A lot of my clients are really digging the vintage industrial look and although they don’t want their entire home looking like a factory from the turn of the century, they are wanting touches of it. I’m not sure if it’s a longing for a time when we could see the mechanics and engineering of things or a love of the angular lines and mixed metals, or if it’s something else entirely. Lighting is an easy way to add some of that industrial romance to your home without it looking overly cold or masculine. I like industrial lighting best when it’s paired with texture. Without it, it tends to feel cold and hard. Because most of these looks use an Edison bulb – the romance and moodiness you can achieve with these fixtures is hard to beat. Think of these lights as indoor Cafe lights – they bring a little bit of party to the mix.
