Industrial Inspiration Design Tips
Industrial design is a hot trend right now, with many people wanting to get a slightly edgier look in their homes. There’s a fine balance to be struck if you want to get an industrial look in your home. Done well it can transform your home into a very sleek and contemporary place but you can run the risk of it looking cold and clinical.
Industrial chic has proven incredibly popular in 2018, largely because it has one eye on the past and another on the future. It’s part celebration of the country’s industrial history but also has a very modern, even futuristic look which never goes out of fashion.
Industrial chic is about using reclaimed materials, which gives each bespoke piece of furniture extra character and history. In the living room, you could try complementing the Baumhaus Urban Chic Alcove Bookcase with the stunning Baumhaus coffee table, both of which are crafted from reclaimed wood and are hand-finished.
For a really modern look, we love the simplicity and starkness of this Pacific Lifestyle tripod floor light, which could really bring the ‘wow’ factor to your living space.
Make sure you add plenty of accessories to soften the look a little - or a lot depending on your style.
You might want to bring a little shabby chic to your kitchen by hanging this fan design clock on a feature wall,.
Or try adding in some soft furnishing, such as sumptuous cushions and throws or a shaggy rug, such as the Arctic Ivory rug from Plantation Rug Company.
If you want to achieve the industrial chic style without it looking hard and cold, you need to choose the most well-designed and well-made pieces of furniture. You need these items to be practical and useful as well as appealing to the eye. The trick is to not go overboard but to limit yourself to just a handful of statement pieces which have been beautifully crafted, for the ultimate look.
