Industrial Style Lighting

One trend that I seem to be noticing lately, and completely loving, is industrial style lighting in every room, like industrial desk lamps used in a modern bedroom instead of the traditional table lamp by the bed. The idea of taking something traditionally meant for the office and putting it in the bedroom, or any living space, really is a bright one.

This take on design only proves the point that you don’t always have to follow the rules when it comes to design. In, fact it’s always good to break a few rules.

Using industrial style desk lamps in the bedroom creates a look that is interesting, playful and above all modern.  I love the idea of adding modern lamps to give contrast to soft and serene settings (as shown above).

But, don’t get caught up on the idea of only mixing these lamps in a simple white setting. This style also looks great in an already modern and moody room (above). And, keep in mind that the look doesn’t have to be limited to using the exact same lamp on either side of the bed. As long as you stay with similar lines and shapes then go ahead and mix up the color for some added fun.

These desk lamps are a great place to start:

So start breaking a few rules when it comes to lighting.
