Industrial Chic

Raw materials, minimalist style and rugged appeal. Industrial Chic is not only an old favourite with the Design Olive, but it is very in vogue. Simple shapes, clean lines and natural textures all contribute to this signature look. Think copper, concrete, exposed brick, leather and steel.

To inject some industrial luxe into the home, try pairing a woven throw with a supple leather sofa. Introduce metallics with a pendant lampshade and a statement clock, or add unique character with reclaimed wood – I particularly love these tables created from wood saved from Hastings pier.

Remember, keep the look simple, minimal works best. However, do add your own finishing touches, perhaps a vintage desk fan, a bar stool or two or a standard lamp.
