Vintage midcentury lighting

Classic Modern stocks vintage midcentury modern retro lighting with an emphasis on Scandinavian and in particular Danish design. All our lights and lamps are high-quality original vintage pieces from the 1950s, 1960s or 1970s, many designed and produced by the leading architects, designers and lighting companies of the period. A baseline of light wear consistent with careful previous use should be expected; anything beyond this will be highlighted in the item's description.
