A Guide to the Latest Retro Lighting Trends
What exactly is our fascination with retro looks? They always seem to come around in fashion, style and design every so often. We love the sense of nostalgia, or perhaps we are running out of new ideas? Either way, adding a retro look to your lighting design is somewhat ironic as you are borrowing from an older style, but it will never go out of fashion!
If you are considering adding a retro look to your home with your lighting, Lightsup has a wide selection of options for you. Let's dive into the world of retro lighting to see how it can benefit your home's aesthetic.
The retro twin floor lamp
The best parts about a retro comeback are the combination with a modern look. That is specifically the case with this retake of a classic designer lamp that is both stylish and practical.
The Retro Twin can handle a larger globe, and when you combine it with an opal LED or CFL globe, you have the perfect reading or movie lamp for the corner of your room. It also comes with a convenient single footswitch for ease of use!
The Bradway Retro Industrial Vintage Pendant
Here we have a cohesion of a range of current popular looks so you can tick all of the boxes at once! The Bradway Retro Industrial Vintage Pendant will turn heads with its single suspension and bright red taps. The matte black metalware sits on a cloth cord suspension offering the perfect industrial vintage look for those with more eclectic taste.
We recommend adding an exposed filament globe to really drill home the look.
The Maison 15cm Retro Halophane Glass Shade
To really lean into the old-school, opt for the Maison 15cm Retro Halophane Glass Shade over your lights in any room. Available in either an Amber, Blue Smoke, or Clear glass, this is a subtle but effective way to introduce the retro look into your home.
