Industrial Interior Design has become an extremely popular interior design style for its ability to make an interior look uniquely raw and simplistic. The use of materials such as exposed bricks, grunge textures, utilitarian objects and wood or metal surfaces gives a “warehouse” or “unfinished” look. Even though it may seem like an unorthodox design choice, many design enthusiasts have been incorporating industrial elements in their interior to add contrast. Vintage furniture in the form of wooden chairs, metal cabinets are also a welcome addition to complement the industrial aesthetic.
Many people are leaning towards this aesthetic because it does not force them to overthink, to embrace the rawness and roughness of the materials used as they are. The juxtaposition of modern versus timeworn makes for a great, layered and considered statement.
