INDUSTRIAL FURNITURE BRANDS
Give your home a raw edge with industrial-style pieces that convey urban-chic.
Industrial Furniture Brands
Utilitarian, raw and edgy: these are some of the words that are most commonly used to describe the industrial look – a style that is all about displaying the unrefined in its full glory. Not unlike the interior style they are associated with, industrial furnishings tend to be no-frills but that doesn’t mean they won’t look good in your home.
Basic pieces, such as a reclaimed wood top dining table or a bookshelf with a cast iron frame, may look simple in comparison to luxurious leather furnishings, but they are certainly useful for adding a weathered and undeniably unique character to most houses.
Plus, if you like being eco-friendly, industrial furniture brands like d-Bodhi and United Strangers will strike the right note with you. Made using old boat wood, recycled iron and even army tents, their furniture offerings certainly score points in both the eco and style departments.
Not sure about bringing industrial furniture into your home? Here’s are some useful decor tips that will apply to most industrial-style interiors:
Focus on colours: If you are keen on going on full-on industrial for your home’s look, chances are that you will have an exposed brick wall or cement screed floor planned. Pair these features with industrial furnishings that feature a natural shade of brown or grey for a cohesive look.
Mess with metal: Dare to bring in metallic accessories and/or features into your home as they pair well with exposed pipes and galvanised metals, which are commonly used in the construction of industrial-style furniture.
Play with texture: Industrial-style furniture pieces tend to make use of rough, unpolished natural materials, and that also means they tend towards the harder side of things. So feel free to soften the look of your home with soft textile accessories like a fabric throw or woollen rug.
