Living Room Lighting: The Charm Of The Mid-Century Modern Design

In Need Of Time Travel Powers?

 Covet Lighting got inspired by the undeniable charm of the Mid-Century Modern Lighting Design

Mid-Century Modern Design is characterized by clean lines, gentle organic curves, and adoration for different materials. This interior design style celebrates functionality, and this is still a key tenant when decorating homes of the 21st century. On the other hand, color is also a major component of mid-century modern. Also, the fusion between indoors and outdoors is really present here. While some homeowners will commit to a fully mid-century home, anyone can easily infuse this look into their living rooms with a few simple tweaks. This living room looks futuristic, but it isn’t a total departure from the past.

The first mid-century lighting piece we can see in this project is the Blakey Suspension Lamp. Blakey Suspension Lamp is a hanging lamp, which mirrors the era and modern art. It has a symbiosis between a strong presence to highlight a space, and the simplicity of the shapes, and their proportions adjusted to the reality of our day. It is presented in its standard version with a matte black structure, with shades and the central sphere highlighted in gold, an option given to give greater elegance.

The mid-century floor lamp we can see in this beautiful living room is the Scofield floor lamp. Scofield Floor Lamp has five chrome lights all supported by a white brass base. Each light and bracket rotate separately allowing different light focuses. The mid-century modern floor lamp has round lampshades in aluminum, that can support different activities and create an industrial design in the room. With matte white and a nickel-plated finish, the Scofield Floor Lamp can be customized with any RAL color of your choosing, adding a more personalized and welcoming atmosphere to your modern industrial interior design.

Following the same aesthetic with the mid-century modern style, for this modern living room, we suggest the Diana Wall Lamp. Diana Wall Lamp is a vintage industrial inspired by the classic designs of the mid-century modern age. A true industrial design icon, Diana has a mount and swing arm handmade in brass, with a lampshade made in aluminum. The counterweight we find at the extremity is made out of steel for a more secure grip. While the mount and body boast a stunning nickel-plated finish, the shade and counterweight are lacquered a glossy red, with the inside of the lamp being matte white for a smoother cast of light.

The last mid-century lighting piece we suggest for this mid-century modern living room is the Turner Table Lamp. Turner Table Lamp was inspired by the electrifying and memorable dance moves of the iconic pop singer. Turner is a large table lamp handmade in brass and aluminum. The body has a gold plated finish, while the shade was lacquered with a black matte on the outside and a gold powder paint on the inside, so as not to create an uncomfortable glaze for the user. Its five movable arcs can be rotated into the desired position, which gives this table lamp a sense of fun and allows you to create the best composition to fit your modern home decor. A versatile piece, that can be used in almost any room of your house, this brass desk lamp looks its best when placed in a modern home office or art deco-inspired living room.
