Popular locations for industrial lighting
Industrial light fixtures can make a gorgeous feature almost anywhere, in both commercial and residential locations. Industrial lights are typically more robust and offer a more utilitarian look that makes it great for rooms with both more and less decoration.
Take a look at some popular locations to include this style of lighting.
Industrial lighting can be a great practical solution for illuminating a kitchen, while also adding a touch of style to the space.
The simplicity of the fittings makes it easy to add to any style space and it does not overpower or clash with the interior. However, industrial-style fittings do work best when included in a kitchen with industrial features, such as wood countertops or metal shelves.
There are many large repurposed industrial vintage lights available, such as ship lamps and hanger lights. These are fantastic for commercial spaces, especially those with higher ceilings.
With a wide variety of metal options available, it is easy to find a fitting that matches the hardware or aesthetic of a restaurant’s interior.
Modern or Vintage Industrial Lighting?
Here at Fritz Fryer, we have a great selection of both modern and vintage industrial light fittings.
Our collection of modern industrial lighting is quite vast, and has all been handmade and finished in our onsite workshop.
Modern lighting offers you the flexibility of choosing the size and finish. It is a lot easier to match your light to the hardware in your home with modern lighting, and the option to bespoke finish your light means that you can achieve a perfect match!
It also means you can include multiple industrial lights to create a cohesive space. Whereas trying to source many of the same vintage lights can be time consuming.
Why not include a gorgeous piece from the past? We have a great selection of reclaimed industrial light fittings. The team in our onsite Herefordshire workshop source and restore vintage industrial lights, which are added to our website or restored upon request.
Period properties and refurbished industrial units are a great place to add industrial lighting. Quite often this is the style of lighting that would have been found in the building, so they will fit seamlessly into the interior and create a cohesive space.
You may have some of your own vintage industrial lights that you’re not quite sure what to do with. Speak to a member of our restoration team to discuss how they can help you in restoring them.
Is industrial lighting still in style?
There are a few different ways to refer to the industrial style, such as urban industrial style, warehouse industrial style and industrial chic. It is an interior design trend that takes inspiration from the old repurposed factory spaces of New York, in the 1950s and 60s.
Some key elements of this style are: exposed brick and unfinished surfaces such as concrete and stone floors, weathered wood, building systems such as exposed pipes and light fixtures. It is a utilitarian design aesthetic that is combined with worn/aged textures and fittings.
The aesthetic became widely popular in the late 2000s and continues to maintain its popularity, still being incorporated into homes and commercial spaces through features such as industrial light fixtures and exposed brick.
