The industrial style has well-defined lines and characteristics which don’t always suit a comfortable and inviting home. However, some influences from this style can be sometimes a great addition to a décor. for example, you could have industrial-style pendant light in the kitchen. It’s an option that suits this space particularly well because of its functionality.
Taking the visible architecture and utilitarian components idea a step further, some industrial décor highlights the functional by contrasting them against a differently-toned surface. The effect is a sharp contrast and crisp industrial vibe.
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.
There are several ways to use the characteristic of exposed metal on your industrial décor furniture. The metal can be a variety of colors, types, shapes, and sheens, really. But whenever it’s exposed and part of the core of the piece, its steely and compact characteristics make a profound, hard-working statement.
The architecture of industrial style emphasizes a stripped-down infrastructure – the more exposed and raw, the better. Unfinished walls, aged brick, metal ductwork, bare windows, and exposed beams pay stylistic homage to the skeleton that supports the structure overall. Often, industrial-type floors (think concrete, wood, or other pragmatic, non-flashy surfaces) are kept bare.
