7 Must Have Industrial Lighting Ideas

Your home is a reflection of your personal style and that of your family. It gives guests a glimpse into your world and is the perfect canvas for self-expression. And, let’s be honest, half of the fun of owning a home comes from taking it and making it your own through furniture, décor, and more. It’s amazing how one small change to a room can make it feel like a whole new space that you fall in love with all over again.

One of the most popular design trends today strays from a perfectly tidy and polished look to a more weathered style that favors unique details and a worn-in character. A perfect example of this type of rustic feel can be found in industrial décor, or more specifically, lighting. Today’s industrial light fixtures are full of striking shapes and unexpected combinations of materials, perfect for giving a room a splash of personality.
