Industrial Revolution

It's quirky and unpolished, but undeniably chic. Popularized by city lofts, this look celebrates the beauty in everyday things. Industrial decor draws heavily on elements of casual and contemporary designs to create spaces that look lived in while keeping it clean and simple.

An urban loft has the benefit of big, cavernous spaces. In your own home, you can use a well-spaced floor plan to capture the essence of industrial design.

For upholstery, you have choices ranging from leather to linen. We're particularly fond of tufted cushions for the richness and character they lend.

Industrial furniture pieces tend to be rough around the edges. So whether it's a table or a dresser, all wood surfaces should be distressed looking.

Thanks to their practical nature, industrial rooms tend to be light on the accessories. Careful editing will help you capture this minimalistic look.
