What is Retro Lighting?

Have you always wanted to bring retro lighting into your home? Need Inspiration? We have curated a collection focusing on the decades of the 1950's, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s to help you out. Retro light fittings will make great accent pieces to your space whilst still ensuring functionality. The 1950s and 1960s saw the rise of mid-century modern design. It was an age of bright and bold colours, natural materials and textures. The 1970s saw mixes of patterns, textures, and global influences become popular. The use of earthy colours such as brown, orange, mustard yellow, and avocado green were popular and often used in combination with natural materials like wood, stone, ceramic and rattan/wicker.

The 1980’s were characterized by a bold and glamorous aesthetic, with a focus on bright colours, metallic finishes, and unconventional shapes. The rise of technology saw a focus on high-tech materials such as glass, chrome, brass, copper and plastics. Heading into the 1990s, saw a trend towards an eclectic mix of styles, with a focus on individualism and personal expression achieved through the use of vintage or antique pieces mixed with modern. Distressed wood, chain suspensions, distressed finishes, cage lights, exposed light bulbs and more.

From retro pendant lights and retro lamps get inspired with our range of lighting options to suit your expression. For more tips and information check out our definitive How to Guide on Retro.
