Motel Sign Nightlights

These Dainty Bespoke Bedroom Lamps are Designed to Look Like Vintage Signs

— September 30, 2015 — Art & Design
Esty shop owner Whimsy Home creates these dainty handmade nightlight designs that are decorated to look like vintage motel signs making them the ideal bedroom lamp to have in both children's and adult rooms.

Whimsy Home is a New York City craft shop that makes these old fashioned nightlight lamps that hook up directly to any electrical outlet. Designer Jasmine Redfern gathers inspiration from old school hotels in Vegans to replicate the signs in miniature form. The designs are colorful and full of whimsy with inscriptions such as, "Star-Lite Motel - Vacancy" and "Dream Land" with a large golden arrow above. These nightlights are made from paints and discarded wood pieces collected from larger lamps made at Whimsy Home so that the wood that would otherwise be tossed out is used.
Trend Themes
1. Vintage-inspired Nightlights - There is an opportunity to create more vintage-inspired nightlights with unique designs that appeal to both children and adults.
2. Eco-friendly Nightlights - Creating nightlights out of discarded materials is a sustainable trend that can be expanded to other lighting products.
3. Bespoke Lighting - The popularity of handmade, customizable nightlights opens up an opportunity for businesses to offer bespoke lighting solutions.
Industry Implications

2. Crafts and DIY - The use of discarded wood and handmade designs aligns with the growing interest in crafts and DIY projects.
3. Sustainable Products - The trend towards eco-friendly nightlights is part of a broader movement towards sustainable products that could disrupt the lighting industry.
