I was recently in a home with some “Vintage” pieces and it made me think of how far design has come over the years. The styles and designs of lights and furniture have changed. A hanging light was just that. It served a purpose – to add light over a chair for reading. Chairs around a dining table were utilitarian and didn’t always look too stylish. Now hanging lights, or pendant lights, are everywhere – in kitchens over islands and sinks, in bathrooms, or just about anywhere. Dining chairs are more comfortable and have a sense of style of their own.
This light (including all the extra chain) hangs over a cozy chair and reminds me of some new styles that are “vintage” in their own way. As I surfed the internet, I came across these lights which must have been inspired by pieces in the past.
And do you remember sitting at the kitchen table in these chairs, covered in a wipeable vinyl that always sticks to your legs? Once again I searched for Vintage inspired chairs and came up with some pretty good examples.
Finally I couldn’t resist the floor lamp that has a built in table and magazine rack, quite a functional piece. It took some time but I found one floor lamp that certainly has some inspiration from the past. Steering away from the “table” part, I found other wonderful floor lamps that would be great in any home.
Enjoy having pieces that are a blast from the past in your home!
