During a recent trip to Iowa, I stopped by Dwell Home Furnishings and Interior Design (located in Iowa City) to get my mind flowing with inspiration for both the house I’m currently flipping and future flips (Jay and I are looking at buying a house this summer and you know I’ll be renovating it a bit!) What I love about Dwell is the mix of rich colors presented in each space, the variety of patterns and textures showcased in the home furnishings and the ability to incorporate different trends in each part of the studio, leaving you basking in inspiration.
One trend I noticed that appeared repeatedly was industrial chic- specifically, industrial lighting. Here are a few examples of the lighting I saw: (images via Dwell’s Facebook)
What I love about this trend is it’s versatility- industrial lighting can be added to most designs and still compliment the overall look. For example, if you’re going for a rustic, country feel, the right statement light with industrial elements will compliment the design.
I can’t wait to add this trend to my future home- I think some gorgeous glass pendant lighting hung above a kitchen island would be perfect. Here are some examples of my favorite industrial lights:
Are you loving this industrial-chic trend? What is a trend you’re hoping to incorporate into your future home?
