If you are looking for information on how to purchase your industrial ceiling lamp, you have come to the right place. In general, industrial lighting is appreciated by those who love the simple and robust designs of factories and other industrial spaces of yesteryear. Made from strong and durable materials, these fixtures can be integrated into modern interior decorations, as well as country or marine environments.
Originally, industrial luminaires had only one vocation: to be functional. If today they are integrated into our interior lighting systems, they were certainly not intended to be eye-catching or even intentionally durable.
Traditionally, the industrial style in lighting leaves a lot of room for steel, but also for wood with dark shades. It is also recognizable by this impression of unfinished or reused. Add to this the often exposed or caged bulbs, metal elements, visible and screwed connection points without embellishments, as were the machines of the time.
The industrial ceiling light is characterized by its rounded or hat-shaped lampshade. It also displays matte or patinated colors or finishes. While the term "industrial" may raise some questions, this style generally fits many interior styles, from the chic country look, to the purely industrial style, to the Nordic interior design, where it will interrupt the general atmosphere in a nice way.
If you hesitate between, for example, a beautiful wood industrial ceiling light and a suspension lamp, here is why the first light can be a relevant choice:
- The industrial ceiling fixture is fixed to the ceiling, which is space-saving, for example, compared to a floor lamp ..;
- The largest model can measure up to 40 cm in height against 20 cm for non-industrial models ;
- You will not see any suspended wire coming out of your ceiling, this type of ceiling light was fixed directly to the ceiling ;
- If you or the members of your household are tall, don't be careful not to hit your head with your light source!
- As for the industrial spotlight, it is embedded in the ceiling;
- It requires that you drill a hole in which you will integrate the body of the spotlight.
Each room must have a minimum of three light sources:
- A main ceiling light to illuminate the whole room ;
- Task lighting, which will focus on the work areas ;
- Atmospheric lighting, for example, to create a pleasant atmosphere.

- Without a lampshade, it can light over a large radius.
