As with all trends, popular styles come and go. Some of the more classic designs are always in fashion, but with newer generations coming into homeownership, a fresh approach is being taken to many designs. A great example of a trend that is coming into vogue is the industrial style. It’s making its way back into the design essence of many spaces, but in the most unexpected of ways.
When one thinks of industrial design, oftentimes images of exposed ceilings and ductwork along with both warm and cold spaces come to mind. Concrete is almost sure to be brought up as a core design element, especially when speaking of countertops and floors. However, newer generations are not necessarily looking to have industrial-style design be the core defining trait of their space, but rather an influence on it.
As seen in the photo above, earth tones have been popular for years now, but incorporating subtle elements from industrial design, such as the large steel pendant lights, black hardware, and bar chairs with iron legs can take some of the best that this design genre has to offer without compromising the relaxing nature of lighter-toned design—creating an incredible fusion that has its own unique personality.
