Pub lighting ideas

January 3, 2019

I can't think of a better use for salvaged industrial explosion proof and flameproof light fixtures than the pub interior. The build quality of these fixtures is second to none, down to the original design objective to withstand life in hazardous conditions.


Below is a collection of lighting ideas ideal for the pub - a range of reclaimed industrial and vintage marine lighting which exude bags of character and original detail, for creating an authentic interior design.  Reproductions can be found on the highstreet, however we really hope that people nowadays can see the benefits of buying reclaimed. Many more of a similar style can be found at Loomlight.


Table Lighting Ideas


(L)MS brass table lamp - £180

(C)  Steampunk industrial table lamp - £225

(R) Flameproof Copper Table Lamp - £425.00


Industrial Bar Lighting


Ceiling lights and pendants - not only provide illumination in a practical way but also create a feature.  Hanging a fixture in multiples over the bar helps create zones for ease of customer journey and also looks really eye catching.

Industrial Wall Lighting 


Wall lights are useful for areas harder to illuminate, or where you are unable to hang lighting from the ceiling.

Bespoke Requests


Being a small team we cater very well for bespoke requests large and small.  We recently had a request to paint 8 of our industrial strip lights "millennial pink", pictured below.  Whether you love it or hate's definitely a showstopper!   


Below is a photo of an explosion proof ceiling pendant converted into a cantilever wall light which can swing 180 degrees.  Perfect for lighting over tables, perhaps where ceiling lighting is not an option or where you want to create a cosy atmosphere with lower lighting.   


Industrial style light fixtures have seen a growth in popularity over the past few years, particularly in the hospitality industry.  The fixtures have been built for industrial and marine purposes so have outstanding design and build quality.  They carry many unique and original features which can't be found with new or high street lighting, which is what makes them so appealing.   Many of the light fixtures are either explosion proof, flameproof or IP rated

so can be used outdoors or in wet zones.


Loomlight has supplied reclaimed industrial and marine lighting for many commercial projects over the past few years - from pubs and restaurants to trendy office spaces.  


The Queen of Bradgate in Leicester has a quirky interior using a mix of chintzy tasseled light shades along side our industrial reclaimed lights.  It sounds a bit odd but it works brilliantly well.  The eclectic mix just works. Something which is getting more and more popular.

Below is the private bar - Queen of Bradgate, Leicester with the Engine Room Pendants - also available in most colours.

The Gents in The Queen of Bradgate - using our Russian Cast Aluminium Micro Spot Light which can be used as wall or ceiling lighting which also works well with copper conduit to hide the electrics.
