Industrial style is wildly popular! Find 35 industrial lighting ideas for your home here, featuring handmade solutions.
Welcome to our gallery featuring a wide array of incredible industrial lighting ideas for your home!
The basis of industrial design involves utilitarian surfaces, stripped back architecture, and salvaged objects. Industrial style has exploded in popularity over the past decade, mostly due to its affordability.
Industrial style can be based in DIY projects that take salvaged objects like wood, mason jars, and combine them with newer elements to create utilitarian objects that combine form with function.
An industrial style home is modest, honest, and inviting, and it reminds visitors of days long gone. Industrial design shares some elements with modern design; namely solid lines and the absence of access.
Flea market finds are important to industrial style rooms; don’t be afraid to repurpose items that others might see as junk. Wooden crates can be reinforced and become coffee tables, old lockers into storage, and old ladders into unique shelving.
Lighting is one of the most recognizable elements in any industrial style home. You may see individual pendant lights with enameled shades, or more commonly, aluminum bulb cages. You may also see steel or ribbed glass shades.
The above light fixture is decidedly industrial, and embodies the form and function element of industrial design, as it doubles as a bookend. You can learn more here.
While you can purchase these types of light fixtures at major retailers, it can be worth it to visit small retailers who can custom-make a light fixture exactly to your specifications.
We’ve assembled a gallery of fantastic industrial light fixtures from both large retailers and small retailers that we hope you’ll love!
