Trend Alert: Industrial Chic

One of the most popular trends in interior design today is what many call “industrial chic”. We asked our friends at Supply.com to share their expertise on how this trend is playing out in today’s most up-to-date interiors – especially as it relates to lighting. Here’s what they had to say!

Both designers and homeowners are mixing fixtures and finishes that were previously found in warehouses and on film sets with softer patterns and fabrics.  Typically, lighting and hardware provide the industrial while furniture, wall paint, and accessories bring the chic.

Investing in industrial fixtures is a safe bet as their classic designs are always in style, no matter what is trending in home décor. Progress Lighting manufactures many industrial-style light fixtures. Read below to learn about some of the most popular industrial-style fixtures on the market.

Progress Lighting Brookside Wall-Mounted Lanterns

The Brookside outdoor wall-mounted lanterns are reminiscent of lighting found over barn doors and mount along ocean docks. Today’s homeowners use these lanterns above their front and back doors, along the side of their sheds and pool houses, and beside their garages (as the photo above demonstrates). Choose from Copper, Gilded Iron, or Antique Nickel.

Progress Lighting Brookside Pendant Lights

Much like the outdoor wall-mounted lanterns from the Brookside collection, these pendant lights were inspired by vintage barn lights. Both the full-size pendants and the mini-pendants would look fantastic over a kitchen island or a dining room table. Or get creative and hang two mini-pendants on either side of a bathroom vanity mirror to add industrial-style throughout the home.

Progress Lighting Fresnel Pendant Lights

Inspired by the heavy-duty fixtures used to light Hollywood movie sets, the pendant lights of the Fresnel collection add weight to a room. Available in Brushed Nickel and Oil Rubbed Bronze, you can match your pendant lights to your kitchen appliances and hardware. Hang above your kitchen island or office desk.

Progress Lighting One-Light Pendants

Simple, sweet, and industrial chic! That’s how we describe the classic one-light pendant fixtures. Similar to those lights commonly seen in offices and barns in the 1940s and 1950s, these classic lights will never go out of style. Available in several finishes including White, Venetian bronze, and Dark Green, one-light pendants look fantastic over the kitchen table.
