Vintage Industrial Lighting

November 24, 2010 | By | Comments (0)

Vintage Industrial style doesn’t seem to be going out of fashion anytime soon — I see more and more big box retailers jumping on the trend wagon and embracing it with open arms. Recently while browsing the always fabulous Restoration Hardware website, I came across some of their new lighting – some vintage with definite French influence, others more industrial 1930s, and together this stuff works just brilliantly in a room. I also came across their amazing discount, which I’ve detailed at the bottom of this post so make sure you check it out!

Cast-Iron Sewing Factory Task Table Lamp

I also still adore the whole vintage modern wave — mixing clean, streamlined furnishings with quirky retro lighting, art, and even a curvy table or chair to break up the perfect lines. There is something so casually elegant when it comes to gently mixing periods, styles, even mixing in patterns from many different countries collected from your travels (or the internet!). There is so much to be said for artful presentation, a well-curated home, isn’t there?




Burlap Barrel Chandelier


What do you think of these gorgeous lights above? I adore the Burlap pendant made in Poland fashioned after a typical Moroccan design because I find linen so tactile, simply, raw, yet very classic… I also love how the fabric is whip stitched to the frame, what a subtle yet gorgeous detail.

Vintage Two-Tier Baluster Chandelier

I adore the Vintage two-tier Baluster chandelier for its very Belgium beginnings — I love seeing it hanging above a rustic farmhouse table or in a living room with a very streamlined modern sofa.
