Bare fixtures, cold steel, unfinished brickwork and a pared back colour palette are all signatures of the industrial style that has crept into our interiors. From Shoreditch basement flats to Manhattan skyline apartments, this urban style is now the must-have muse for your space wherever you live. The Industrial interior look is one that has been around for several seasons now, but for A/W 2015 we have seen a twist on this trend that injects a little glamour. Industrial Luxe is all about adding the finer details to an otherwise pared back style, bringing hints of luxury into the look creates a fresh take perfect for any home. Known for clean lines and exposed materials, you no longer need to live in a trendy converted warehouse to partake in this interior trend.
Lighting is a great place to start when looking to incorporate this style into your existing decor. To add the industrial luxe feel to your room lighting doesn’t have to just be about exposed filaments, look for simple yet stylish designs that steer away from bold design features. Cables and bulbs are often overlooked in traditional lighting, but with the influx of the industrial interior style many designs now make features of these integral parts to great effect. From colourful cords to funky bulbs, make sure you look for lighting that adds a subtle twist to the norm without being overbearing. The lighting range and the stunning collection of copper home accessories from Tom Dixon will provide the perfect accents to style your room with.
Keep the colour pallet muted, this will complement the raw materials and styling that are integral to the Industrial Luxe look. Monochrome will always be a safe choice, and the materials used throughout the room scheme will serve to add plenty of texture to contrast against the stark palette. Greys and neutrals will also work well if black and white is too stark for some. Those who need a boost of colour can add bright pops with statement furniture, from chairs to benches and even tables, these in themselves can become the focal point of a room. Wallpaper can bring varied shades and subtle pattern into this style, looks for grey shades and tiled patterns, NLXL have a great range of industrial designs to choose from. Add interest with art work and even a statement wall clock, bringing the attention to one or two key pieces on the wall, rather than the whole wall itself, will keep the look minimal and not over-cluttered.
Textures are really key to the Industrial Luxe trend, soft touches needs to be added into the scheme to soften up the harshness of exposed bricks or raw woods. Sleek reflective materials from glossy tiles to shiny decorative accessories will also help offset the rougher textures seen around the scheme. A great way to bring in softer textures is to look at rugs, from small and simple to larger statement pieces, a soft rug underfoot can offer to perfect finishing touch to your Industrial Luxe room, look through Brink & Campman’s wide range to find the perfect rug design for your space.
The Industrial Luxe trend is a great transitional interior style that will take you through seasons and can easily be updated to freshen your space. A perfect grown-up version of the student-like industrial style, it is ideal for those looking to marry modern style with a luxury edge to their home. Focus on lighting and textures with a neutral palette to get the core of this trend right and make it your own with decorative accessories and statement wall art to finish the look.
