It’s poetic to think that from the raw, clanging factories of the past has come an enlivened, sophisticated world of decor. Industrial style features mechanical and functional elements. Exposed beams, brick, concrete bases, and cast iron are prominent. It’s not only a ruggedly charismatic style, it honors the history embodied in these spaces.

Think:

  • Exposed Edison bulbs
  • Metal bar stools
  • Crank tables
  • Worn leather
  • Stainless steel

What’s it all about?

Let’s begin with lighting. Original factories had pendant fixtures with porcelain enameled shades and cast aluminum bulb cages that cast a buzzy glow to work spaces. The look endures today as an on-trend addition to dining rooms, bar areas, bathrooms, and entryways. As you consider other aspects of industrial decor, specific choices are going to make it all work. Rustic wood dining tables, metal chairs, plants housed in vintage crates - these all support an industrial look with a relaxed, modern vibe.
