We love being trending in design and decoration, but it is true that, for our home or business, we like to find furniture and lighting enduring over time, but, always, with a trendy touch.
Today, at Luz Vintage, we explain some of interior design and lighting styles that endures over time and we recommend some design lamps to illuminate your home or business.
It appears at the United States in the eighties from young and bohemians artists who moved to live in abandoned factories in New York. This is where comes from the loft open space concept. Open and continuous spaces: materials such as bricks predominate in this style. In lighting, stand out “barber’s wall lights” (vertical wall lights with rods or glass tubes) and lamps with dome-shaped metal lampshades.
It is a cold style, but over the years, it has changed and today we find warm and cozy industrial-style apartments and restaurants.
At Luz Vintage we recommend those ceiling lamps and wall sconces to illuminate with industrial design. You can complement this lighting with warm Led strips hidden behind the furniture.
Art Decó returns for lovers of the classics. This movement emerged as a current of French modernism in the fifties of the twentieth century. This interior design stands out for its luxury and elegance, but also as a symbol of rebellion. It was typical of the upper classes and aristocracy. It predominate sinuous and geometric shapes, leather, advertising and movie posters and plants and animals prints.
In lighting, it predominates lamps with glass balls or lamps with opal glass lampshades. These are luminaires that, with care, are so long-lived. Prevail geometric and sinuous tulips, with special shapes, also with reliefs of floral motifs. The white finish of the glass allows light to pass through in a subtle way, creating cozy and warm spaces. The metallic finishes in gold or aged brass provides an elegance synonymous with luxury according to the fifties values.
It arrived like a trend a few seasons ago and since then it has stayed, establishing itself as one of the fashionable interior designs. Born in the Nordic countries,to attract natural light as much as possible. It is common to find large bare windows to capture as much sun light and warmth as possible. It predominates white tones, normally complemented by beige, earth and gray. Light wood is the main element of decoration, to provide warmth without losing light. Following this line, it is very common to find candles and DIY furniture as a decorative element and natural plants to add some color.
In lighting, prevail warm whites and warm LED, but without abusing (between 2700 – 3000k). It is trendy to mix contradictory styles such as industrial and Scandinavian. Lamps with metal domes in white and cream colors, as well as lamps made of wood or natural fibers will be the protagonists in your Nordic decoration.
Vintage style doesn’t means “filling your house with objects and furniture from the fifties”. It is more “a nod” to the designs of the past. The vintage style is elegant, warm and romantic. It predominates neutral tones gray, beige… and aged metals: gold, brass, copper, bronze and even silver. It also predominates straight, sharp lines and natural materials.
In lighting, stand out metal lamps in an aged finish, the aged brass effect provides elegance. The “barbershop wall sconces” and lamps with glass balls, both transparent and opal. Also, very warm color temperatures: between 2200k – 2700k to provide warmth. Currently there are vintage LED bulb designs that imitate the old filament bulbs, but with all the advantages of LED technology.

Born in the sixties and seventies in contrast to the colorful pop-up style. It is based on straight lines and neutral and sober colors such as beige and gray complemented with white.
