Many younger designers are fascinated by items from 60s and 70s. There are some interesting modern retro lamp shades, designed in the spirit of best Danish tradition, made usually of polypropylene plastic resulting in retro lamp shades with a refreshing modern touch.
The Konkylie light was designed by Louis Weisdorf for the Tivoli Garden in Copenhagen in 1963. It was partly inspired at a technical level by Verner Panton's Moon lamp. Louis Weisdorf created the design for his next pendant light called Turbo in 1965. Consisting of 12 uniform aluminium lamellae spiral-twisted to form a flower-like sphere, the Turbo was partly inspired by Japanese rice-paper lanterns.
Many people especially children loves butterflies so much and through these butterfly lamps, they will be able to enjoy the view and witness their beauty.

Moooi Fringe lamp has its own signature style with a fringe bordering the shade's edges. It comes in colors of black or white, Foscarini Diesels' Tri-P combines the style of these two major brands in an innovative manner. You can manipulate the light emitted by adjusting the fabric used as the lamp shade.
The term "retro" derives from the Latin word retro, meaning "backwards" or "in past times" and refers to a nostalgic view towards the past. Retro style design can be any kind of interior design that turns to the past decades for inspiration, but usually "retro" is used in connection with design styles that take their cue from the 1960s and 1970s. An important aspect of a retro interior is lighting. The popular lamp shade design in 1960s and 1970s was inspired by op-art or optical art (a genre of pop-art) which makes use of optical illusions.
In contrast to Konkylie the lamellae were positioned vertically, reducing the accumulation of dust. Other designer famous for his futuristic looking modern pendant lamps is Simon Karkov. His lamps - NORM 03, NORM 06 and particularly the NORM 69 are classical examples of best Danish design. NORM 69 an award-winning lamp consisting of 69 identical white plastic parts though designed in 1969 is still sold widely all over the world. It was produced in a few sizes and it is very suitable for minimalistic modern interiors. NORM 69 is a real favourite with contemporary interior designers.
Design Considerations When Choosing a Nursery Lamp, When choosing a lamp for a little girl's nursery, take the overall color scheme and decorating theme into consideration. If you have an overall room motif, such as teddy bears, baby blocks or butterflies, you can add a decorative touch to the room if you choose a lamp with a coordinating pattern. There are so many different nursery lamp designs available that you shouldn't have a problem finding one to match the room's overall decor. However, if you can't find one that fits the bill, you can always decorate a plain lamp so that it matches. Lamps with a dainty design can add a very feminine look to the room. However, always choose a lamp that has good overall balance and a weighted base, so that it won't tip over easily, even if bumped accidentally by yourself or your baby.
