Finding the Right lighting for You

The right table lamp, outwardly sculptural chandelier or understated wall pendant can work wonders for your home. While we’re indebted to thinkers like Thomas Edison for critically important advancements in lighting and electricity, we’re still finding new ways to customize illumination to fit our personal spaces all these years later. A wide range of antique and vintage lighting can be found on 1stDibs.

Today, lighting designers like the self-taught Bec Brittain have used the flexible structure of LEDs to craft glamorous solutions by working with what is typically considered a harsh lighting source. By integrating glass and mirrors, reflection can be used to soften the glow from LEDs and warmly welcome light into any space.

Although contemporary innovators continue to impress, some of the classics can’t be beat. 

Just as gazing at the stars allows you to glimpse the universe’s past, vintage chandeliers like those designed by Gino Sarfatti and J. & L. Lobmeyr, for example, put on a similarly stunning show, each with a rich story to tell.

As dazzling as it is, the Arco lamp, on the other hand, prioritizes functionality — it’s wholly mobile, no drilling required. Designed in 1962 by architect-product designers Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, the piece takes the traditional form of a streetlamp and creates an elegant, arching floor fixture for at-home use.

There is no shortage of modernist lighting similarly prized by collectors and casual enthusiasts alike — there are Art Deco table lamps created in a universally appreciated style, the Tripod floor lamp by T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, Greta Magnusson Grossman's sleek and minimalist Grasshopper lamps and, of course, the wealth of mid-century experimental lighting that emerged from Italian artisans at Arredoluce, FLOS and many more are hallmarks in illumination innovation

With decades of design evolution behind it, home lighting is no longer just practical. Crystalline shaping by designers like Gabriel Scott turns every lighting apparatus into a luxury accessory. A new installation doesn’t merely showcase a space; carefully chosen ceiling lights, table lamps and floor lamps can create a mood, spotlight a favorite piece or highlight your unique personality.

The sparkle that your space has been missing is waiting for you amid the growing collection of antique, vintage and contemporary lighting for sale on 1stDibs.

Questions About Extraordinary Ceiling Light
  • 1stDibs ExpertOctober 12, 2021
    A flush ceiling light shines light downward and sits flush against the ceiling. Flush ceiling lights are good for areas with shorter ceilings and for keeping dust and debris away from the bulb and shade because there is no space between the ceiling and the light itself. Shop a range of antique and vintage flush ceiling lights on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertAugust 17, 2021
    A ceiling mounted light can refer either to flush mount lights, which is mounted flush to the ceiling or recessed lighting, which is a bulb that’s installed into a hollow opening in the ceiling.
  • 1stDibs ExpertOctober 12, 2021
    The best lighting depends on your space and style. It’s best to have multiple sources of light at different heights to ensure uniform illumination. With low ceilings, the ceilings should be painted white for a highly reflective surface. Flush mount lighting fixtures or a ceiling fan with a light is good for low ceilings. Shop a range of antique and vintage lighting fixtures on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 3, 2023
    Circle ceiling lights are called recessed light fixtures. In most spaces, they provide ambient light by focusing illumination down onto the room below. Shop a range of ceiling lights from some of the world's top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertAugust 17, 2021
    As its name implies, a flush mount ceiling light is mounted flush to the ceiling. They’re a good alternative to recessed lighting.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    The best lighting for a kitchen ceiling is really a matter of preference. Some may opt for incandescent light, which provides a soft, warm yellowish light. Others may prefer halogen lights, which produce a crisp white light that is optimal for task lighting. Those who are concerned with energy use may prefer fluorescent lights, which have a long life.
