Trend Alert: Industrial Inspiration
Industrial chic has never been hotter, with more and more people trying to capture the raw appeal of this trend in their homes. Industrial interior design is inspired by the renovation and rejuvenation of old factories, warehouses and abandoned mills creating a loft style interior. However, it is not a trend solely limited to these types of properties and you don’t need to live in a loft conversion to add some industrial style to your home.
Despite the distinctive look of industrial pieces, they work really well with other interior styles and can easily elevate your interior. It’s about being proud of and showing off the parts of your home that most try to hide. The modern industrial design offers you an interesting opportunity to match contrasting designs to create your own personal style. Mix the raw with the refined, the sleek and modern with the vintage and classic for an edgy and utilitarian look.
Industrial chic is warm, urban and on-trend right now, but it’s also good for the planet and very environmentally-friendly.
What’s intriguing about industrial chic furniture is that no two pieces will ever be the same, and each carries with it its own unique character and history. Take this incredible Baumhaus Urban Chic computer desk with its reclaimed wood surface, fusing the old and new to make a striking piece of office furniture.
Continue the industrial interior design theme with a small Baumhaus Urban Chic bookcase or take it one step up and display your book collection on this larger open shelved bookcase. The mix of wood and metal makes this a classic example of well-designed industrial furniture, perfect for a home office.
Industrial chic also works incredibly well in your living room, giving it a wonderful warmth which makes it the ideal place for entertaining. Buy a statement piece such as this Spectrum rug to create a great focal point for the room. The geometric pattern and sharp lines are incredibly eye-catching, but it's also beautifully soft underfoot.
Industrial chic is a trend which works throughout the house, particularly in rooms where you spend time with friends and family. To really complete the look, exposed brickwork or wood floors look incredible and help give any room that industrial chic feel.
