Rustic Pool Table Lights
Rustic pool table lights often come from old and natural materials. The term “rustic” itself refers to old metal which has slightly rusted over, giving it a genuine and well-used look. Many homeowners love inviting rustic styles into their houses, which can look especially neat when adorning a classic game room.
Rustic lights are often made from metal or wooden troughs, industrial materials, or pieces of furniture. They are not required to be vintage in order to be considered rustic.
Contemporary Pool Table Lights
Before delving into the details of a contemporary pool table light, it’s important to highlight the difference between contemporary and modern. People tend to confuse the two because there are certain similarities that can compare the two styles. However, contemporary is a style all of its own, with many features that are independent from that of a modern look.
Contemporary defines anything that is current and trending, while modern takes its cue from the past. There is a definitive modern style that will never change, whereas contemporary fits the times and preferences of the moment. With this being said, contemporary pool table lights are often boxy, square-shaped, and with several minimalistic devices. They add a great touch of modernity and a city-like feel to your room when you install them.
