Industrial-style lighting is most often made of metal. It has simple forms and the finish and color may differ, although usually it’s either the natural shade of the metal or something simple and neutral such as black or white. Although they can be elegant, these light fixtures tend to have a rough look and their designs focus mostly on functionality and simplicity.
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.
It isn’t too far of a stretch to say that the colors of “industry” are often natural, muted shades of browns and greys. Think of plaster and exposed brick, old galvanized pipes, copper plumbing, and worn leather. Of course, you can soften the edges and add some color in your space with plants, rugs with texture, modern art, or stand-out lighting.
