Why We Love Contemporary + Modern Lighting
Historically, modern lighting came first, rooted in the Bauhaus school, which birthed modern design in the 1920s. Rejecting the heavy brass and floral styles of the past, modern lighting featured simple, geometric forms made of glass and bright metal. Mid-century modern lighting specifically refers to lighting designed and produced for the home in the late 1940s to about 1960. Contemporary lighting refers to a post-1960s style that softened the geometric forms and added bold, solid colors. Both the contemporary and modern lighting fixtures produced today typically follow the original definitions while incorporating new materials and manufacturing techniques.
Lumens is at the forefront of offering the latest in these contemporary and modern designs, along with a large selection of traditional and transitional lighting options.
