Get The Vintage Look With BLT Direct’s Extended Range Of Squirrel Cage Light Bulbs

The UK’s leading retailer of lighting solutions is helping Brits create the perfect vintage look with a newly introduced range of squirrel cage fittings and pendants. Designed for use with filament incandescent bulbs, the all-new accessories offer BLT Direct buyers exceptional choice and the convenience of purchasing complete squirrel cage lighting solution sets with just a few clicks of the mouse.

Steven Ellwood, Managing Director of BLT Direct said, “While we love to embrace the latest cutting edge technology we still recognise that many home and business decorators prefer to create a vintage or antique style look. That’s why we’ve extended our range of squirrel cage light bulbs to include a selection of fittings and pendants which radiate old world charm. Creating a seamless squirrel cage lighting look has never been so easy!”

At present customers can choose from five premium quality products designed for use with squirrel cage bulbs. For understated elegance the range of MiniSun Clear Pendant Glass Shades is just the ticket. Customers can choose from Edgar Dome or Bell shaped designs, both of which boast smooth lines and flowing contours. Shoppers wanting to create a hanging effect will love the MiniSun Suspended Ceiling Light Lamp Holder Pendant. When teamed with a decorative shade the versatile black gloss metal cord is capable of holding and running an ES 60 watt GLS squirrel cage bulb.

The adjustable length offers the ultimate in flexibility and for decorators wanting to channel a chic and minimalist look, the stylish lamp holder can also be used unaccompanied. Wrapping up the brand new range of squirrel cage bulb accessories is a pair of beautifully designed pendant shades. The Elgin Non Electric Painted Basket is a stunning choice for style savvy decorators while the industrial feel of the Avis Birdcage demands attention in any interior.

The up-to-the-minute range of accessories complements BLT Direct’s already impressive selection of squirrel cage bulbs. Inspired by the original 1930s design, today’s squirrel cage incandescent bulbs feature a unique interior filament which has been wound into a cage like shape. The timeless and aesthetically handsome products are ideal for use in classic light fixtures and period homes, as well as modern boutique style spaces. With an average lifespan of 4000 hours the incandescent bulbs offer customers value for money as well as eco-friendly credentials. Squirrel cage buyers also enjoy the flexibility to use the bulbs in conjunction with a dimmer switch in order to simulate carbon heater-like effects.

Thanks to BLT Direct’s introduction of accessories customers can now purchase squirrel cage incandescent light bulbs and complementing fittings all in the same transaction. This is set to help buyers save on both time and shipping costs.
