Vintage-Style Lighting

Posted on April 26, 2015 by Ed L | 0 comments

Bring back the glory of last decade's lighting fixtures with vintage style lighting. While many of these styles are no longer produced by lighting companies, LampsUSA offers various vintage lighting products and accessories to choose from at affordable prices. Many lighting companies are seeing the value of bringing back the old lighting trends, and some of them even go so far as to preserve and restore vintage lighting products.

Vintage lighting is usually reminiscent of past decades, though they can go back as far as to be inspired by the more classic traditional lighting trends. From retro lampshades to loudly colored LED lights, companies today are finding that vintage lighting is far from a dying style. Chandeliers with a vintage feel can come in more bronze finishes and metallic builds, although it’s not a look that’s completely exclusive to old trends

It goes without saying: vintage lighting often evokes a feeling of sentimental nostalgia. Home décor that is themed after styles from the past decades are great places to find vintage lighting, and homeowners with this kind of décor are usually avid purchasers and collectors of vintage lights. In fact, many individuals with contemporary styled homes are also looking to vintage lighting styles, largely for its artistic appeal and inspiration.

Vintage lighting comes available in various shapes and sizes, though because of the emergence of contemporary lighting forms, they can be a little hard to find. Still, browse through LampsUSA’s vintage lighting selections to help you find what you need.

Consider the Use

Reading lamps need a wider shade to provide plenty of light. 

Consider the Room - What is the color and style of your room? Will the lamp have a starring role or compliment its surroundings?

Consider the Bulb
Be sure you have 2-3 inch separation from bulb to shade, especially for higher wattage bulbs. Be sure the top opening is wide enough to vent the heat. Compact Fluorescent bulbs are great for most lamps because they burn cooler, but you may need larger harp since CFL's are taller than standard light bulbs.
