When choosing a living room light fixture, or any room actually, the incredible amount of options can be overwhelming! You know I love a good basket light and of course, modern farmhouse lights had their moment, but if you ask me – I’m all about some mid-century styles these days. The minimal lines and bold shapes add instant impact to any room. Here, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite mid century modern lights that would work in so many spaces!

- Semi Flush Mount 3 Arm Chandelier (this would be great for a large room)
- Simple Sputnik Light (I can see this in a kids room or office)
- Black Mid Century Chandelier (this is the one I chose for our living room)
- Duck Bill Flush Mount Light (ooh, this one would be so pretty in a dining space!)
- Pinwheel Sputnik Light (also available in black and would be charming in an office)
- Adjustable Altona Chandelier (this one would be pretty in a bedroom or entryway)
As I tackled my little living room space, I first looked to swap out the lighting because it is always one of the biggest bangs for the buck (that plus paint and rugs). I explored a few different options and even considered a drum light but ultimately landed on this stunning Mid Century Modern Chandelier from Illuminate Vintage.

Mid Century Modern Lights
Why? you might ask. Well, let me tell you. The multi arm light elegantly takes up space without overpowering it. I beautifully connects the wood beams and open space.
Plus, I love some good contrast so my white and wood walls provided a good backdrop for the matte black finish.
Because it’s a small room, I opted for small sputnik light with a 7″ downrod. A bigger, more expansive room could’ve handled a wider light with more arms. This one fits just perfectly, don’t you think?
