Mid-century Lighting

Accentute and illuminate rooms of any style with unique light fixtures, chandeliers and lamps from west elm. Choose lights with simple yet bold shapes and designs including space-age chandeliers for your dining room lighting and overarching floor lamps that for the living room. If you are looking to add interest to your home design, our light fixtures and lamps add that special touch. Choose floor, table and ceiling lamps that echo your personality and your taste while maintaining a contemporary demeanor. Drum shades give a retro flair to mid-century lamps. Choose from several styles of floor lamps that look terrific with drum shades, including lamps with bases made of brass, iron, acrylic and other materials. Look for lamps with simple construction or lamps with a tripod base of wood and other materials.

A mid-century lamp is a superb investment because you can transport it anywhere you need extra brightness or a room accent. Move your lamp from the living area to the bedroom to the office, and it works in each space as if it were made to be there. Use linear lamps when you want to maintain an edge to the room. Linear lamps are available with LED technology to save energy costs while you keep things lit. If you need some curves in your space, go for lamps and light fixtures with globe or conical shades. Globe lamps feature plain orb-shaped shades that work with any decor. The opaque shades eliminate glare while providing ample brightness for your activities. Mobile-style globe shades are conversation pieces that are perfect for gaming rooms and home theater rooms. Choose globe lights in a wide array of fun and unusual bases for your dining room, office, bedside table or entryway console.

In rooms where walls are painted dark, use large mirrors to reflect the light from mid-century lamps. Framed and frameless mirrors are available in shapes that are faceted, industrial-themed and encircled with artistic elements. Edison-style bulbs have an industrial, vintage flair that creates a comfortable ambiance. We offer several types of light fixtures in thoughtful and mid-century styles that feature light bulbs with exposed filaments. Order these light fixtures for illumination in offices, above counters with stools and above your foyer. Transform your space with the right details like our tasteful, well-made lamps that take rooms to the next level.
