Deep Bowl Pendants Make Their Residential Lighting Debut

We know you love industrial design, that’s why you’re on our blog, right? But what about the whole rustic concept? While seemingly different, these two styles can flawlessly join together to create the newly popular design combo known as industrial farmhouse. You see, true farmhouses are all about repurposing anything that could have some sort of useful purpose. From making a table out of shipping pallets, to creating a pendant light out of a mason jar, to achieve this design, you’ll have to think a little outside of the box.


Industrial-style seating surrounds a wooden table in the far distance. You’ll also notice that this piece is just about the only pop of color in the room – true industrial farmhouses typically have a whitewashed color palette, with splashes of natural woods thrown in. Spacious, dreamy and just plain irresistible are the best ways to describe this room.
