Trend Watch: Industrial Light Fixtures and Home Accessories6/27/2016
The industrial look of old warehouses has been on trend for quite awhile now, but it is really gaining steam with lighting fixtures and home accessories. Industrial accessories typically include unpolished metal, wood, filament bulbs and other raw materials like brick or iron. Popular materials are bronze, brass or anything that evokes an antiqued feel or an unfinished look.
We have hundreds of industrial light fixtures and home accessories but we did the difficult task of choosing five of our favorites for you to better understand this blossoming trend.
This five light chandelier by Savoy House is one of our most popular lighting fixtures right now, and it comes with a really great price tag as well. The finish is English Bronze and the fixture spans just over two feet wide. It would make for a stunning statement piece over a long reclaimed wood dinner table.
This is a perfect example of an industrial light fixture, as it incorporates both antiqued metal and wood. Two of these rustic pendants would look great on either side of a big leather couch. (Bonus points if the couch has a worn patina look to it). Just add a filament bulb and you’ve got yourself a quintessential industrial look!
The angular style of this metal armchair is a dead giveaway that it falls into the industrial trend. The expertly crafted leather has an artisanal quality that most armchairs cannot rival. The manufacturer is Dimond and the finish is tobacco and black iron. This would look great in the same room as any of the lighting fixtures we’ve included in this post!
This pendant is about as industrial as it gets, what with the antique brass finish and exposed nails and wiring. A great place for this would be over a center island in a kitchen. You could just do two pendants or up to four or five, depending on how big the center island is. This one light pendant is a part of Elegant Lighting’s Industrial collection, which includes two finishes. If the brass finish isn’t quite your style, we carry a similar pendant in brushed nickel.
This fan is considered vintage industrial and was inspired by old metal salvage finds. Finish options for this fan are Roman Bronze, pictured, and Rustic Iron – both of which fit perfectly into the industrial look. The fan holds two light bulbs and comes with a remote so you can change the airflow and lighting with just a touch of a button.
Because we only included five light fixtures and home accessories in this post, we encourage you to take a look at what other industrial items we carry. As always, we offer free shipping and a price match guarantee. Happy industrializing!
