Five tips for an industrial deco

With large surfaces without divisions, this style incorporates common areas connected to each other with lots of light and outstanding manufacturing appearance. Empty space, meanwhile, is a predominant element.


In essence, the furniture and elements that characterize the manufacturing aesthetic are recovered pieces, either from traditional or industrial trades. Carpenter tables, factory counters, office chairs, stools, drawers, files, lamps, typewriters and sewing machines or metal boxes.

  1. Light plays a fundamental role in this style. It is necessary that the house has large windows that allow important access of natural light.
  2. Old bags. They are an ideal complement to this type of decoration. Stacking them will turn amazing support tables into corners of your home.
  3. Lampshades with slender and flexible body. They adapt to this type of environment in a simple way and without stridence, as they reinforce the industrial of their construction. It is possible to place them in a reading area or on a bedside table.
  4. High ceilings. The air conditioning and heating conduction pipes are exposed to create an almost indispensable symbology, although not essential, to impregnate the clear, functional and eminently practical touch offered by this type of decoration.
  5. Ethnic elements. To further enhance the furniture and not fall into the coldness of iron, aluminum and stainless steel pieces, it is appropriate to combine them with objects, furniture or chests and textiles with a marked ethnic accent, such as sculptures, vases or carved wood pieces.
