Swag lamps were in trend during 1970s and 1980s, their popularity was immense during that time because they were the only classiest and modern style lighting fixtures of those eras. The most common style was the chain style through which the lamps were hanging over the kitchen countertops, dining table, living room table and breakfast nook, providing direct lighting to the broad areas. Even hanging swag lighting fixtures were installed over the basement pool tables as well.

The plug in option helps you put the swag lighting into action without having to spend any money on the installation.

The lighting casts a very nice colored glow depending on the shade color used.

Swag lamps can be added to the interior of entertainment room, basement game room, old style dinning room, and in any room where you want to create an eclectic style decor without spending much money.
