Man, these lightbulbs from Plumen are so awesome. IF ONLY they were compatible in USA. Sure, they're a little pricier than normal bulbs but they're energy–saving. And unlike other lightbulbs, these have a beautiful design so it looks awesome without a shade. And the glow reminds me of old Edison lightbulbs. If I lived in a country using 230v, I'd get a few in a heartbeat especially for my golden light collection.
