Retro lamps take us back in time whilst being trendier than ever. Retro lamps are characterised by their geometric patterns and reduced forms. When it comes to colour - black, white, silver and smokey grey are the most popular, as are bold, single colours.
Retro floor lamps and matching sofas made of upholstery fabrics and velvet make an awesome pair that brings cosiness to your home. Single-coloured lampshades in classic sixties shapes combined with chrome and gold-coloured frames help create that classic sixties vibe.
A skillful combination of old and new furnishings mixed with charming accessories can bring a personal touch to your home. By adding retro-chic ceiling lights or single-colour spotlights, you can create a sixties lighting look that still feels fresh after six decades.
Lampshades in a trendy retro style give us light from the most prominent place on the wall. They look great placed in retro interiors next to a reading chair, above a chest of drawers, or alongside a desk.
The most popular shapes for retro-style table lamps are curves (semicircular if possible). Stylish retro table lamps create a cosy atmosphere with their warm white light when placed on a chest of drawers. You can add small touches to this look by adding coffee table books, old typewriters, or telephones. This will help achieve an extra layer of retro-chic to the room.
Pendant lights with large, rounded shades are just as much in fashion today as they were in the sixties. Retro pendant lights also add a focal point to the room, whether hung over a coffee table, chest of drawers, or in the hallway and kitchen.
A shade in one colour is the way to go if you’re looking for an extra dash of elegance.
You cannot forget about a filament bulb for a complete retro lighting look. The good news is that you don’t have to scour antique shops for old bulbs either as there are many LED alternatives. Not only do the bulbs look like the originals, but they also use less energy, help the environment and reduce your bills.
