Porcelain Enamel Lighting Adapts to Many Design Styles
Whether you live in an industrial loft in New York City, a coastal bungalow in San Francisco, or a big, beautiful ranch house in the heart of Texas, porcelain enamel lighting can fit right into your design scheme. In this industrial style home, a former blanket factory in Milwaukee, the homeowner chose simple materials such as concrete floors and angular wooden furniture to create a clean, calm palette. He also chose to keep the building’s original yellow bricks which add a distinctive bit of character and history to the space.
We love the deep bowl pendant that is a focal point of the living area. This is much like our Ivanhoe® Wilcox Deep Bowl Porcelain Pendant, a cord hung pendant with plenty of industrial styling. You can choose a traditional finish color such as this homeowner did, or you can create a completely different look if your space leans towards another style. Porcelain lighting is very adaptable with many different shade styles, sizes, and colors to choose from. The Wilcox, for example, offers deep bowl styling in five different sizes. You can go with a standard black or white cord or dress up the fixture even more with a colored cotton twist cord.
If you prefer the look of a shallow bowl pendant, then the Benjamin® Sinclair Porcelain Stem Mount Light is a great choice. Its shallow bowl throws a wide span of light and works well over kitchen islands, countertops, or other work spaces. And thanks to the stem mount which protects the internal wiring, this fixture is rated for wet locations so you can have porcelain style and durability on the front porch too!
And for those tight spaces like hallways, bathrooms, and entryways, a porcelain wall sconce from our line of Wheeler™ Wall Sconces will fit the bill. The Seaside Radial Wave Reflector Wall Sconce is a fun and funky shade that will bring a smile to anyone’s face!
