☞ BESPOKE: Thomas Edison Light Bulbs

We were just downtown recently and noticed how so many restaurants have incorporated the Thomas Edison lightbulbs into their design. These crystal clear bulbs with long carbon filaments were invented in 1879 but not readily available to the public until the 1880's. This coincides perfectly with the housing stock of Harlem, so it makes sense that the trend returns. Chez Lucienne and 67 Orange are the first Harlem restaurants to incorporate these light bulbs that emit a romantic, soft light. See previous post on 67 Orange for more visuals and a great place to have a drink: LINK
