The law does not ban the use or manufacture of all incandescent bulbs, nor does it mandate the use of compact fluorescent ones. It simply requires that companies make some of their incandescent bulbs work a bit better, meeting a series of rolling deadlines between 2012 and 2014.
When Out to Dinner, Don’t Count the Watts
June, 2010 - New York Times
At Maialino, the Roman-style trattoria on Gramercy Park, they hover in groups of two and three. At the Standard Grill in the
meatpacking district, they snake through the cafe, restaurant and patio. And at Recipe, a rustic spot on the Upper West Side,
they cluster near the entrance as an enticement.

The Look You Need to Know
G.Q Magazine Article
Dine out in New Your City these days and you can't help but notice the lo-fi flicker of FerroWatt light bulbs. It's as if Thomas Edison had opened a design firm and landed nearly every cool-kid contract in town. Not that you can blame the restaurants. Today,the Ferrowatt bulbs are made very much like the originals from the early part of the last century. Nothing you can get at the hardware store produces a hue closer to candlelight. And while you wouldn't want to light an entire room with these, they're perfect for creating an intimate pool of light that you and your guests will naturally want to gather around. Hang these bulbs low and bare; they need to be close to what they're illuminating. And keep them on a dimmer - the idea is to create atmosphere, not wash it out.

On January 27, 1880, the U.S. government granted patent number 223,898 to Thomas A. Edison for something he called the incandescent lamp. It was a device so revolutionary that few noted one of its lesser attributes: It was also beautiful. Blown from crystal-clear glass, the early light bulb had a peaked top that resembles today's soft-serve ice-cream cone. Within, a loop of carbon filament answered the electric current with a mollifying amber glow. These days, your wall switch can feed the juice to a fluorescent tube or a halogen-gas cylinder (that will make a room bright enough for outpatient surgery).
But romantics, take note: Ferrowatt's replica of Edison's lamp will whisk any room back to the 19th century. The bulbs are available in 30, 40, and 60 watts. They look so good that Mr. Edison would probably have thought them a bright idea.
In November of 1997, Ferrowatt Lamps was featured on the cover of Home Lighting & Accessories. Home Lighting Magazine has been the authoritative trade magazine of the decorative lighting industry for over 80 years.
In the issue "All About Bulbs" a Ferrowatt lamp was featured on the cover in a photo demonstrating the beautiful colors and curves of the filaments found in Ferrowatt antique reproduction lamps.
