History dictates that a vintage warehouse pendant comes in one color and that color is always black. But we’re breaking tradition with the finish on this vintage warehouse pendant. Back in the early part of the 19th century, factories and warehouses were filled with pendant lighting. Some pendants were small and others very large and they provided the light necessary for factory workers to complete their jobs. In general, warehouses were not constructed to have a lot of windows that would provide a natural light source. The walls were needed for shelving to stack and store products, parts and consumer goods. So light fixtures became integral to the successful operation of a warehouse or factory. The vintage warehouse pendant filled this role well because it’s domed shape would disperse light to a large area. The bigger the dome the more light that was dispersed onto the factory floor. And it’s the same with this vintage warehouse pendant.
