    Arts & Culture, Communication Design

    Vintage antique industrial lighting are four words not usually found together, however with so many companies getting on the band wagon to go green, it comes as no surprise. Recycling light fixtures is very popular at the moment, adding unique features to any type of interior design. And these days one will see these old lights used in homes, lofts, businesses and even farmhouses.

    Mostly used at first to illuminate large work areas such as barns and warehouses. In the 1800s medical offices, steel mills and railroads used these large lights. Designed specifically around its function, these lights had to be able to endure rough weather and working conditions. Eventually the concept was moved into the dwellings as well.

    A stockist of this vastly different styled fixture offers genuinely refurbished antiques, resourced from obsolete factory sites all over America. The item is first cleaned and then wiring is repaired before it is ready to be sold, some even sell as is articles at a reduced price. But if authentic refurbished pieces are too expensive for a particular budget then perfect replicas are hand made at a much lower cost.

    Pendant styled fittings with a combination of Porcelain and galvanized strength mountings are snapped up by those looking for a contemporary design element. These are more commonly found as the way the fixture was fabricated made it tough enough to withstand time. A good accompaniment when used for larger loft type apartments and in rooms that have a large emergence of color.

    A simple search on the internet will introduce one to all available options. Awe inspiring in visual aspects will result in the purchase of any number of these lighting options. The final ambience of any design relies heavily on the lights used; a harmonious effect ensures overall success.

    Interior decorators no longer see big light fixtures as an irritation in a room. The ability of being able to choose from various arrays of size and color in these ranges makes any designer's job a lot easier. In a commercial setting the metal features present adds character to any working environment.

    Suspension from the ceiling is done using a twist cord, the advantage is that it is strong and durable but it is available in numerous colors. The metal cords can be ordered in a brilliant white, bottle green or raw galvanized finish. Styles included for resale are the trademarked Goodrich, Benjamin, Ivanhoe or Appleton fixtures.

    By purchasing recycled vintage antique industrial lighting and adding an Edison style light bulb, anyone can make a contribution towards saving the planet and lessening the carbon foot print. So for those homes still mainly using concealed lights why not look at updating a room by including one of these old timers. With burnished copper and vivid white porcelain, these once ancient history lights may be altered into a brilliant central focus point in a home or office.
