Getting a hold of good and stylish indoor lighting can be tricky and time consuming. Hopping from store to store, wondering which goes with the interior of your room can be a hassle. But online stores make it much easier by allowing you to browse their catalogues and listing down the specifications in an easy to understand manner. And for those who don't really like the idea of browsing sites, check out some light fixtures we've listed below.
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.
The Arco Lamp is a work of art, as well as being immensely functional. The base is made from Carrara marble which comes from a quarry in the Italian Alps. Many of Michelangelo's sculptures were fashioned from this stunning marble which is available in white or black. The base weighs approx 143lbs (65kg) and has a cleverly positioned hole through the middle so that it can be moved with the aid of a broom handle! The design of the lamp is the same today as the day it was first produced except for the technology behind the wiring which is always being improved.
