This clever interpretation of foyer lighting gives that phrase a whole new meaning. No simple lantern light hanging from the ceiling here. Instead, visitors are treated to a wall of vintage cage lighting in a lovely array of shapes.

A trio of industrial cage lights hangs above this studio work table. What a pleasant environment in which to work.

Polished metal pendant lights hang above this kitchen work island. They’re oversized and hung low for maximum task lighting. Isn’t the subway-tiled alcove the perfect place for an industrial strength range?

In a more refined industrial style, these sleek metal pendants are a great choice above an eat-in kitchen table surrounded by see-through acrylic and metal chairs. Contemporary meets rustic.

What says modern pendant lighting better than unadorned bulbs in minimalist golden sockets hung by bare cords? In a variety of sizes and hung at different heights they’re a very cool addition to this contemporary kitchen.

A single industrial fixture lights this small sleeping space. The hanging light reminds me of those simple metal shop lights seen in garages, workshops and studios around the world. I think it’s a great look in this comfortable bedroom.

Large brushed metal pendants lined with what appears to be a white ceramic material hang in the center of this guesthouse in Australia. It’s a great look.

A Victorian brass desk lamp with an industrial vibe is a perfect addition to a rustic reclaimed wood desk. Metallic grass cloth on the wall behind the lamp looks amazing in the glow of this great light.
