Industrial style, initiated in the United States in the 1950s, is now perceived as a luxury and having good taste, once a necessity to adapt to new living conditions. The empty post-factory halls quickly became apartments, studios and exhibition halls for many artists. The most characteristic of the decor of such places is a raw finish and minimalism.
The appearance of industrial furniture
stands out from other, more traditional arrangements. A simple form, devoid of fancy decorations, makes the furniture look very original and extremely functional. Industrial furniture has a large group of supporters who want to make their interiors one of a kind. Unusual, industrial furniture with a simple or geometrically shaped form will certainly attract the attention of our guests.
The main features of industrial furniture are the severity of workmanship and minimalism, which delight interior designers and people who appreciate simplicity combined with elegance. The variety of industrial furniture allows you to integrate it into any interior, this furniture is the perfect choice when arranging spacious and modern interiors, as well as traditionally furnished apartments. Sometimes it is enough to make only minor changes, adding an extraordinary decoration to the interior arrangement, to make our rooms unique.
The structure of industrial furniture is made of metal, the elements are solidly welded, often sanded, which makes them easier to fit into the interior design. The elements are subjected to the process of powder coating, which is very effective because the painted surface has a smooth surface, and is resistant to mechanical damage, moisture or corrosion. In the case of traditional painting, reaching hard-to-reach places is often impossible, while in powder coating it is not the slightest problem. Powder paints are resistant to weather conditions such as low temperatures, rain and solar radiation. Thanks to this method, our furniture is protected for many years. The visual effect of the powder coating process can be metallic, glossy or matte, while the variety of mixed paints allows for choosing a colour that will satisfy each customer.
What is industrial furniture made of?
Industrial furniture is a combination of metal and wood. Solid metal furniture bases, which are welded, guarantee stability, such a uniform element does not require furniture assembly, which in turn translates into its durability. The basis of industrial furniture requires a combination of the highest quality wood, which looks great on dining tables, coffee tables in the living room, shelves or desks. Solid wood tops are covered with UV-hardened oils, which prevent water and dirt from penetrating the wood.
Examples of industrial furniture allow you to choose the right equipment for your rooms. Interior designers will prepare a design and visualization that will help in selecting furniture. Experienced specialists will certainly realize the client’s vision. In the living room, let’s focus on elegance and modernity combined with functionalism. It is very important to create an atmosphere in the living room that is conducive to relaxation, this is where we spend our free time with family and friends. If we have a living room with a dining room, let’s make sure that the table in the dining room matches the style of the furniture in the living room. A large and stable table in an industrial style will certainly fulfil its function and provide comfort during family dinners and long evening meetings with friends.
When arranging our interiors, let’s not forget about the unique industrial-style accessories that will give our rooms character and emphasize our unconventional personality. Wall decorations take up little space and at the same time emphasize the minimalism of the decor. A wall clock or a picture in a metal frame will give our arrangement an industrial character. If we have a smaller area of rooms, the perfect solution that always works is to hang mirrors that optically enlarge our interior. A small, simple metal console in the hall combined with a metal coat hanger may turn out to be a great addition to the decor of our apartment. When arranging the interior, many possibilities allow you to show an original idea and create rooms that will be one of a kind.
