Why choose mid-century lighting?

The mid-century design movement was characterised by its mantra of form following function. For the first time in many years, the mid-century movement placed the focus of furniture design back on its practical ability to serve a purpose, using durable materials and high quality manufacture to ensure that pieces both stood out and stood the test of time. Clean lines, sleek finishes and slim silhouettes are all indicative of this movement, which created luxury home additions by celebrating the beauty of simplicity.

This is reflected in the lighting designs of this era, which bring together practicality and aesthetic appeal perfectly. There is also an element of whimsy and fun to mid-century designs, as many lights featured unusual elements to make them stand out as a statement piece, such as coloured glass, stained bronze, starburst designs and industrial qualities.

Introducing mid-century lighting into your home

Lighting from the mid-century period could refer to table lamps, floor lamps, wall sconces and ceiling pendants, giving a wide range of styles and designs to suit any interior setting. A more delicately decorated stained-glass table lamp can help to create a relaxing vibe in the bedroom, while the more whimsical wall lights of mid-century designers like Kalmar Franken can add a heightened sense of homeliness and personality to the living room. Of course, a sleek glass and chrome ceiling light is a fantastic addition to any dining room, creating a sense of luxury while still remaining modern and accessible.
