Be Inspired – Modern Industrial Style

May 22, 2022

In this issue of Ferrari Living we shine the spotlight on the chic, modern industrial design trend that has become hugely popular in recent years. This style is based on the cool warehouse/ loft vibe and looks fantastic in all sorts of interiors, from family homes and apartments to edgy commercial spaces.To start, let’s examine the colour palette which is inspired by the materials of industry such as concrete and steel. Walls look fantastic in shades of grey, and you can also bring in splashes of black and warm neutrals. To keep the look sleek select textiles in plain block colours, meaning no fancy patterns on throw rugs or glitzy cushions.Industrial furniture is classified as any functional object that has a specific use in a professional context, such as a workshop bench. Raw, solid and built to last, functionality takes precedence over beauty when it comes to industrial furniture. These no frills objects transcend the boundaries of fashion and create a stylish, edgy look in a home or office. They are also a fantastic conversation starter, as there is a unique story behind each piece.The element that most symbolises industrial furniture is metal, which was coming into its own at the end of the 19th Century. Don’t be afraid to mix together a variety of metals - combine matt finishes with bright shiny surfaces, and older metals that have a tarnished patina coating. For best results incorporate raw wood and glass into the space. Mesh, wire and chain fit perfectly too.Due to the popularity of this design trend, original industrial furniture is becoming harder to find. Here at Ferrari Interiors we work with specialist antique dealers and are able to source a piece just right for you. We can also help you adapt an industrial piece of furniture to give it a new function within your office or home, such as an industrial light which also doubles as a saucepan rack in a kitchen.If you like this style but cannot afford an original piece, Ferrari Interiors is also able to source a quality reproduction for you, from heavy duty industrial floor lamps to metal topped dining tables. Take a look at our Fab Finds section for further inspiration.[gallery link="file" exclude="1305,1331,1329,1327,1326,1325,1324,1323,1322,1321"]
