Industrial is a style that finds beauty in aged, utilitarian design. It used to be that industrial wasn't even a style, but somewhere along the way, we began to appreciate it's visual appeal. There's a hard working quality about Industrial style because it celebrates humble materials, aged woods and worn textures mixed with metals; and it's exploded into a trend that shows no signs of slowing down.
One of our favorite looks here at American Home is the Industrial Chic look. We love the combinations of wood and steel in contemporary shapes, mixed with feminine elements, like a set of upholstered chairs or tufted sofa.
Today Industrial decor can look equally appealing in a million dollar mansion, a modern apartment, a downtown loft, or even your traditional home. Mix and match pieces to create an interior concept aiming at well balanced hipster modernity, garnished with vintage pieces and accessories.
Even if you're not 100% committed to Industrial Chic as a design style, you can still incorporate a bit of this look through just a few individual items. Plus, Industrial items never have to be used in the way they were intended, so any individual piece can have many uses! The beauty of Industrial chic is that it's timeless, neutral, simple and natural.
Tips for Decorating with Industrial Items:
- Group together a collection of Industrial Chic items for a larger, more dramatic impact.
- Pair Industrial with soft formal pieces to create a casual elegant look.
- Incorporate natural elements like plants and flowers to soften the Industrial look.
