Whether used on floors, walls, furniture, , accessories, or wherever, concrete is as straightforward industrial as it comes. After all, very few warehouses or commercial sites would have had floors if it weren’t for concrete.
Another strategy for achieving the mixed wood-and-metal aesthetic is to group wood objects with metal ones, as was done in this industrial-style dining area. The effect, when they are paired together, is the same.
