This coffee table showcases how casters, even in various sizes, can infuse a piece with industrial appeal but serve a questionable amount of genuine usefulness. (But really, who cares if it looks great?)
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.
Industrial décor relishes the fact that hard-working, functional pieces don’t have to be relegated to the inner guts of a place; instead, those components, exposed for all the world to see, ARE the style. This includes exposed pipes and ductwork as well as the hard-working “bones” of furniture.
Along with the use of metal on furniture or in the piping/ductwork of industrial interior designed spaces, industrial décor can also include adding metal onto doors and walls or as the defining element of a lighting fixture. This serves to increase the rough and tough sentiment.
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.
