What is Mid Century Modern Lighting?
Mid century modern lighting is characterized by a combination of simple shapes, bold color, and space age design. Architecture and home decor drew inspiration from what became dubbed the "Atomic Age" as the world became captivated in the 1940s and 1950s by new discoveries on space exploration and on the molecular level.
Mid century modern light fixtures are designed to mimic celestial bodies, molecular structures, and orbiting satellites. One great example of such lighting is in the Sputnik style which includes countless configurations. These fixtures' multiple-arm design lend them to be easily recognized, and arguably for that reason, popular. Sputnik light fixtures also work well in spaces ranging from eclectic to uber modern.
