Industrial Lighting & Accessories: (36 of Our Favorites And Everything You Need to Get the Look)

//

This week has been all about industrial. From how it began, to the design fundamentals, to a focus on furniture, we’ve brought you the essential info on this style. But before your education is complete, we’ve got one more installment for you today, and it’s all about the finishing touches: lighting and accessories. 

 

Whether it’s a pendant over a kitchen island, a floor lamp in a living room, bedside sconces, or wire baskets in an entryway, industrial lighting and accessories can bring an edgy feel to just about any space. Various types of metal, glass and wire details usually feature prominently in these pieces, and a utilitarian feel that emphasizes functionality. That could be lighting that is more directional and task oriented (pendants, desk lamps, reading lights) as well as storage pieces (wire baskets, bins and trays). Whatever the piece, they all have a masculine feel that can give your space an industrial touch.

 

Ready to get illuminated? It’s time to let you in on the essential elements of lighting and accessories, and show you our favorite options for pendants, sconces, table lamps, accessories, decor and more.

In case you missed either of the posts earlier this week, be sure to check out What is Industrial? and Industrial Furniture. And if you want some background on other styles, check out our posts on What’s Your Interior Design Style, What is Mid-Century Modern? and What is Boho?
