Design trends – Industrial styling

This is a trend that has been evolving for a couple of years now and is seen in homes as well as offices, restaurants and even retail spaces. this trend is a backlash to mass production and the materials used all have a tactile aesthetic. The trend is also about using what is available instead of creating false facades and ceilings but instead leaving the exposed ducting and in many cases even the old brickwork. The thought behind leaving the existing is that it is far more eco conscious compared to replacing and re-doing. Key materials in this trend are concrete, face-brick and even stock bricks, brass, copper as well as all forms of tarnished and even rusted metal.

Many articles within this trend are either up-cycled or made from reclaimed materials such as old timber. Lighting also replicates that of industrial lighting that one would generally see in factories or warehouses. This trend is however becoming more and more refined and we are seeing this rough  and tactile finishes combined with painted surfaces and carpets which are more suitable for office spaces and loft living.
