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.
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.
Salvaged objects are those objects who are either revived to serve their original purpose or reused in another way to serve a different, yet still functional, purpose. It should come as no surprise that industrial décor features the aesthetic of utility, whether authentic or contrived. A red iron wheel centered on your dining table’s base? Absolutely chic, unassuming, and comfortable.
Industrial décor relishes the fact that hard-working, functional pieces don’t have to be relegated to the inner guts of a place; instead, those components, exposed for all the world to see, ARE the style. This includes exposed pipes and ductwork as well as the hard-working “bones” of furniture.
A bare-bones square metal base rockets this gorgeous chair into a world of industrialism…and class.
