Urban Industrial style is minimal and uncluttered with a preference for raw and exposed architectural features and furniture.
A common feature of this style is the use of iron framed, oversized windows and doors, enabling abundant natural light to soften the space, whilst maintaining an edgy, masculine feel.
This look involves layering contrasting textures and materials such as leather chairs, exposed bricks, concrete floors and recycled timbers, comforted with soft furnishings of luxurious wool, washed linens and faux fur.
Lighting choices for this style cater to the lofty height of the ceilings and include industrial style pendants of metal, enamel and glass. Repurposed elements are used to create interesting desk, floor and wall lamps.
Urban Industrial style interiors are fundamentally functional and stylish with a utilitarian feel.
