Design Style History: Industrial

Industrial interior design traces its roots to the late 19th and early 20th centuries, when former industrial spaces like factories and warehouses were repurposed into living or commercial spaces. Originating from the Industrial Revolution, this design style celebrates raw, utilitarian aesthetics and embraces elements like exposed brick walls, metal beams, and concrete floors. Influenced by the ethos of functionality and efficiency, industrial design emphasizes simplicity and practicality, often incorporating salvaged materials and vintage industrial fixtures. The aesthetic gained popularity in the mid-20th century as urbanization led to the conversion of old industrial buildings into trendy lofts and studios, particularly in cities like New York and London. Today, industrial interior design remains a popular choice for urban dwellers and commercial spaces seeking a contemporary, edgy vibe, characterized by its fusion of rugged textures, minimalist furnishings, and an appreciation for the beauty of industrial heritage.

Its weathered texture and worn patina add character and warmth to industrial-inspired interiors, while its durability ensures longevity, making it a functional and stylish choice for furniture and accent pieces in such spaces.

Edison Bulbs

Edison bulbs are vintage-style light bulbs with exposed filaments, reminiscent of early 20th-century industrial lighting. They add a nostalgic charm and ambient glow to industrial interiors, enhancing the rugged yet cozy ambiance with their retro allure.


Iron is a versatile metal used in industrial interiors for hardware, lighting fixtures, and furniture. Its rugged appearance and dark patina contribute to the industrial aesthetic, adding a sense of authenticity and rugged elegance to the space.


Concrete is a defining feature of industrial interiors, prized for its raw, minimalist look and industrial charm. It's used for flooring, walls, and countertops, providing a sturdy and modern backdrop with its smooth or textured surface finishes.
