Why choose an Antique or Vintage lighting fixture for your home

How you choose to decorate your home is always personal, and what works for one person may not work for another. A choice of wall coverings, styles of paint, or any other feature can attract equal praise or disdain depending on the audience.

However, one thing is certain. If you want to add a touch of class to any room, installing antique lighting fixtures will instantly upgrade the appearance of the area.

Antique lighting may provide a light source in similar ways as a modern lighting fixture does, so why would you choose a vintage lighting fixture for your home?

The Quality of Antique Lighting

Antique lighting pendants, antique vanity lighting, and any other kind of antique lighting fixture you can imagine will have been created many years ago. Lighting in the Art Deco, Art Nouveau, or Arts & Crafts style was originally made by hand, built by artists and craftsmen with a passion for the task and a love of art.

The reason the pieces look so opulent and resplendent to the modern eye is the level of detail and the true talent that it took to put them together. Reproductions are mostly made by machines and lack the human feel that is expressed by a true antique light.

Antique Lighting Restoration

At Historical Lights, we complete antique lighting restoration projects to enable us to share the joy of owning a real vintage lighting fixture through our online antique lighting shop. Each restoration we make is completed by hand to maintain the individual feel of the piece.

Due to the age of the antique lighting parts, some do inevitably require replacement. Any part we replace is done so sympathetically, and each light is upgraded with modern wiring and electrical components for your safety and enjoyment.

No matter what else you do to a room, the lighting fixture is always one of the most noticeable features. By choosing to use antique lights, you’ll be carrying on the history and tradition of the Art Deco and Art Nouveau movements while still lighting your space effectively.

As a talking point, nothing can beat an antique light. The graceful lines and edges, the quality of the materials, and the overall appearance of a handmade and hand restored lighting fixture will make your room feel like a palace in no time at all.
