Trend Alert: Craftsmanship Style

A key trend in the home design industry is craftsmanship. Whether its furniture, textiles or fixtures, furnishings with a handmade look using carefully constructed materials are high on the list in today’s most on-trend interiors.


Progress Lighting has answered the demand for crafted home elements with the introduction of several new lighting collections that further this style. Archives, Draper, Swing and Trestle fall under this category and (spoiler alert) don’t just look handcrafted, but actually are handcrafted – from metal work to glass to finish features. We invite you to take a closer look at the meticulous details of these families.

  • Archives | 

Pendants have the power to change a look of a room instantly. Today, they can be seen in bath and vanity areas, kitchens and foyers – and as singles or in groups of two or more. With Archives’ pendants and wall sconce, carefully crafted details and special accents achieve a vintage electric feel. All fixtures are available in two finish options: Antique Bronze with Satin Brass accents and Antique Nickel with Brushed Nickel accents.


Draper | 

With style, charm and intrigue, it’s all about achieving architectural interest with Draper. While polished detailing and tubular forms contribute to an authentic style, the candelabra socket accommodates a variety of decorative bulbs. Popular Antique Bronze and Polished Nickel options finish the pieces.

Swing | 

A fixture with mechanical nature – and unique authenticity – is what is pleasing about Swing. Five-light hoop fixture with natural brass accents and steel cables lends itself to a crafted, warehouse form. This fixture can also be mounted up or down. The six-light linear frame can revive the look over kitchen islands and bar areas, while adding to a vintage electric feel.
