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.
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.
This characteristic of industrial décor can be applicable to a variety of design styles, but that doesn’t make it any less pertinent to an industrial space. Think: salvaged pieces, quirky content, and/or black and white photos to continue the space’s crisp, functional appeal.
