What is Vintage?
The term vintage refers to something that is ‘of age’. Vintage lights are true to this definition in that, they are products that produce an old-world charm while still being able to fit into the modern trends of today. Another term for this is Antique. Antiques are a popular style even in today’s society as they can tell a story and bring an element of warmth and feeling to a project that their more modern counterparts struggle to achieve.
Even though our range of lights are considered vintage, this does not mean they are second hand antiques passed down through many generations. Instead, they are classic reproductions of the originals. This allows the products to be bulk produced, meaning you get a brand-new product with a warranty while still achieving your vintage aesthetic goal. Vintage lights are not destined to go out of fashion, as they are timeless features and are classics that continue to remain popular through the ages. Whether your home is large or small, you can place multiple of the same light style into multiple rooms, ensuring everything will match.
Our collection of vintage lights caters to an array of different styles, periods, and themes. These periods include some of the most famous such as Art Deco for those 1930’s builds, Traditional, Victorian, Federation, Edwardian styles, Californian bungalow, and even the popular Hamptons style homes.
