Vintage 1950s Flush Mount Ceiling Light Fixture with Scalloped Fitter Base
Flush mount light fixtures were popular in postwar housing design because of their ability to deliver ambient light while staying unobtrusive in their appearance. It's a good thing, too, because ceiling heights became more standardized and, more often than not, lower in height due to the high demand post-war housing boom. While mid-century flush mount light fixtures fell out of favor in the 1970s and 1980s, they have recently made a comeback as part of the retro and vintage design trends.
