Industrial Style Decor

Industrial style decor for an overall design style may not strike you as a riveting concept however, it is one to work with.  Balance plays a pivotal role in the completed look of any space, and the impact of the primary design style is often enhanced by a supporting decorating style that complements as it promotes balance in the space.  The concept of industrial style decor gleans influence from the modern warehouse-loft-factory elements of design.  With rustic origins relating to vintage wares, industrial style typifies a commercial appeal through the incorporation of wood and metal into the design and decor.

Pulling home decor accents and accessories from other design styles avoids or at least greatly diminishes the risk of the space becoming locked into the hard line look of a particular decorating style.  A mid century modern or French dining chair becomes a companion piece that heightens the primary style and styles the look.
