One of the biggest complaints with these uber-elegant industrial lights is that they bring back outdated bulbs that are not planet-friendly and turn up your power bills. A safe compromise is to replace the filament bulb with modern LED variants that offer the same visual effect at 80 percent more energy-efficiency. These simple industrial lights also are smart space-savers that work brilliantly in small bedrooms, bathrooms and dining spaces.

It was Nate Berkus who said “I hate sets. I’ve always hated sets. I think that if you have a dining room set, break it up!” Hate might be a touch too strong a word, but often dining room sets do indeed breed monotony and boredom. Industrial-style lighting is a good way to move away from the conventional and give your contemporary dining room that X-factor which has always been missing. Chic industrial pendants that combine contemporary finishes with industrial materials are a great compromise as they act as a bridge between the two contrasting styles.
