In designing a space, antiques such as furniture and art are typically the go-to considerations for emulating vintage styles; and yet, perhaps the most critical element of period-specific aesthetics is found in lighting. At the surface, some might consider this to just be a matter of “how bright you want the room”, but lighting is comprised of everything from the physical construction of a fixture to the luminance, warmth, and power consumption of individual bulbs. Vintage lighting and décor has ever been a provider of style and class, with old-school aesthetics granting a personable charm to storefronts, an adventurous mood to dining, and a timeless sense of character to our homes.

At least, these are the advantages typically named when talking about LED lighting in homes and businesses. At the same time LEDs also have some lesser-known benefits when lighting the exteriors of city buildings such as high-rises and skyscrapers, and for reasons beyond the usual terms of cost and energy-efficiency.
