Industrial Revolution


Often the style for loft apartments reflecting the once-was look of an old warehouse or factory, industrial is a confident style where everything from the construction to the selected furniture and items are boldly on display. It works great in open plan spaces. It's enjoying a big come back. Think plenty of on-display storage and impactful light fittings!

Key traits

This is not just a look for unfinished spaces. sometimes the look is intentionally unfinished.

  • Wood and Metal Surfaces. Pair a wooden table with metal chairs.

  • Exposed pipes/ brickwork. Copper pipework is really trending!

  • Earth tones and neutrals

  • Vintage and restored furniture and accessories inspired by factories and labs. Think powder coated metal stools. 

  • Metro tiles

  • Exposed bulbs

  • Objects have utilitarian rather than decorative purpose 

This style is for

Those who like DIY, who like rough surfaces and being able to deconstruct things so that they can see how they operate.


If you don't like pompous interiors and waste but instead are drawn to salvage yards and don't mind buying second hand then this style is right up your street. Re-purpose and give a whole new lease of life to something precious.

What to expect

Clean, no-nonsense lines that are a bit masculine. You can tone the style down by mixing old and new. 

Add a touch of feminity with a bit of pink neon.
