Retro ceiling lights for sale in the U.K. and Europe

The term ‘retro’ when talking about ceiling lights encompasses a wide range of styles, from the 1950s up to 1989. The 1950s placed a strong emphasis on both function and form, with clean lines and simple shapes and patterns. In the 60s, retro ceiling lights followed the trend for the rejection of the establishment and self expression. Bright colours, new patterns and a sense of exploration can all be seen in this style of lighting, with boho lighting emerging in the mid-century.. Further colours and patterns were explored in the 1970s, and you’ll find the beginning of the decade dedicated to bright coloured plastics, while the end introduced dark, earthy tones to bring nature indoors. By the 1980s, bold colours and geometric shapes were most in vogue.
