Classic Glass Light LED Bulbs from Philips Mean LEDs Don’t Have to Be Ugly Anymore

Remember when LED bulbs were ugly white opaque globs? Fortunately, those days are long gone. As a matter of fact, they are so long gone that Philips is now offering clear classic glass light bulbs.

For designers and homemakers who values aesthetics, this is a game changer since you can finally use energy-efficient lights that actually resemble classical bulbs. And like with Philips’ other LED bulbs, these bulbs use about 80% less energy than traditional bulbs and they also last longer. The bulbs all provide a warm glow effect that helps create a cozy atmosphere, just like you would get from traditional bulbs.

These LED bulbs are all dimmable as well so that you can choose from different lighting effects. The bulbs work with most existing dimmers. New to the Philips collection are candle LED bulbs that work in chandeliers.

You can pick up an 8 pack of the Clear Glass Dimmable Filament Light Bulbs from Amazon for $33.13. A 4 pack for the Candle Light Bulbs with warm glow effect retails for $12.99 at Amazon.
