I love the filament led bulbs

Bought one at Ikea recently and I'm so tempted to replace a lot of bulbs in lamps with those. But, at $8 per, I won't.

MrBig,

You can get filament style LED bulbs for much less than $8.00 each from various places on the 'net.

Costco has them- about $2 per bulb when energy rebate in effect.

What is the appeal of these bulbs?

It was a serious question - I've never seen one.

Old timer appeal? i.e. Nostalgia.

Many of the LED filament bulbs have a warm light. Several of them in a room give a nice diffused light. The "Edison bulb" style are generally low output, so it's not uncomfortable to look directly at them.

This. I've got that one I bought as a night reading light.

Well I'll be, I never knew those were LED light bulbs. I just assumed they were some kind of emergent boutique throwback to incandescent bulbs. You learn something new every day.

They certainly were, and available for many years, but this is a new wrinkle on that trend. My reaction was the same when I saw LED on the side of the box. So glad I tried it, it's become my night light, at a perfect color temp, and using only 6w.
