Industrial design is having a moment right now.
One of the hottest trends in interior design, industrial inspired decor is one trend that looks like it’s here for the long haul.
Sometimes referred to as the “warehouse look,” industrial design started with the concept of showing off the beauty of the “guts” of homes, such as pipes and other “manmade” materials, that are traditionally concealed. Some consider industrial design to be a “cold” aesthetic, but that couldn’t be further from the truth! The dark metals and rich, reclaimed woods that are the core of industrial design lend themselves perfectly to rooms rich in warmth and character.
Like any other design, industrial can be incorporated in small accents or take over entire rooms. It’s all about how much you want to incorporate into your space.
If you’re worried about industrial design making your space a little sterile, add an item or two with a little character. This Ahoy Floor Lamp brings a unique and interesting touch to any room.
Industrial isn’t just for the living room. Feel free to add touches into any room of your home such as industrial-inspired Crosswoods Queen Bed with its cutouts made of hardwood solids and metal casters.
Have fun with it
Imagine what a great conversation piece this Farrell Bar Cart would be at your next get together. Pieces like this are a great way to shake up your design and add a little whimsy to your home.
Metal gears on a rustic wood background. You literally cannot get more on board with this design than with the Industrial Gears Wall Decor.
Looking for times with metal and a rustic or “reclaimed” style of wood is a great place to start. But for a piece to have a true industrial feel, find items with that little extra something. The Greenwich Collection features steel rivets and a crossed, almost scaffolding type feel.
