Wondering why we use the word “warehouse” to describe so

many of our lights?

 

While at first, hearing that we sell warehouse lights sounds as though we only sell our products to large commercial spaces or public utility places, we actually sell most of our lights to the everyday consumer. When we speak of warehouse lights , we are actually referring to a style of lighting rather than to lights that are only to be used in massive locations such as factories, warehouses, industrial zones, hospitals, shopping centers, colleges, universities, parking structures and  sports arenas. 

So just what is warehouse-styled lighting? In order to explain, we’re going to need to go back in time a century or two or three because the warehouse style can be traced back to the industrial revolution…

 
Industrial Revolution

Once upon a time, warehouse design was not so much of a style, but more of a way of life. Major technological advancement such as steam power, the railroad and gas lighting led to workers moving from the fields to factories and warehouse in droves. Green pastures became a thing of the past as brick and mortar became a thing of the present: walls ceaselessly sprung up and crowded cities only continued to become more and more populated as country people sought new life and work in the cities. The number of millhouses, warehouses and factories exploded. Back in this utilitarian age, warehouse and industrial design meant crafting items almost entirely for function over fashion.

 

Today we live a different story, however. Interior designers as of late have started to glean inspiration from those hard times. What was once gritty and functional has become a sought-after look for homes and commercial spaces due to the chic yet unpretentious interior style that has begun to resurface from that era. Consequently, industrial warehouse lighting received a reawakening as stripped architecture and restored-looking objects came into the view of interior designers, homeowners and business people.
