Industrial style became popular in the late 2000’s and has remained on trend. It’s not restricted to elements which provide a ‘warehouse’ feel. It is much more than that, think urban New York Loft and Eames chairs, lots of metal and exposed elements showing the inner workings.
Industrial influenced furniture can be included in many areas of your home to achieve an updated look in any property from apartments, to classic character or more modern homes.
It is a versatile style that marries together visual appeal and functionality, while working well with other styles. Try matching an industrial element with a complete opposite; a plush throw or a lush indoor plant.
Industrial designed furniture tends to be extremely functional and user friendly. Many pieces include castor wheels which makes for easy movement and allows you to easily adapt it to different areas and purposes around your home. Large sectional items have the ability to help close off larger living spaces and divide up living areas. However, they are equally as practical in smaller areas with much of the range boasting fantastic storage solutions and include entertainment units, shelving units, coffee tables and buffets with cupboards and drawers to either display treasured keepsakes or to pop items out of sight with easy access.
Traditionally Industrial influenced furniture includes aged or distressed metal and timbers. This combination of warm woods mixed with forged framing offers an easy-care, rustic and edgy look. With its upcycled design it creates character and timeless design, perfect for your home !
