Style Development & History

About Industrial Virtual Staging

When you think of industrial style interior design, you may first think of urban lofts that you’ll find in Soho or Bushwick. Typically, these lofts feature breezy high ceilings and open floor plans with lots of cool industrial elements.

The industrial interior design style dates back to the early twentieth century. At the final stages of the second industrial revolution, many Western European factories closed down, leaving lots of large, vacant buildings behind.

As a result of growing cities contributing to limited spaces, these old industrial areas were converted into residential neighborhoods.

This cool and gritty style is characterized by stripped back architectural details such as bare bricks, metals, concrete, timber, and wood. Wear and tear is what best describes industrial decor. Roughed-up furniture that feels lived-in, plus salvaged and recycled materials, is classic industrial.

As Kate Arends, the design professional behind the blog Wit & Delight puts it: “Industrial style design incorporates elements of historic commercial spaces into a living space. Think building materials like steel, wood, and iron. It doesn’t hide anything behind decorative finishes, colors, or facades.”

Further, it shares qualities with modern design and other contemporary trends, as well as more rustic spaces with vintage influences. You’ll generally find dark, worn furniture, and earthly tones in a home decorated in the industrial style.

And thanks to the red hue of the well-recognized bricks, it helps warm up the space without having to add cozy textiles. Overall, it provides a casual atmosphere that’s relaxing to live in.
