Retro looks back: Everything old can be new
Retro and Industrial décor dominate current trends in home and workplace interior design. But, designers are putting their creative spin on traditions to form a distinctively new approach to furniture, fabrics, tile, and lighting.
New combinations of textures, colors, and finishes invite Retro and Industrial light fixtures, proving that everything old can be new again.
Retro styles deliberately revisit once popular trends. The designer may place a vintage item in a new setting or refinish an item from the past to fit in new places. Some designers even combine classic pieces from the 1960s with those from the 1990s.

Industrial looks utilitarian
The Industrial style lacks pretension. It’s workaday and bare. It’s functional and uses basic materials. And, you might expect pipes, faucets, gears, and wheels, the things associated with the Industrial Age.
The Vault industrial look:
At 42.5” from the ceiling, URSA has a contemporary aesthetic based on simple functional needs. Such designs once lit engineering draft rooms or the lobbies at manufacturing facilities. The triangular lamps spread 49” across while hanging at 54”. You can imagine Ursa in black pearl chrome hanging above your home office or highlighting your black and white tiled contemporary kitchen or bath. Click here for more information
Retro & Industrial Style
Some accents and fixtures integrate Retro and Industrial styles. Designers capture industrial pieces from years gone by, and then they repurpose their materials and original forms into new uses.

ALLETA, for example, uses gold brass, burgundy leather, and old-school light bulbs to create something markedly new. The cluster of 12 retro glass globes throws a bright light for a tall foyer or steep stairwell.
