There’s nothing wrong with a terribly tacky, little bit kitsch lampshade from circa 1961. And you shouldn’t be embarrassed with that lightbulb that has sat in the fixture so long it’s of a voltage that’s no longer made.
In fact they should be celebrated. And now is the perfect time to do so as it’s Energy Savings Week.
We want to see your shameful shade. Send us a picture of your most shamefully inefficient lamp or light-fitting and win a super-cool, eco light from Plumen.
Ever heard of a Plumen? Soon to become a household name, a Plumen is perhaps one of the most cleverest inventions to grace a room’s presence. It’s a beautiful, brilliantly designed lightbulb that can illuminate even the darkest of places with barely any energy.
As the Plumen lot say, don’t hide your bulb behind a piece of utility, put your bulb on show.
So show us your shades and the most shameful will become the lucky new owner of the world’s first designer light bulb.
