Lighting plays an important role in any home interior; not just for practical and functional purposes but because it creates a statement feature within the room. Vintage interior design is as popular as ever and as we move further into 2018 the emphasis is being placed on VINTAGE LIGHTING that is refined and sophisticated and works well in a wide variety of traditional and modern home interiors.

If you love the fun of retro interior design then why not opt for a funky retro floor lamp featuring a curved arm structure with a large orb style pendant at the end of the arm that can be angled to accentuate a seating area, bed or dining table and can be contrasted or co-ordinated with your decor. Opt for a sleek chrome and monochrome design for a minimal and sophisticated finish or select a brass or copper frame and bold coloured shade for a 1960s inspired interior design.

For a more vintage industrial feel in your chosen room then opt for some vintage lighting that creates a rustic warehouse style feel that is perfect for creating a visual feature within the room. A selection of metal framed basket effect lights in copper, brass or chrome will look great with exposed bulb elements and can be hung in a group formation in a central position in the room or can be displayed in a linear shape above a dining table or kitchen island for maximum impact.

If you love the opulence and sophistication of vintage Hollywood glamour then why not opt for some spotlight style floor lamps that will look great with a selection of mahogany furniture or opulent French carved furniture for the ultimate in luxury design. Select a tripod style floor lamp with a large circular spotlight shade. Opt for dark ebony or black painted wood frames with a gold or silver metal shade and accents for a perfect masculine style of light. This Hollywood feel can also be displayed with a classic dressing table mirror with a bulb surround for a feminine dressing room interior design.

Shabby chic and kitsch style home interiors are still as popular as ever and this can be showcased in your home with a selection of vintage lamp shades in a variety of plain, floral and patterned fabrics with beaded or tasselled edging that will look great with a variety of interior colour schemes. These styles of shades can be displayed as a single central pendulum light or as single smaller shades on a three or five arm ceiling light. If you have a reading corner in your living room or bedroom then accentuate a classic armchair with a small side table and vintage table lamp or include a fabric lamp shade on the side of your dressing table area.
