Industrial-style lighting is most often made of metal. It has simple forms and the finish and color may differ, although usually it’s either the natural shade of the metal or something simple and neutral such as black or white. Although they can be elegant, these light fixtures tend to have a rough look and their designs focus mostly on functionality and simplicity.
In the past, “decorating” involved hiding away those parts of a space that reminded inhabitants that the space was actually constructed of something, and that different building materials were necessary in order to make the space function, such as the wiring for wall sconces or ceiling light fixtures. Industrial décor goes against that by adding (or allowing to exist) a raw, unfinished aesthetic. In fact, many design enthusiasts now specifically seek out this ‘unfinished’ look.
Almost any salvaged object constructed of, or including, metal in its design fits in with industrial style. Think used gears, pipes, vehicle parts, and machinery. Keep in mind the colder metals, though (such as aluminum, tin, steel, and iron), rather than warmer toned metals (e.g., gold, bronze, and brass). Grouping these industrial pieces together will create a greater impact. Repurposing salvaged finds into furniture, large or small, is an excellent way to lend a functional, cool sensibility to the deconstructed pieces.
