Industrial style was born within the commercial market when old, bare warehouses and similar structures became new shops, offices, restaurants, even apartments. Rather than demolish the remaining essence of the warehouse, designers began to embrace the rawness and conscientiously construct a style around it. Industrial style is known for its utter lack of pretense, for its salvaged utilitarianism, and for its exposed architecture.
Almost any salvaged object constructed of, or including, metal in its design fits in with industrial style. Think used gears, pipes, vehicle parts, and machinery. Keep in mind the colder metals, though (such as aluminum, tin, steel, and iron), rather than warmer toned metals (e.g., gold, bronze, and brass). Grouping these industrial pieces together will create a greater impact. Repurposing salvaged finds into furniture, large or small, is an excellent way to lend a functional, cool sensibility to the deconstructed pieces.
Because the style itself began in the large, cavernous spaces inherent in warehouses and packing plants, replicating industrial style into your own home will require a similar feel. An open floor plan is the optimal layout for an industrial style foundation. You can achieve this feeling, even in small spaces, by editing the number of pieces in the space, keeping windows bare, and simplifying the space’s overall aesthetic.
