Bright Ideas Behind the Scenes

Reproduction vintage bulbs: The hottest thing.

By Laura Cassidy October 28, 2010

Good thing I took this video. I’ve had more than a couple of inquiries regarding Bright Ideas, our holiday gift idea spread, and the artfully tangled, romantically dangling, and perfectly solo warm yellow light bulbs therein. So here we go.

We used reproduction vintage bulbs from Rejuvenation in SoDo. In creating the scene, Seattle Met art director Ben Purvis, photographer Ryan McVay, and I took inspiration from a lighting scheme at the John Varvatos store in New York, an even more intense set-up at the Gramercy Park Hotel, and a gorgeous mini-homage to the aforementioned by the supertalented Steve Moore of Steven Moore Designs.
