Trend: Industrial Vintage
Get the look: Industrial Vintage!
Inspired by the latest trends, this style mixes raw materials with soft fabrics.
Take cues from old, disused warehouses to create your industrial chic look by using a balanced mix of concrete and untreated wood, tarnished metal and supple fabrics.
Industrial Vintage takes inspiration from old, defunct factories and rustic surroundings. Furniture choices are sturdy and functional, with straight lines and simplistic design, ideally a little worn with either rust or peeling paint to give it the proper tarnished look. Typography in all its forms, like large metal letters, are used as art or spray-painted onto cabinets and storage solutions as practical labels. Personal details, such as framed letters and black and white photographs, paired with fresh flowers, give the otherwise austere style a softer, gentler edge. Concrete, wood and various metals, ideally in their crudest, unpolished form, dominate.
