Whether a space has true vintage pieces or merely vintage-inspired ones, the effect is largely the same. It’s something of a hard-life-lived-but-still-going-strong mentality that is effusive in industrial décor. Old factory, laboratory, farm, and warehouse pieces (or replicas) are great vintage items that lend a solid industrial vibe.
True industrial décor will likely involve plenty of mixed material pieces featuring both raw wood and . This makes sense when one considers the transition into an industrial age, where wood lay the foundation and heavy metal objects came along to maximize efficiency and accuracy (and longevity) within the working processes. Metal brackets, tubes, and wires mix seamlessly and beautifully with worn, pocketed, or otherwise natural-appearing wood.
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.
