Brendan Ravenhill

This lighting, designed and created by Brendan Ravenhill, took my breath away. I would fill a house with his Bare Lights.

I’ve been drawn to industrial looking furniture since I can remember. I like to think my style and taste are ever-evolving, but the industrial-loving part of me seems to be here to stay. Do you have a particular interior style you’ve loved forever? Does it have a name?

P.S. — More industrial inspiration. Plus this too.

I love bare lighting (and all of these examples). We just started renovating a cereal factory from 1893 and we’re on the hunt for all things industrial to fill it… thanks!

I swoon over midcentury/danish modern…my favorite marriage of form and function.

I share your love for industrial-inspired pieces, especially when mixed in unexpected environments and with unrelated materials. Loving your posts lately!

I love the look of incandescent bare bulbs…but the greenie in me cringes at the thought!

Frank Lloyd Wright Mission or Prairie style. My “home base” for sure. To the point that I’m trying to design a couple quilts based on his windows to hang in my foyer. The foyer of my house that definitely sports a strong mission style feel.

you may like this designer as well: Ingo Maurer. I die everytime I see one of his creations: they’re so simple and inspiring! Saving my pennies to own one someday:

i love exposed light bulbs or lights that incorporate the bulb into the design.

Lighting is the one thing I really struggle to find perfect pieces of; normally decor-wise I’m too eclectic, cosy and non-minimalist for industrial, but I’m loving these! The rustic metal table lamp in one of the older posts you linked to is just fantastic.
