What is the Industrial Design Style

Developed during the early 20th-century wave of converting industrial spaces into residential homes, where brick walls,  pipes, steel beams, and unprocessed wood were left exposed to reveal a space’s structure.

Furniture is often minimalist and soft to off-set the room’s raw appearance, without layers of cladding and paint to achieve an edgier ambiance that is stylishly unexpected.

Taking style clues from old factories and industrial spaces, structural elements such as supporting beams and pillars become focal points around which everything gravitates to construct a cohesive space.

Typical Colours

The typical industrial colour palette is rich with the raw tones of brown, black, concrete, white, and a gradient of greys, contrasted by light-coloured fabrics and the greens of large and luscious plants.

Matching Materials

Straight, minimalistic lines characterize the rough environment, running along concrete surfaces, matured natural-wood floors, and expansive windows that blend with the structure’s exposed brick walls and steel beams.
