Wood pieces reflect a design’s ability to scale things back to the basics. The high profile use of the humble material that is wood comes to the forefront in industrial décor, where it seems that the more worn, battered, and/or mismatched the wood, the more celebrated the piece. The effect is an earthy, organic look…that, when paired with other elements of industrial décor (such as metal), becomes modern as well.
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.
In the past, “decorating” involved hiding away those parts of a space that reminded inhabitants that the space was actually constructed of something, and that different building materials were necessary in order to make the space function, such as the wiring for wall sconces or ceiling light fixtures. Industrial décor goes against that by adding (or allowing to exist) a raw, unfinished aesthetic. In fact, many design enthusiasts now specifically seek out this ‘unfinished’ look.
