Industrial style was born within the commercial market when old, bare warehouses and similar structures became new shops, offices, restaurants, even apartments. Rather than demolish the remaining essence of the warehouse, designers began to embrace the rawness and conscientiously construct a style around it. Industrial style is known for its utter lack of pretense, for its salvaged utilitarianism, and for its exposed architecture.
Furnishings that successfully inhabit an industrial styled space are pared down, fundamental, no-nonsense pieces. Clean lines and simple forms are a must. Of course, you may love the style but haven’t an inclination to perch solely atop hard metal stools for the rest of your life – that’s okay. Although industrial style embraces bare-bones, it doesn’t mean comfort is excluded altogether. Just keep padded, upholstered pieces simple, without excess frills or adornment.
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.
