More than just grey, black and silver interiors – industrial design is about working materials and functional shapes. Think metallics like copper, chrome and brass, distressed leather in earthy shades, and angular forms. Whatever room you’re styling, we’ve got industrial pieces for every budget.
If seating’s your focal point, get the tough luxe look with leather – from camel to cognac – or grey upholstery. Industrial 2.0 is all about masculine patterns too, from dog tooth to bold geometric prints. Complete the look with frames and legs in solid wood, chrome or brass.
For an industrial dining room, consider switching traditional dining chairs for dining benches and stools – they’re just as functional, and nod to the warehouses and factories that inspired the trend. And you’ll want an angular dining table mixing wood and metal, too.
Accessories are an easy, affordable way to add industrial style to any room. Metal’s key, whether it’s matte black or glossy copper. And make your pieces purposeful – like a doormat, clock or mirror: industrial design is about function as much as form.
The industrial trend started in lofts and larger spaces, where storage was free-standing and used to divide up open spaces. Follow suit and pick shelving and sideboards that mix metallic details with natural materials like mango wood. If your space is small, opt for taller pieces.
Think statement floor lamps and oversized pendants inspired by film studios – they’ll add a factory feel. For a more playful take on the look, pick pieces combining coloured metal and exposed bulbs.
Need inspiration? Going industrial doesn't have to mean living in a loft. Rhonda Drakeford shows us how.
