Sorry, couldn’t help the Rihanna reference! I know obsession is a word I throw around a lot on this blog but in this case it would be a total understatement. I think I’ve spent hours googling images of this bad boy–the Diamond Light, designed by Eric Therner. I’ve always loved the look of bare bulb pendants but this definitely ups the glam factor. And who doesn’t love diamonds?
With a 15-watt halogen bulb encased in clear glass, the aptly-named Diamond Lights emanate a romantic vintage vibe balanced with a clean modern form. These light bulbs are the brainchild of Eric Therner. Diamond Lights challenge the typical smooth pear shaped bulb in favor of something gorgeous, glamorous and faceted.

Well I want to play it Monroe style and have plenty of these in my living room to brighten up my nights!
This light bulb in the shape of a diamond was created by the Swedish (!!) designer Eric Therner. They are sold at €40.00 which is quite expensive since we don’t usually want to spend money on something that we see as disposable…but they last around 2000 hours (that’s about three months) which makes this cool piece of design more worthwhile.
I have wanted this light by Eric Therner for such a long time after seeing it on a design sight a while ago. Now I’m all settled into my new apartment and got my first pay check from the restaurant I celebrated and it is finally mine!
The packaging it came in is so nicely designed and timeless (I love it when things come in really great boxes) and because it’s a light bulb it is so simple to install and relatively cheap for a statement lamp.
I painted the light cord black to match it (rather than shelling out for a new one) and boy am I proud.
It’s always good to have a little bling in your life.
