Shabby Chic is one of the few styles that have a specific author. This style was invented by the Englishwoman Rachel Ashevel, who bought various things at flea markets and managed to create real masterpieces from what she acquired. Among the many knick-knacks and decors there were various lamps, and they became an integral part of this style. And now, when shabby chic is made of artificially aged things, lamps play an important role here.
It is already known from the name that when creating such interiors, various old things are especially valuable. Roughly speaking, anything Grandma has left behind will be the perfect material. Despite such an attachment to charming old objects, the style itself is relatively young, it appeared only in the late 1980s.
The main principle of shabby chic is to have as many different parts as possible while having similar characteristics. Lamps selected for such interiors must also meet the general requirements:
Shabby chic suggests soft lighting, so huge brass chandeliers or plafonds adjacent to walls and ceilings are clearly not suitable here. Modern solutions of LED strips and other technological innovations should also be avoided.
