Industrial Design

Anna Sotnik

Interior design is really about creating a quality of life, and a beauty in that life that nourishes the soul, that makes life beautiful. That’s what all this about, not just what’s in and what’s out.

When picturing industrial design, we typically think of lofts with big open windows and lots of exposed brick. When it comes to the furniture and accessories, the selection can be either modern, midcentury or even victorian or rustic. The idea of mixing “old” with “new” may explain why so many people have fallen in love with this style. Industrial style allows the freedom to embrace antique beauty while still enjoying modern convenience.
This design style allows each space to tell a special story that can never be duplicated.

4. This style relies on using a combination of neutral shades for walls and floor covering, to create a clean look. Natural colors of wood, steel and stone make the main color palette of the space. Bold and bright colors, such as yellow, red, orange and green can be found in the color pallette on the accessories, decoration and textile,

9. Tiles and concrete are the most common choices for flooring. No rugs or other floor coverings.


10. Plants also bring warmth to the industrial modern decor, large leaf plants in significant pots.


“When it comes to plants, the bigger the better is the formula to adopt for industrial interiors, otherwise they would be lost in the large space of a former industrial warehouse.” – sais Andreea in Impressive Interior Design.
