Along with the prominence of weathered woods and marked metals in industrial design should be included . These include most fixtures antique, metallic, , lantern, and more. They add a historical, charmingly battered aesthetic to even the most contemporary of spaces.
Similar to the caged lighting tendencies of industrial décor lighting fixtures are any bulbous or metal-heavy lighting units that look like they belong in a warehouse…in the best, most complimentary of ways.
Another strategy for achieving the mixed wood-and-metal aesthetic is to group wood objects with metal ones, as was done in this industrial-style dining area. The effect, when they are paired together, is the same.
We really can’t discuss industrial décor without mentioning the material that, in and of itself, illustrates the essence of industrial style – concrete. Whether used on floors, walls, furniture, , accessories, or wherever, concrete is as straightforward industrial as it comes. After all, very few warehouses or commercial sites would have had floors if it weren’t for concrete.
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.
