It’s hard to say why the warm industrial style has hit the zeitgeist the past few years. Perhaps it’s because we’ve become so far removed from day-to-day industry. Or maybe it’s because it’s a natural extension of the green/upcycling movement. Whatever the cause, this decor style is sure to remain popular.
From the original converted old factories and warehouses that caught the eye of artists and designers looking for cheaper rents, to today’s sleek contemporary lofts, industrial style has caught on and stuck. It’s more popular than ever and shows no signs of going anywhere — and of course, with popularity comes a higher price tag. But you don’t have to spend a fortune to get the look.
With a bit of ingenuity and persistence, you can pull together authentic finds, DIY projects and budget pieces to give your pad cool industrial style.
