Reclaimed Industrial Lighting
Loomlight are a leading global supplier of reclaimed industrial, vintage and retro lighting. We work with both private and commercial clients.
Each light fixture has been reclaimed from an industrial, marine or military setting dating between 1920 and 1980. Light fixtures that have been built to exceptional standards, engineered for industrial use with unique, robust and characterful qualities. Lighting too good to be left in a salvage yard.
You can find everything from British military tripod search lights, vintage Italian ceiling pendants, Japanese cargo ship ceiling lights, German explosion proof wall lights, retro strip lights, wall mounted tube lighting, pipe lights, bulkhead wall lighting, vintage enamel light shades, or cantilever outdoor lighting. We also convert many of our fixtures to provide an option for vintage industrial LED lighting.
Our lighting is suitable for any eclectic or contemporary interior and outdoor space, including cool urban offices, rustic kitchens, living rooms, gardens or an outdoor porch. We supply and install lighting and accessories to hotels, restaurants, pubs, bars and other hospitality traders.
We supply LED lighting using retro Edison filament bulbs and we always finish each light fixture to a high standard with braided cable which compliments the vintage industrial style of these beautifully restored lamps.
Discover brands such as British Electric, VEB, Thorlux, Wiska, Daeyang, Crompton Lighting and many more, manufacturers of industrial grade fixtures and fittings.
Large quantities are available, please get in touch if there is something specific you are looking for.
Interior lighting is a fundamental element of any good interior design project especially if your room has a vaulted ceiling or very tall ceilings. Combining a good mix of functional and feature light fixtures is often the key to a winning lighting scheme. Here we provide some lighting solutions and ideas for vaulted ceilings or tall ceilings.
What is a vaulted ceiling?
Vaulted ceilings are architectural arched or pitched forms in your ceiling. Originally used in cathedral architecture, they offer the interior a sense of grandeur by providing large amounts of space and beautiful architectural lines.
A vaulted ceiling can be the most beautiful architectural feature in a large living space such as a kitchen, lounge or dining area. Often found in barn renovations with exposed beams to give the space a warm rustic style, they can bring large amounts of light and air into the space. With the additional space created by opening up a ceiling there is the opportunity to hang large feature lights such as this aluminium ceiling pendant by Baliga which is 46cm tall and 46cm wide.
Lighting for difficult spaces
But pitched roofs can also be a tricky customer to contend with where space is a limited. If your bedrooms or bathroom is in the eaves of a pitched roof, it can be tricky to design the space to include the furniture whilst ensuring there is enough headroom to move around. This is where smaller functional wall lighting might come in really handy. These reclaimed industrial Russian aluminium micro spot lights are great to mount on walls where space is tight and they are waterproof as well, so can be used in bathrooms or outdoors. They can be mounted next to each other on multiples or spread around the room as singles. Lovely small industrial style feature lights to use instead of a standard modern recessed spot light.
Inject Character with Large Feature Lighting
Love them or hate them, a vaulted ceiling or pitched roof is an opportunity to add some fantastic feature lighting to make the most of the lofty space and stamp your character on the space. With the extra space of a vaulted ceiling comes the challenge of illuminating it perfectly. Using a standard ceiling pendant typically used in a room with a 8-9 foot ceiling would look odd. The room would dwarf the pendant and make it look tiny in the space. This is a great opportunity to inject your personal style into the room by using large statement ceiling light fixtures whether it’s a rustic, industrial or contemporary style interior décor you want to achieve. If you want to add some authentic industrial character these large black industrial ceiling pendants by EOW fit the bill. At 65cm tall they are a fantastic size to fill a tall ceiling.
Hang in multiples
If you have the opportunity to hang multiple light fixtures in a row, this is a good way to spread the light throughout larger spaces. This reclaimed rustic conical ceiling pendant mimics the shape of a vaulted ceiling creating a lovely design aesthetic. This would work perfectly in a kitchen with high ceilings. Place over a kitchen island in a row of three for maximum rustic charm.
Include Industrial or Rustic Features
A vaulted ceiling is a lovely excuse to incorporate reclaimed beams or industrial style conduit and metal brackets to round out your look, too. If you love the authentic industrial look or rustic farmhouse appeal then a large cage light is a great feature light to create the character you're after. This aluminium cage ceiling pendant by Kukdong would make a statement as hallway lighting with tall ceilings.
Tips for Hanging Lights in Vaulted Ceilings
- Ensure you can reach your light fitting to be able to change the bulb.
- Use LED bulbs so you don’t have to change them so often
- Check the weight of the light fixture and ensure you have adequate support. If you are unsure always ask a professional.
- Check the size of the light fixture. Make sure it is not too small. Remember size matters!
Your goal is not only to provide adequate lighting but also to create visual interest, adding a layer of style into an otherwise empty space.
