The Timeless Beauty of Mid-Century Modern lighting


Mid-century modern lighting's timeless, clean-lined style is still a popular choice in new home decor. It is easy to see why. The style combines classic tradition with a contemporary twist keeping it as inspiring as it is functional. With its endless variety of decorative options and geometric shapes, it is no wonder so many are selecting this throwback design to enhance both their indoor and outdoor living spaces. Urban Ambiance offers just the right mid-century modern lighting for all of your remodeling or new construction plans.

What is Mid-Century Modern Lighting?

Mid-century modern lighting gained popularity in America in the 1950s, a little over a decade after its introduction at the 1939 World's Fair in New York City. The colorful and linear style was influenced by the Danish and Bauhaus modernist movement. People loved the colorful, quirky shapes and how it seemed to pay homage to the space-age.  The tendency toward a more minimalist approach to home furnishings added to its appeal.

Urban Ambiance continues the tradition of the beloved style by offering a unique and versatile selection of mid-century lighting solutions. From quality, eye-catching chandeliers to chic pendant lights, your rooms will shine with nostalgic and sleek illumination. 

What Are The Elements of Mid-Century Modern Lighting?

The mid-century modern design celebrates uncluttered but elegant ornamentation with understated functionality. Light fixtures come in different finishes and colors often with interesting patterns and exposed light bulbs. Simple, streamlined shapes give way to muted glass spheres or bright, diamond shades. The wire frames may have unexpected arcs and bows keeping the style as fun as it is unique.

There is a reason why mid-century modern lighting styles endure and find new life in every decade. Maybe it is because it is an ideal blend of the contemporary and the old. Its iconic nod to traditional simplicity with a whimsical twist makes it the focal point and an attractive accent to every classic decor.

Mid-century modern lighting comes in an assortment of types and styles. It is a trend that manages to brighten up any home no matter what your personal interior design choices happen to be. Its sleek lines and bold structures offer flexible and versatile lighting options you are sure to love.

  • Chandeliers — The right chandelier adds character and atmosphere to modern spaces. These larger lighting fixtures serve as centerpieces to any room providing illumination without compromising warmth.  Mid-century modern chandeliers offer a balanced element to your space's vibe.
