Vintage LED is thrilled to announce that we will be appearing at Decor + Design, Australia’s premier interior design trade show. Decor + Design will be held at the historic Melbourne Exhibition Centre from 16 – 19 July, 2015.
Décor + Design provides a wonderful opportunity for industry professionals and exhibitors to network, swap ideas and discuss new products and trends. Vintage LED will be showcasing a range of our newest and popular bulbs, including the Diamond Filament, the A165 Giant Teardrop and G125 Trilateral filament.
Entry is free, but restricted. Since this is a trade show, and not for the general public, all visitors must be a verifiable member of the furniture and soft-furnishing industry, and over 16 years of age. Pre-registration can be done online here. You can also register upon arrival.
Once you're in, please drop by the Vintage LED stall, have a chat, and check out some of our wonderful range of bulbs and accessories. We’ll be at Stand I37.
See you there!
Research into Retail lighting suggests that a bright everywhere approach may not be the best an encouraging customers to feel comfortable when they make a purchase. We probably all know the 7-Eleven effect when everything is lit in the whitest possible light - a definite shock to the system.
A relatively inexpensive and efficient way to include this warm contrast is to include Vintage LED in your shop design. Please get in touch if you would like a product demonstration of Vintage LED Retail lighting options.

VintageLED are proudly Melbournian. We love our single origin in a chic cafe in the morning and multi-course degustation with matching sommelier chosen beverage in a fine diner in the evening. A great article recently published in Broadsheet highlighted the ubiquitous nature of the cafe and restaurant design in Melbourne...
The focus of the article was the copy cat nature of project developers and the design features they chose, but one of the key design elements - carbon filament Edison light bulbs have inadvertently increased energy consumption across the city. Every cafe that used to have half a dozen twirly CFL light bulbs has been redesigned and re-invigorated to include 20, 40 or even 60 hanging light bulbs - given the fact that many Carbon filament light bulbs put out about the same amount of light as a candle - if you have a large space you need more.
Now we agree that the ambience created by the glow of these lights is warming and flattering to us as customers, no one likes to sit under a blue light to eat and drink. But every day when all the cafe, restaurants and bars open and all these lights get switched on - lets say 5,000 maybe at 40W each - that alone is more electricity than one 200W unit at Hazlewood Coal fired power in the LaTrobe valley can supply.
So maybe when super warm Vintage LEDs are available its time to stop the boys shovelling so much coal?
Vintage LED is happy to announce that we will be at The Big Design Market, which runs over this weekend (December 5, 6, 7) in Melbourne. The Big Design Market is Australia’s biggest, well, design market, hosted in the stunning and historic Royal Exhibition Building.
The pendants are available in Wood (as in Rani’s lovely makeover), and Ceramic . They include 3-4m of cord, a 3-pin plug and complimentary ceiling hooks. Installation does not require an electrician.
So please, if you’re heading down to the Big Design Market this weekend (and you should!), drop by, say hi, and be enchanted.
