Vintage lighting is a design trend which continues to shine bright in 2014. This encompasses ceiling lights, floor standings lamps and table lamps. Inspiration comes from New York loft spaces and railway stations of yester year. Materials have an industiral feel – think metal, bolts and bare bulbs on display. Let’s take a look at two collections to give you an idea of what to expect.
Vintage Lighting From Heal’s
Vintage lighting certainly prevailed at the Heal’s spring / summer 2014 press preview event. Lighting is a key focus for Heal’s this year with quite a few contemporary industrial and a vintage loft warehouse pieces.
British Design Studio, Dyke & Dean, has produced a customised lighting collection. This allows customers to create their own lights using a selection of components – fixtures, fittings and flexes. Layer your light or strip it back to a bare bulb with coloured flex. However you choose to construct it, you can make yourself lighting which is totally unique.
