What is industrial style?

Content Image

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.

Look for filament bulbs

It's probably the easiest way into this trend. Edison-style bulbs not only fit the trend, but their understated glow gives off the perfect cosy ambience for winter.
