They are used instead of PAR halogens because they are smaller and the heat generated escapes out the back of the bulb and away from what is being lit. This means MR bulbs can be installed closer to what’s being lit. MR bulbs produce a lot of light for the wattage since its multifaceted reflector maximizes light output. A 50-watt MR-16 produces the equivalent light level of a standard light bulb of 100 watts. They are installed with pin bases, not screw bases, and MR lamps are used outside, as well.

To understand the market, it’s helpful to know that bulb aficionados say that “antique” bulbs date pre1930s while “vintage” bulbs date between the 1930s and 1980s. However, incandescent bulbs haven’t changed dramatically since 1910. The bases have stayed the same; the Edison screw base, adopted as the standard style in the early 1900s, is still in use today. Filaments went from long, looped, and hairpin pre-1911 to the traditional coiled-wire tungsten after 1913. The only thing that tends to change now is the shape and texture of an incandescent lamp for decorative purposes.

In the following pages, architects and designers share their thoughts on what makes the lighting work, which fixtures they chose to work with (and where they found them), and how they resolved challenges of lighting the sometimes inevitable awkward spaces. The projects are presented in such a way to help the reader understand how the architects’ and designers’ ideas might be adapted into other new and existing homes. The section has been divided into six chapters according to the types of spaces we most need help lighting: living and dining rooms, sleeping and relaxing spaces, kitchen and bath spaces, stairs and hallways, outdoor spaces, and the last chapter includes complete dwellings where projects can be seen in their entirety.
