Industrial Style Tips
Industrial lighting is the perfect way to add a touch of sophisticated edginess to any style interior.
Defining Industrial Style
What was once only in warehouses, businesses and mechanic shops have found its way in homes and have come to be known as “industrial style”.
This style used to not be a style. In fact, this was considered a fact of workaday life. Somewhere along the way, though, people have come to appreciate the visual appeal and the lack of pretension of salvaged objects, stripped architecture and utilitarian surfaces. From here on, this has exploded into a trend. Today, you can find industrial lights in multi-million dollar homes as in lofts in a gritty area of town.
Is Industrial Style for You?
If you are someone who is not fond of going to big-box furniture stores and would prefer a salvage yard to get your home pieces from, you should love industrial style. Your home is laden with worn textures and aged woods along with aged metals and irons with rich patinas. You view things as beautiful simply because they serve the purpose that they are made for. You are someone who is unaffected by trends and would prefer something that is simple for as long as it gets the job done.
Why Industrial Style Works
Timeless industrial beauty is a trend that always impresses uniting fashion with function. It is truly a multi-faceted treasure.
This style comes with proletarian and hardworking quality that resonates, simply because it celebrates humble materials and it can be as affordable as you need it to be. Baring only the essentials, this is a style that shows of the beautiful interaction between function and pure form. It is unassuming and comfortable in its own skin, making it all the more interesting.
Just because industrial lights focus on function than aesthetic beauty, it does not mean that they are not well designed. They are simply created with light output as their primary goal. Look for unencumbered light output, no ornamentation and familiar shapes.
