For a light fixture or any other item to be considered truly vintage, it must be at least twenty years old. Vintage style lighting, however, is in current production and draws inspiration from designs and materials that were popular at least twenty years in the past. With such a broad timeline, vintage lighting encompasses many forms, materials, and finishes. Destination Lighting carries over nine-thousand vintage style lights to help you add nostalgic charm to any room.
Characteristics of Vintage Lighting
Indicators of vintage style lighting are metal shades in pastel-colored finishes, glass shades in tinted, milky, or prismatic options, simple silhouettes, and vintage style bulbs. Bulbs are often a central feature of vintage lighting fixtures, especially now with the popularity Edison-style, or filament, light bulbs.
