The wave of Mid-Century Modern design has taken over the marketplace. As one of the most popular trends in interior styling today, finding the right lighting fixtures to achieve this look can be an overwhelming endeavor. Here’s a step by step guide on how to pick your perfect mid-century lighting fixtures, without actually taking a step “back” in time.


CLEAN AND SIMPLEfrederick-ramond-broadway

Keep it simple.  Smooth style lines and basic shape structures are your friend when searching for lighting fixtures for Mid-Century Modern spaces.  Less is more here- the simpler, the better.



Incorporate warm, neutral fabrics into your product selections.  The Drum Shade pendant is your friend here.  Bringing in a woven texture, like the one on this fixture from Quoizel can add a pop of interest to your space, while still exuding a strong, simple silhouette for a modern interior.




It is no secret, warm wood tones are a key product choice in mid-century modern designs.  Many lighting manufacturers have several fixtures embracing this raw material. Whether it be the main element in a hanging pendant, or a small wooden accent incorporated into a wall sconce- wood is where it’s at.


A classic neutral packed with a powerful punch, white is a staple in modern design.  Having more neutral elements in your room will lend a sense of importance to other items of color that are incorporated into the space.  Don’t be afraid of it’s lack of pigment- White can speak volumes.kichler_danika_43680wh_livingroom_sq
