In the past, “decorating” involved hiding away those parts of a space that reminded inhabitants that the space was actually constructed of something, and that different building materials were necessary in order to make the space function, such as the wiring for wall sconces or ceiling light fixtures. Industrial décor goes against that by adding (or allowing to exist) a raw, unfinished aesthetic. In fact, many design enthusiasts now specifically seek out this ‘unfinished’ look.
Salvaged objects are those objects who are either revived to serve their original purpose or reused in another way to serve a different, yet still functional, purpose. It should come as no surprise that industrial décor features the aesthetic of utility, whether authentic or contrived. A red iron wheel centered on your dining table’s base? Absolutely chic, unassuming, and comfortable.
With so much emphasis on raw, natural pieces in industrial style, it makes sense that oil landscapes in rich tones and softened sculptures would seem out of place. Artwork and all accents (which, in a pared down space that embraces the industrial, will seem like art) should be kept edgy and current…even if the medium or content is not. Abstracts, sculptures of multiple media, even old traffic signs will feel right at home. Or, if unsure, black and white photos in simple, contemporary frames and simple, wide mats will win every time.
