Mid-century lighting is a type of lighting design that embraces the materials, inspiration, and style elements of the mid-20th century. It features a wide range of stunning designs, including the Sputnik design and pendant lights.

How to Decorate with Mid-Century Lighting

The following are some of the tips you could consider trying out when decorating your home with mid-century lighting.

Consider Your Furniture

A lot of your mid-century furniture may have a muted colour palette and a statement lighting piece is the perfect complement to the room. When choosing your lighting, think carefully about the existing colours and materials in your room already.

If you believe your room needs more of that very elegant touch, consider placing a mid-century sideboard next to your lighting asset.

Hourglass Light Fixture

This is another widely recognised lighting fixture from the era. Consider decorating your space with a retro hourglass chandelier and add a lovely quirky touch to your home.

Retro Industrial Lighting

Transform your room into a playful space by adding a few retro industrial lights. Consider adding bright colours to the fixtures to make the lighting pop and the room more vibrant.

Go For a Mid-Century Chandelier

You could go with a sleek, mid-century chandelier and let it add a glamorous tone to the room. Opting for a gold-tone base will allow the fixture to unite the other features you have in place. This design option blends particularly well with brass picture frames.

Is Mid-Century Lighting Still in Style?

While mid-century lighting has been around for more than eighty years, a wide range of this design is still in style today. In fact, the style has undergone a modern revival.

Today, you can enjoy the stunning features of the mid-century modern lighting that adds current tastes and elements to reinvent the charm and elegance of the mid-20th century.

What to Look for in Your Mid-Century Lighting

Choosing the mid-century lighting that will offer you the right balance of style, beauty, and lighting functionality is not as straightforward as you might want it to be. Fortunately, there are few factors that can help you pick the most suitable lighting for your space.

Functionality

The first step to picking the right lighting is to determine what you want it to do. For this, you must ask yourself how you intend to use the room.

You should remember that different activities call for different lighting. Determining the kind of mood you want to set in the room will also help.

When it comes to functionality, there are three types of lighting. A good lighting plan includes general, ambient, and task lighting. You could supplement the general lighting from overhead chandeliers with task lighting like suspended pendants.

Light Output

How much light do you need your mid-century lighting to provide you with? There is an IES lighting handbook that offers guidelines on the number of lumens you would need to light specific areas of your home.

For instance, according to the handbook, you would need:

·         200 lumens to light your floor

·         540 lumens to light raised surfaces and tables

·         About 200 lumens per square metre to light your desk

Colour

The right mid-century lighting can make colours come alive, helping your patterned surfaces, fabrics, and carpets pop. You should always choose colour temperatures that are in line with specific situations. Having the wrong lights can flatten and fade vibrant colours and make cool colours appear off.
