Lighting began for purely a utilitarian purpose — to provide light. However, as the technology expanded, it was only natural for people to want style in lighting. Hobrecht Lighting in Sacramento offers a wide variety of styles in lighting for you to choose from, which is one way to choose lighting for your bedroom, kitchen, or living room. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at just a few of our many lighting styles that you can choose from, and check out our lighting showroom today!


  • Modern style. Contemporary and modern design, while similar, are not the same. Modern design refers to a very specific time period between the early and the mid-twentieth century. Lighting during this time period was about very simple form and functionality. Geometric shapes were popular, and earth-tones were used to evoke a very simple feel. Hobrecht Lighting in Sacramento loves the modern style, and our modern lighting creates fabulous rooms. Contact us today to learn more!
  • Contemporary style. Contemporary design, however, refers to what is trending currently, which obviously changes. Inspired by modernism, minimalism, and Art Deco, this style has a few distinguishing characteristics, including very clean lines, neutral palettes, stark minimalism, and silhouettes. Materials used in the contemporary style include nickel, chrome, and steel, with even odd balls like hemp and jute showing up.
  • Craftsman style. The Craftsman style comes from the arts and crafts movement of the late 1800s to about 1920 that was a return to handmade, one-of-a-kind pieces that demonstrated the artistic ability of the craftsman. It was a push back against the opulence of the Victorian era that used ornateness over functionality. This often yielded poor quality furnishings that didn’t last very long with most being produced in a factory, which used unskilled labor. Instead, the Craftsman movement produced simple designs that were perfect and used natural materials and design aesthetics, which often resulted in heavy light fixtures. Hobrecht Lighting in Sacramento offers hundreds of Craftsman style lighting to suit your needs, all of which you can see on our website.
  • Mission style. Stemming from the arts and crafts movement of the late 19th century and early 20th century, the Mission style embraces the same tenets of functionality over looks and quality over quantity. That being said, many people still needed to be able to afford to purchase lighting fixtures and furniture, and handmade items are not cheap. Hence, the Mission style appeals to the middle class and features simple lines, with lighting being durable, elegant, and affordable. Expect natural materials and sleek lines for all Mission style furnishings.
