You want something truly unique. If you’re looking for a fixture that can serve as a focal point—say, above an island or within a breakfast nook—a vintage light is the way to go. Getting that distinctive look doesn’t require going fully vintage, though; you can also pair a reproduction fixture with a vintage shade.
You only need one or two lights. Like most antiques, vintage lights can be hard to find in pairs or suites. If coordinating fixtures is a concern, you’ll likely need to limit the number of lights you use. On the other hand, if you don’t care whether the chandelier matches the sconce, using a variety of vintage lights in similar styles (for example, Art Deco sconces with different backplates) can help facilitate an eclectic look, as if the house evolved over time.
If Madsen had to pick between the two, he says he’d choose warm white, which is a soft yellow-toned light. It has a few benefits with only one small drawback. “Warm white LED lights make you feel warm and comfortable while generating little heat,” he explains. “It’s an emotional effect that is subtle, but when compared to the starkness of cool white LED light, this effect becomes obvious.”
