The term mid-century-modern was coined during the mid-1950’s and, in the 80’s, author Cara Greenberg made sure to reaffirm it, making it an officially recognized design movement. Luckily, this movement survived until now and everyone is going crazy about it. And with good reason, because with its simple lines and retro style, the mid-century design is always a guarantee that your house will look extremely fancy.
Lighting design is a big deal on what concerns mid-century design. And these retro light fixtures are more than just that: they are eye-catching pieces that bring out the best in a room.

They always make sure to look super cool in whichever room you choose to use them.
