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.
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.
Furnishings that successfully inhabit an industrial styled space are pared down, fundamental, no-nonsense pieces. Clean lines and simple forms are a must. Of course, you may love the style but haven’t an inclination to perch solely atop hard metal stools for the rest of your life – that’s okay. Although industrial style embraces bare-bones, it doesn’t mean comfort is excluded altogether. Just keep padded, upholstered pieces simple, without excess frills or adornment.
Elements such as metal accents oxidized by time, big shelves and are resurfaced here in a design with urban appeal and with an overall look that’s rough but elegant. The LOFT kitchen only includes the essentials and this makes it really practical and space-efficient.
