The glamour of the Golden Era of Hollywood was a period of forgotten time back in the 50’s and 60′ that still has a strong on us in the present day. Its has influences throughout all the cultural aspects of today: movies, magazines, fashion all was reinvented having these god and goodness of Hollywood in mind.
These actors from the vintage era were so glamorous and an inspiration so we decide to pay our homage and (just like we did it for the great actress of this era) we have gather 10 vintage actors that have inspire our life and our work and you can see their influence in any piece of modern lightning made by DelightFULL from the desk lamp to a pendant light they all have a contemporary mid century touch.
