Everyone who dreams about industrial interior should change their lighting to resemble old factory interior lighting. Thanks to that the room will gain an industrial flair.

Inspiration taken from a factory

Factory lamps were supposed to be functional, without any decorative details. They are mainly made of metal or materials imitating metal and became a great addition to simple, modern interiors. The construction and shape of the lamps illuminate the rooms very precisely – this type of lamp is perfect for the dining room or for the kitchen placed over the kitchen island.

Industrial massive metal lamps, bulbs connected together or a bulb in a cage-like shade look stylish and clumsy at the same time. They make the interior very modern and have a unique character.

Factory-like lighting fits mainly to Scandinavian and industrial interiors. In other interiors such lighting may look grotesque.

The beginning of fashion for loft lighting

In the 80s of the 20th century, heavy metal lamps, which were attached to the ceilings by chains, were the most common lighting in factories. When industrial interiors began to be changed into apartments and commercial premises, the fashion for loft interiors came. Recently, such interiors have become more and more popular. Nowadays, interior designers more and more often choose loft lamps, which give the rooms a raw look. Some models of such lamps designed by famous designers reach dizzying prices.
