Buying industrial lamp shades

Hard working, simplistic and unfinished. Industrial furniture is bold and confident but easy to merge into an existing style. Taking inspiration from the industrial spaces of the early 20th century, this style of design embraces the architectural elements of a room. Whether it’s exposed beams, unfinished brickwork or visible pipes. Industrial style doesn’t conceal these functional elements of a home but instead celebrates them.

Want to experiment with the industrial trend without commitment? Maybe you want to see if it suits your style without the expense or effort of installing a large piece? Or perhaps you just want one touch of industrial style to toughen up your existing look? If the answer to any of these questions is yes then an industrial lamp shade (or two) is the perfect place to start.

Lighting is key in industrial styling. Think the hanging fittings of a factory floor or warehouse space and the effect can be easily achieved with the simple addition of a shade. Choose pendant style shades in hard wearing enamel in neutral tones of grey, brown and cream for the area over a dining table or sitting area.

When it comes to the bedroom or living areas, tabletop and free standing lamps can also benefit from an industrial lamp shade makeover. Seek out super unusual pieces made from upcycled items like projectors and heat lamps for real talking points.

Styling your industrial lamp shade

If your industrial lamp shade has kick started a passion for the style then Vinterior has plenty of other pieces to inspire you.

If you’ve chosen an industrial shade to add style to your dining room or kitchen, a set of industrial dining chairs is the perfect accompaniment. Look for natural fabrics. Woven styles are super on trend right now. Pick versions with chrome foundations for a finish that’s 100% industrial.

Want something a little quirkier? Go back to your school days with a set of stacking cafetiere style chairs. Stylishly practical, they have both form and function.

Want something a little less high maintenance so you can play around with the positioning? Use your new industrial lamp shade to draw attention to a piece of industrial wall art. This practical decor style doesn’t exclude aesthetic choices, just make sure they are in keeping. Think stark monochrome prints, cult pop art moments and architectural depictions and you’re there.
