Compare Brightness:



The amount of light that comes from a bulb, which has commonly been measured in watts. The more lumens, the brighter the bulb.


A measurement of the power delivered to a component of an electric circuit (allowing a one-ampere current to flow through the component under the pressure of 1 volt.)

Bulb Shape

Bulb shapes are denoted with a letter, which describes the shape, and a number, which indicates the size. The number indicates the diameter of the light bulb at its widest part in eighths of an inch.


The part of the bulb that connects to the fixture and its power supply. Bulb bases are denoted with the letter E, and a number which indicates the diameter of the bulb base at its widest part in millimeters.


Indicates how much voltage a bulb can accept via the fixture it's installed in.

Light Color Temperature

The relative color from a light source, measured on the Kelvin temperature scale. Warm light is lower in color temperature (2700-3000 K) and cool, blue light is higher (5000 K).

Average Rated Life

The average amount time that a bulb is expected to last.


CRI = color rendering index. This number, which can go from 0 to 100, measures the ability of a light or bulb accurately renders colors. The higher the number, the better, with most quality bulbs these days measuring at least in the 80s.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning light - looks even better in person We didn't quite know what to expect when we ordered this light - but it really wowed us once we received it and had it installed in our living room. Terrific quality, beautiful lines, and easy to install.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Time Bubble Lamp Owner...No Brainer. So, when I was a Grandmother had a Nelson Bubble Lamp over her dining table and I remember staring at it every time I went over to her home, thinking, that's the coolest lamp ever. Looks like a glowing flying saucer. Years later, in 2001 I bought my first bubble lamp (Modernica at the time) - a Med Nelson Saucer Bubble Lamp. I just love the look of them both turned on or off. I'm a photographer, so lighting is important and the Nelson Bubble Lamp gives off a subtle, consistent glow that can fill a room. No harsh bulbs showing, no complex details casting shadows, just beautiful light. It's now 2019 and I've owned over a dozen different bubble lamps and just picked this one up from Lumens for our new home. It's perfect. Arrived quickly in excellent condition, well protected and packaged, installed in 10 min and looks amazing over our kitchen table. I cut the cord shorter to hang right where I need it for the space, while leaving about a foot extra, tied up in the ceiling housing. If you're budget for a new chandelier is $100-200, this may seem pricey, but trust me it's worth it. Definitely don't go with a knockoff. If, on the other hand, your budget is $1000-2000, a Nelson Bubble Lamp is a crazy bargain that you should consider. Always looks rich, simple, cool and clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice statement light We bought a large bubble light for our dining room. It looks beautiful sitting above the table and provides great diffused light for the space. Install was easy enough - there was enough cord length to swag the light so it was centered over our table. We really love how the light looks when dimmed at night. There was a slight plastic odor that lingered for a couple days after install. Though, it went away pretty quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm in love with this light I have this installed in my formal dining room with an LED bulb on a dimmer switch, and it's magnificent. It gives off plenty of soft diffused light and creates a nice ambiance for our family dinners. At night when I dim the light all the way down, it looks like a softly glowing moon. The only couple of things about it that I didn't love were the band-aidy vinyl smell that lasted for nearly two months, and trying to measure and tie off the electrical cord to get the lamp to the height I wanted. I was worried I was going to screw up something.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful light! This is our second home that we put these lights in, and they are spectacular! Clean, modern, beautiful. We put two in our upstairs hallway, at the top of the staircases. Shipping was very fast and efficient, and the packaging was great. Highly recommend!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly what you expect The bubble lamp is beautiful -- streamlined, mod, and luminous. You pay for the Hermann Miller name but you also get HM style. So.
