This Mission-style coach lantern uses a compact fluorescent bulb that can be programmed to turn on automatically as night falls. (Don’t worry, Northerners: The bulb’s ballast works in temperatures as low as 0 degrees F.) $283, Thomas Lighting
known for their repurposed retro phones, hulger has now designed a low energy light bulb with a unique twisting design.
