The is also smart. Its compact design makes it ideal for small or shared spaces. It evokes quality and current trends in an unpolished shell and this allows it to stand out and to explore its functionality without also focusing on secondary features.
I’m hard-pressed to think of a piece of industrial décor furniture that could not be enhanced with the addition of casters. Used traditionally as purely functional tools to maximize working efficiency, casters are now added to a variety of industrial flavored pieces with not a functional purpose to be seen.
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.
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.
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.
