DESIGN SERIES: 1. The Industrial Look

July 5, 2017

The Industrial Look is no longer limited to lofts and refurbished warehouse apartments. Its popularity now spans not only residential design but also commercial and retail spaces. When it comes to industrial style, simplicity and functionality are the order of the day.

Think exposed beams, pipework and masonry; the combination of raw timber, stone and metal and high ceilings with large windows where natural light beams through to breathe warmth into those hard surfaces.



Typically, an industrial look is created with accents of darker neutral tones, from mid grey to charcoal to black. Open shelving, tracked lighting or bare globe pendants, large open plan spaces and vintage furniture all add to the appeal of this design.
