If you find yourself attracted to the unsightly, behind-the-scenes working aspects of interior design, you probably have a bit of industrial style preferences. An industrial space has a raw, utilitarian aesthetic that, rather than appear harsh and run-down, can exude sophistication and warmth. In this article, we’ll look at various pieces of industrial décor (you should know, of course, that the decorating possibilities of industrial décor are limitless) and why they work.
Almost any salvaged object constructed of, or including, metal in its design fits in with industrial style. Think used gears, pipes, vehicle parts, and machinery. Keep in mind the colder metals, though (such as aluminum, tin, steel, and iron), rather than warmer toned metals (e.g., gold, bronze, and brass). Grouping these industrial pieces together will create a greater impact. Repurposing salvaged finds into furniture, large or small, is an excellent way to lend a functional, cool sensibility to the deconstructed pieces.
Along with the use of metal on furniture or in the piping/ductwork of industrial interior designed spaces, industrial décor can also include adding metal onto doors and walls or as the defining element of a lighting fixture. This serves to increase the rough and tough sentiment.
plus an exposed brick wall is like an industrial décor match made in heaven.
While neutral tones are a key element within industrial interior design, grey is probably the heavy hitter when it comes to color palette backbones. As the natural color of concrete and many metals (think: steel, iron), grey looks both weathered and cool. It also is reminiscent of metallic, which makes it an ideal best-of-both-worlds kind of hue for industrial décor.
