Industrial Style

Industrial style is a new décor trend that emerged from the revitalization of many old industry buildings into chi living quarters.  It includes the use of unexpected and raw materials, such as metal, brick and wood. These can often be combined with softer elements, such as lush fabrics or softer lighting. This trend became popular starting in the 2000’s and is still a favorite among a large portion of the younger generation. This type of décor is most commonly found in urban areas and big cities, due to lofts being so abundant. This space is highly sought after due to its adaptability into any home type.

Some of the key elements of an industrial style art piece is the use of a gentle color palette, with a mix of grays, neutrals and rustic colors. When adding art, it is okay to add a pop of vibrant color to accent the more subdued fixtures and furniture. The key is to find something with a vintage feel that will not overwhelm the minimalist space. Some of the more popular themes in industrial art include architecture and geometric patterns. Cityscapes can also be a great addition to an urban space. Vintage prints or maps can also add a bit of interest to a blank wall in any room.

In our Industrial art gallery you will find an assortment of choices to fit into this innovative design style. We have chosen pieces from classic artists such as Edvard Much’s The Scream and Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks, to more contemporary pieces like Justyna Kopania’s Nostalgy. Urban prints by Atelier de Jiel and Melanie Viola would be perfect in this kind of setting. We even offer colorful abstract pieces like Serenity by Helena Wierzbicki and Farbstudie Quadrate by Wassily Kandinsky for a surprising focal point in your room. Feel free to browse the gallery and see what sparks your imagination in this hot new décor trend.
