Retro Lighting Makes A Comeback

Daniel Burford - Thursday, June 27, 2013

Retro lighting has made its is official! 

Lets face it, lighting is no longer about necessity, designs are no longer sensible and perfunctory. No, no folks lighting is now about innovative and uniquely designed works of art being used to create lighting pieces. Lighting is now used to set a scene, or create an atmosphere.  From classic French Bistros with their chic lighting, to trendy city gastropubs and diner type restaurants, they all now use retro lighting in innovative and fresh ways to create a certain "feeling" or "vibe" in their establishments. 

Light designers are therefore now looking for innovative and exciting ways to create designs that are strongly influenced by the past, but have evolved to create lights that are modern, sophisticated and unique which in turn create a retro inspired product.  Our designers here at JD Burford Ltd have attempted to do just that when creating our fantastic new range of retro inspired lighting. Take a look at our wonderful range of new products such as our JD Café Pendant, the Milan Pendant Light and the Esme Pendant Light.
