the light bulb causing the bulb burnt out.


Even the old-fashioned Edison bulb are having shorter life span comparing with LED bulbs, many restaurants still addicted on Edison bulbs. They create a very warm glow and become a signature on beauty of restaurant interior. The bulbs best fit with any interior from vintage loft, industrial, rustic to modern, minimalism Scandinavian design.

Does a dimmed light bulb save energy?

By Stephanie To
on January 10, 2016

There’s some explained that a dimmed light bulb that is dimmed from a switch use less electricity.  However, this is not as efficient as you thought. Dimming  an incandescent bulb is less efficient than using a lower wattage of a light bulb. For example, dimming a 60W bulb to the brightness of a 40W bulb will use more energy than a 40W bulb on maximum. Plus, dimmer itself uses some power.  

What is the best way to use less electricity?  I would suggest getting a LED bulb, even though it’s more expensive.  

If you’re a fan of Edison bulbs, don’t worry about that. Nowadays, the new version of dimmer helps to save energy and also prolong the life of your bulbs, which making bulbs running at lower power with less stress. Or, you can choose those dimmer designed just for incandescent bulb. They use high frequency switching that turns the supply on and off continuously several times per second, which is giving less power to the bulb.  

Edison bulbs are for creating a moody, soft and warm lighting instead of home illustration. It’s all depends on how you would like your home look like. Having a moody or an energy saving lighting? The LED Edison bulb is a great choice to serve both purposes. The new version of Edison LED bulb keep the original old fashioned Edison incandescent squirrel cage design, serving the moody lighting effect, energy efficient and save money. We have 3W, 4W and 5W LED Edison bulb with warm vintage color ranging 2200 to 2600 Kelvin. Comparing with 2700 Kelvin traditional Edison bulbs, the LED Edison bulbs are more rustic, warm and moody, and of course is more energy saving.  More and more restaurants and design firms are using Edison LED bulbs. I am sure such fever still goes on during 2016.
