Welcome Back to the Industrial Age!

The days of working in factories and assembly lines are few and far between, yet today’s hottest trend is the urban, raw and edgy modern industrial aesthetic.  This style takes us back to the basics, with a simplistic design that is down to earth, cozy and warm. To achieve this chic-but-edgy look, seek out furnishings with clean lines and cool neutral tones. Find unique pieces with patina finish, deconstruction and up-cycled or recycled (think mid century). Lastly, have a balanced mix of different elements in your space – by incorporating metals, woods and concrete.
