How to create the perfect industrial living room

More and more homes are incorporating modern design inspirations these days, and the aesthetic beauty of industrial furniture has been at the forefront of this trend. Industrial can refer to everything from the smallest accessories to the largest tables and all stops in between, so if you’ve been looking to become increasingly creative you’ll have plenty of options to choose from.

Reclaimed industrial furniture has the eye-catching looks you’d expect to find, of course, but it also has a story to tell along the way. Each piece can be full of character, whether it’s the exquisite Maddox Pendant Light with its distinctive frosted glass finish or perhaps the stunning Luxe Elm Industrial Reclaimed Wood Square Coffee Table with its weathered top and cage design legs.

A living room that features industrial decor and furniture throughout will showcase your persona, so you should feel free to express yourself throughout. This means adding in your own ideas in both the small things and the large. Try to remember that you can incorporate your favourite clocks, wall hangings, light fittings and bookcases, as well as larger pieces such as the gorgeous Barkby Leather Sofa and perhaps a Barkby Leather Armchair or two.

The only rule is your own personal style

In many ways, the main rule about industrial room design is that there are no rules. If a certain item catches your fancy, go ahead and use it. This can include a brown leather sofa and a leather armchair that don’t necessarily match, perhaps, or a solid wood coffee table such as the spectacular Standford Industrial Reclaimed Wood Coffee Table and a host of other pieces created from completely different materials.

If you’re fortunate enough to live in a home with high ceilings, you can create rooms that pay homage to the urban loft spaces that were once used as warehouses and factories. Your custom wood coffee table - the Oldman Coffee Table would be an ideal example - can be complemented by suitable floor coverings which have all the character your new design will ever need.

The Louis de Poortere Mad Men Metro Black & White Rug is a particularly good choice, as is the eye-catching Louis de Poortere Mad Men Harlen Contrast Rug. If you incorporate an industrial coffee table with steel legs, grey rugs will look particularly wonderful. For a somewhat softer look, it may be worth considering the sublime Large White Icelandic Sheepskin Rug instead.

As you recline in style on your comfy 2-seater leather sofa or perhaps on your luxurious Easton Vintage Brown Armchair - a true industrial classic - you can reflect on the perfection that you’ve created. Don’t forget to include space for all your home comforts, however. The stylish Industrial Wooden Bookcase will fit in well with the overall effect, and the Maddox Industrial Reclaimed Elm Display Unit features a more than pleasing combination of wood and steel.
