MILES DAVIS

If you don’t know who Miles Davis is. Miles Dewey Davis the third was an American Jazz musician, composer, trumpet player and bandleader. He was one of the most influential figures for the development of Jazz and 20th century music. His legacy inspired the designers of Delightfull to create a lamp collection with his musical inspiration to commemorate his achievements.

The lamps were made in true 1950’s style holding an air of sophistication and elegance. They all have elements of a trumpet to include a part of Miles Davis into the collection. Get inspired yourself by Miles Davis by listening to some of his hits like Blue in Green, So What and Milestones.

JIMI HENDRIX

Another artist that has inspired Delightfull is Jimi Hendrix. This famous guitarist and singer-songwriter is also known as one of the 27 club. Otherwise known as people who were very talented and successful and who died at the age of 27. Jimi Hendrix was an up-coming rock/electric guitarist who played at Woodstock and is seen as one of the most influential electric guitarists in the history of pop music. For some musical inspiration, we suggest you check out his songs All Along the Watchtower, Hey Joe and Purple Haze.

The brand Delightfull got inspired by Hendrix music and success. They created the Hendrix wall lamp, the Hendrix chandelier and the Hendrix suspension lamp. They based their design on the vinyl records he sold for his phenomenal music.

JANIS JOPLIN

Janis Joplin was an American rock, soul, and blues singer-songwriter and is also part of the 27 club. Just as Jimi Hendrix she also sang at Woodstock and is known as the most influential female rockstar of her era. With her unique voice, it was a very clear choice of Delightfull to commemorate her musical inspiration in one of their pieces. With the Janis floor lamp and the Janis table lamp, you get a throwback to the golden sixties and Joplin’s eclectic style. Explore Joplin’s eclectic style through her hit songs Me and Bobby Gee, Piece Of My Heart and Cry Baby.

JOHN COLTRANE

A real pioneer for the music industry was American jazz musician, saxophonist and composer, John Coltrane. He introduced the use of modes and was one of the first to experiment with free jazz. Until this day he is still seen as one of the most influential saxophonist in history. His style can be described as smooth jazz and some of his best songs include this sound like Naima, My One and Only Love and Time after Time.
