Industrial Living Room Design Ideas

Effortlessly cool. Easy going. Undeniably chic. These are all aspects of an industrial-style living room. Exposed brick, piping, concrete or natural wood floors are structural elements that make Industrial style what it is, but even if your home is anything but Industrial, don't despair; you can still bring this coveted cool look to your home with the right decor and furniture! An industrial living room design might have an edgy look about it, and appear more masculine in form and color. The color palettes used in Industrial interior design tends to be a bit darker. You may see muted colors, like greens and red, and mostly darker neutrals. This is simply because Industrial interior design stems from the look of old factories and urban buildings where the primary elements were in fact industrial materials. This is what inspires the style! So what might an industrial living room design consist of you ask? Do not let the inherent roughness of this style convince you that it can’t be comfortable. It absolutely can and is! Large and low sofas are commonly seen in an Industrial living room layout. A deep leather sofa in a more modern form can also be an excellent choice for this particular style. A coffee table made from raw wood, molded into a modern form can be a beautiful choice. You may also see concrete cast side tables and coffee tables as well. Industrial design is not typically seen in its pure form, as it’s a style that blends so beautifully with other styles. Due to its rugged nature, you’ll often see a mashup of rustic style design and industrial. When looking for industrial living room ideas you might see spaces that also appear more minimal and modern in style than the pure Industrial style. An Industrial living room isn’t complete though without some key elements, such as industrial lighting and statement furniture. The most popular lighting type that would be seen is lighting fixtures that are made from unrefined metal, wood, a combination of both and with external elements shown, like wiring and bare bulbs. Statement furniture simply means furniture that makes an impact; a conversation starter if you will. Industrial living room design wouldn’t be heavy on decor items, so having furniture and lighting be the decorative pieces is what makes this style so fun!  If you are looking for industrial living room ideas, we have them for many sizes and color palette preferences.
