#tbtPrimelite: For 50+ years, globe lights have been an important part of Primelite’s success. These decorative exterior globes from the late 1980’s were an early example of blow-molded globes, which is now common in the construction of modern lighting globes. Just imagine these lights illuminating your yards, streets, and parks! Sometimes retro really is cool!
Here is an original scan of our calendar page highlighting these globes.
#tbtPrimelite | #1980 | #cool
#tbtPrimelite: This week’s #tbt is a shout-out to the coolness that was the 1980’s. With a palette of grays, turquoise, and dusty pinks, chrome was the perfect accent. Primelite, never far from the fashions of the time, introduced a collection of lights for the hippest trendsetters of the decade. Among its collection was this spectacular pendant, appropriately called “Sputnik,” available in sparking metallic finishes; brushed nickel, polished brass and, of course, chrome! With its clear decorative globe lights, this light glistened and glowed, as it filled many sophisticated and stylish homes and offices with light.
#thenandnow: Today Primelite’s catalog still features an updated version of this beauty, known as #70 Sputnik.
