“Industrial-chic” and “loft style” have become the industry’s hottest buzz words as industrial style lighting continues to prove itself as a top lighting trend in the design world. Versatile and interesting, industrial style lighting, as design blogger Wendy Hyde describes it, is “bold enough to make a statement, yet quiet enough for those who just want to get their feet wet in the style.” And it’s everywhere. “You’re as likely to find industrial décor within the walls of a multimillion-dollar mansion as in a converted loft in a gritty part of town,” says design journalist Lisa Frederick.
This aesthetic is not only about edgy metal finishes. One of the most popular ways to add an industrial touch to transitional and contemporary interiors is with bare bulb industrial lighting. Bare bulb lighting is a fantastic way to show off vintage bulbs, clear or frosted globes and other unique lamping options that add visual interest.
