Retro Lighting: Shining the Light on Classic Ford
One of America’s most famous brands has been lighting the way in the auto industry for more than 100 years. For years, Ford enthusiasts have been decking out dens, garages and man caves with Ford tin signs, neon clocks and related decor. Next up: a full line of retro-style table lamps sporting the Ford logo, slogans and classic rides.
The current version of the Ford logo – the Centennial Blue Oval – was unveiled in 20013. Now it’s showcased on a fresh batch of modern-style lamps (five in all!). Each design is a unique incorporation of the brand and looks cool when the light is on or off. It’s easy to see these casting light in a game room, den or on the workbench in the garage.
Made in the USA, these lamps feature a 9″ high shade and brushed nickel base. Standing 21″ high, they’re designed to be noticed and act as the visual center of a room. The lampshades feature wraparound artwork so it can be viewed from any angle.
If nostalgic designs and vintage Ford trucks and cars are your thing, there are several designs, including atomic and replica advertising.
Mustang fan? Today’s popular muscle car started production in the 1960s with eye-popping ad campaigns and signage. For many, the Mustang is truly representative of the retro auto industry. With a revolutionary design, these cars were both fashionable and durable.
And for those who love Ford power performance, there’s a classic design “Powered by” tiled shade, as well as a Ford Racing design.
Did I mention the finishing touch – a classic pull chain for on/off operation?
Are you loving these new Ford lamps as much as I am? Where would you put one – in the garage, at the office? I’d love to hear just how deep your Ford loyalty runs…
