What is industrial style?

The key components

Inspired by warehouses and open plan factories, industrial style combines hard-working materials (like metal, wood, and concrete) with neutral tones for an unfussy, functional look.

It's a popular look that's here to stay, and for good reason: the natural colour palette and sleek furniture means it works wonders in both traditional and modern homes.

Industrial furniture

It’s all about stripped-back materials: textured woods and striking metal frames. The shaping is minimalist and streamlined, with a few distinctive details like hairpin furniture legs.

Industrial lighting

Unique lighting is a stand-out feature of this trend and with just one statement piece you can inject urban appeal into any room. Their styling is simple, practical and plucked straight from the industrial revolution.

Reclaimed from another time

Look familiar? Our statement pieces look like they’ve had a previous life, including the Industrial tripod floor lamp which resembles lighting from old movie sets.

Look for filament bulbs

It's probably the easiest way into this trend. Edison-style bulbs look best if you're going for a vintage style - leave them exposed for the best effect.
