American Diner Lights Showcase

American diner lights are an increasingly popular style of fitting. Inspired by the stainless steel exteriors and metallic surfaces of the diners that were so synonymous with US culture in the 50s, 60s & 70s. The stunning American Diner range from Searchlight pays tribute to these iconic eateries, with a selection of traditional ceiling and wall lights.

These fittings certainly have a retro feel about them, with gleaming metallic finishes, decorative yet practical designs, and a subtly industrial look – perhaps a trace of the American railroad from whence the diners themselves originated back in the 1920s. Lyco stocks a wide variety of American Diner light fittings, meaning you can easily add a touch of American style to any premises or home.

The American Diner Lighting Range

American Diner Semi Flush Fitting in Antique BrassThe American Diner Semi-Flush Fitting has an IP44 rating to indicate possible Zone 1 and 2 bathroom use. This light looks fantastic in kitchen and dining areas, too, whether in the home or a restaurant. Much like many original American diner lights, it is compact in design and ideal for a low-ceilinged room.
American Diner 3 Light (Dual Mount) in Satin Silver

Offering a choice of semi-flush installation or normal pendant use, Searchlight’s 3-Light and 5-Light dual mount fittings cater for any height of ceiling. Install these eye-catching luminaires over dining tables or a kitchen island.

American Diner Antique Brass Pendant LightLike all items in this range, the American Diner Pendant comes in a choice of metallic finishes. The glass is finished differently, too, with clear or frosted options. The former allows a slightly crisper light, whilst still cutting out glare with its ribbed surface. It also projects an attractive pattern onto ceilings. Frosted glass produces a softer light, and has a pleasing white finish to suit many styles of décor.
American Diner Wall Light in Antique Brass

Ornate wall lights are another part of American Diner heritage, common as they were in the original dining cars of trains and alongside diner booths. Searchlight’s American Diner Wall Light is elegantly designed with a characteristic gleaming metallic finish, and offers convenient independent control with its on/off pull cord.
