Industrial Lighting Marries Functionality, Durability with Color, High Style

Do you, like so many other homeowners, love the industrial look? Even if you don’t live in a trendy Manhattan loft or a downtown Seattle condo, you can still get the rugged industrial look with careful dècor choices.

While many major details contribute to the overall industrial look of a place — including an open floor plan, concrete floors or counter tops, wood beams, duct work, or exposed brick — you can add some industrial flair with furniture, lighting, and other accessories that don’t require a major remodel.

For example, our line of Industrial Furniture contains pieces that will add a certain roughhewn look to your space. The Hudson Vintage Industrial Sofa Table features a sturdy steel base and a Merritt Island Hard Pine top. Simply slide the Hudson under the sofa, chair or bed for a modern and highly functional table!

Switching out some of your existing lights with more industrial style fixtures will instantly change the look of your space. If you use the same placement for your lights, it’s a quick and easy changeover for any qualified electrician. Our collection of Vintage Industrial Lights includes some terrific industrial pendants including the Indy Porcelain Socket Pendant which brings back the bare bulb style from the early 20th century and updates it with a porcelain socket and custom cord options.

If you love the industrial style but still want a splash of color, don’t miss the Veronica Valencia Collection of industrial lighting. It’s a Barn Light Electric exclusive collection created in collaboration with the L.A.-based designer. Featuring sleek shades and rugged pipe mountings, these industrial wall sconces, cord- and stem-mounted pendants will bring a fresh look to your home or office.

The Sophie SoHo Industrial Pendant, for example, is an American made cord hung pendant suitable for kitchens, bathrooms, kids’ rooms and enclosed porches. Choose Teal or Blush Pink for a soft, pastel look or go bold with Magenta to make your lighting a focal point.

For a classic look, the Penelope SoHo Stem Mount Pendant features a shallow bowl warehouse shade shade affixed to a rugged pipe stem mount. These industrial lights are hand crafted here in our own facility and are rugged enough for commercial use. Enjoy free shipping on every order!
