Proper lighting is one necessity in every room in the house. Even your brightly lit spaces need lights to flip on once the sun goes down. When it comes to lighting choices, we love stylish floor lamps! They are great if you need to save surface space in your living room, bedroom or other areas of the house. Whether you opt for a tripod floor lamp, a floor lamp that arcs over the room, a small reading floor lamp or a big statement piece, your lighting is an element that can instantly upgrade the look and feel of any room design. Layered lighting like desk lamps and floor lamps are essential in a small space—but they also work well in any size home.

Floor lamps are a big hit right now because we are spending so much time at home these days and need our spaces well-lit morning, noon, and night! If you need help coming up with floor lamp ideas for your home, check out some of our stylist’s favorite picks!

The Industrial Lighting Trend Your Rooms Need for 2020

industrial lamp

Like to be on the cutting edge of design trends? Then you’ll want to keep reading. Because we see a major lighting trend on the horizon! You may have spotted them on Pinterest and Instagram: sleek, minimal, and sculptural industrial light fixtures. They’re everywhere, and we’re loving them. Usually made of matte black metal – or occasionally a brushed steel or brass – these pieces show off sculptural, minimal designs with no frills or ornamentation.

We’re predicting this trend will carry us through 2019 and well into 2020. So, you may want to jump on board! Because, while good lighting may seem like a small detail, it can make or break a room! Not sure how to chase down this style? We’re shedding some light (we had to) on this trend and giving you some bright ideas on how to make it your own!

industrial lightingMix and Match Styles

One of the reasons we love the industrial lighting trend is that you rarely see these pieces in purely industrial design. More often than not, these fixtures are the crowning jewels in minimal, modern, and even rustic spaces. They easily fit into multiple design styles, and can even help blend different styles together, like Rustic Minimalism.

We love how these pieces offer a note of edgy, minimal contrast that can be a lovely counterbalance to large, plush furniture or rooms with a more feminine design aesthetic. This lighting style is all about grounding a room and helps keeps it from becoming too much of one thing.

industrial lightingPlay With Proportion

The industrial lighting trend is all about the push and pulls between minimalism and boldness. While the fixtures themselves are minimal and sleek, you can amp up the scale to make a bold statement.

Take this oversized floor lamp, for example. It has a simple and streamlined design – but its large scale adds serious drama. Arching designs like this are also a great way to add a sense of overhead lighting if your room doesn’t have a built-in ceiling fixture.

industrial lightingGo Sculptural and Geometric

While industrial lamps and light fixtures are minimal in design, many are also incredibly sculptural. With that, they add a lot more than just light to the room – almost serving as works of art within your space. The floor lamp in this room features an interesting angular design that’s perfect for adding bold style and flooding a larger room with plenty of light!

industrial lightingScore with Sconces

You’ve probably noticed that many fixtures in the industrial lighting trend are wall-mounted sconces. These pieces are both beautiful and practical; they add sculptural style to a room but are also able to swivel, extend, and pivot, so you can shed light exactly where you need it. They’re perfect in a bedroom if you want to free up the surface area on your nightstand – all the more room for books, flowers, drinks, or midnight snacks! They’re also great above your sofa, in a dining room, or nestled in a reading nook.
