Vintage lighting is here to stay. A wide range of different venues are utilising vintage lighting to bring an understated-yet-sophisticated vibe to an indoor setting; from hospitality spaces like cafés or restaurants, to commercial enterprises like shops, and even domestic installations, vintage lighting is all the rage. As such, here at TradeSparky we thought it’d be wise to give you an introduction to various vintage lighting options and accessories available to you so you know where to look if you decide to join the vintage lighting trend!
Starting with which lamps to choose…
Here at TradeSparky, we stock a variety of vintage lamps from leading manufacturers for a wide range of uses. Products in BELL’s range of vintage lamps come in an array of unique shapes, finishes and lengths so you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to picking the perfect product to give your property that chic ambient glow that has made vintage lighting so popular. For instance, BELL sell both dimmable and non-dimmable Squirrel cage lamps in amber, which utilise a distinctive lamp design and a 2000K warm white colour temperature to provide that perfect warm glow while also remaining energy conscious, with an A+ energy rating. In addition to these smaller sized lamps, though, BELL also manufacture tubular vintage lamps for if you require, for instance, a lamp for use in a picture light.
Additionally, Sylvania have an excellent range of vintage lamps available, notably their ToLEDo Mirage line, featuring lamps that work as perfect replacements for incandescent multi-filament lamps, also utilising innovative lamp construction and low power consumption (an average rated life of 25,000 hours!) Products in the ToLEDo Mirage range offer the promise of a 300-degree light beam distribution and a low lumen-output to give a perfect, no-glare lighting effect. Perfect for hospitality and residential applications, Sylvania products are available in a wide range of shapes and styles, so you’re not limited in choosing the right lighting look for your installation!

Adding to the look with accessories
Once you’ve selected the perfect lamp for your installation, you’ll want to look at accessories! To add to the rustic feel of the vintage lamp glow, BELL’s vintage pendant and wall light accessories are a great choice. The range includes rope attachments in various lengths, cage accessories and pendant and wall light attachments in a variety of finishes, including antique bronze, brass, satin nickel and gunmetal black. Adding, for instance, a cage accessory to your new lamp can certainly work to set a certain vibe or look in a hospitality environment.
As well as these, JCC offer stylish glazed lanterns for use with E27 cap type lamps, comprised of sturdy die-cast aluminium construction and a toughened glass post top. With a fashionable contemporary design and an IP54 protection rating, these sleek lanterns combine style with durability for a perfect accessory to your vintage lighting.
