Need help putting your love for rustic metals into your sweet new home? Recently, the desire to renovate and give life to old warehouses, barns, and industrial buildings has taken the design world by storm! From rustic exposed finishes and structural elements to industrial inspired lighting fixtures, there is no doubt that industrial details are here to stay.
It is best to start searching for your inspiration in architectural designs found in historical places. Venture out into old towns and find creativity in exposed brick buildings and steel columns. For many cities across the US, the restoration of warehouses, barns, and old manufacturer buildings turn into into swanky condos and office buildings!
More often than not, industrial inspired furnishings are sold within your local furniture retailers and many customers don’t realize it! Metals are prominent in plumbing and lighting fixtures as well as cabinet and doorknob hardware. Keep your eye out for brushed nickel, copper and cast iron metals to bring an industrial appeal to your home. STAGED suggests our Mirrored Nesting Tables, the Natural Wood Trestle Table and the Glade Lounge Chair.
The key to perfecting the Industrial Chic style involves mixing and matching modern details with rustic charm. The beauty of adding rustic elements into your home is the ability to mix and match your current styles with older inspired architectural details. Try to stay away from the rooms with the most appliances. This is because these rooms have the most modern pieces in them according to technology, it is best to focus on the older rooms in your home. Start with smaller projects like switching out your light fixtures to those with exposed light bulbs. Edison style bulbs execute the best look for this purpose.
The purpose if industrial furnishings is due to the appeal of bringing back a design age that focused on manufacturing and appreciation for raw and unfinished interiors. If you enjoy furnishings with a history behind them, the industrial style is just for you!
