The growing trend of industrial style lighting

The industrial interior decoration style has been super hot the last few years, and it seems that the style is here to stay for a least a while longer.

What started out being a trendy way of getting the right atmosphere in cool steakhouses and restaurants now seem to have spread to people's personal spaces.
It has become extremely popular to decorate kitchens this way. Materials used are concrete, roughly cut wooden surfaces, metal such as steel, brass and copper, as well as glass.

But what really makes that industrial style pop is the choice of lighting. It really complements the cold materials of concrete and glass to opt for metal lamps, and one style of industrial lamp that is ideal for this interior choice is the naked light bulb in a metal cage.

 However, if you don't want to go quite that minimalistic there are of course other options.
This shy metal hare in a golden tint is a fun and quirky alternative that is still in line with the industrial style due to its materials.

 Or how about this very creative vintage phone that doubles up as a lamp with naked bulbs?
With a bit of imagination and finesse you can turn almost any home decor piece into a stylish lamp. 

 You may not know this, but a naked bulb doesn't have to be boring. With the trend of the industrial style being so big, you'll find that there are lots of styles to choose from when it comes to light bulbs. They come in different shapes and sizes, as well as with a choice of patterns inside.

 If a naked bulb is a bit overkill for you and you don't want to go over the top but still want to achieve an industrial style interior decor, you can always opt for lampshades of certain styles. Go for cold materials like metal - the options there are wider than you may think. Go for shiny or matte, copper or steel, grey or dusky colours... the choices are almost endless!

I, for one, love the naked light bulb in a metal cage, and I've found the ideal ones over at First Choice Lighting. The style of industrial lamps is a great one to experiment with, so mix and match according to what you like. The art of lighting might be more difficult than you think, but the most important thing to remember is to opt for multiple light sources rather than one bright light. This is in order to be able to achieve different kinds of atmospheres, depending on what mood you want to create at that particular instant.
