According to WGSN, the industrial trend is still huge, but the aesthetic is softening. Oxidized surfaces, weathered metals, and wood bring in a soft and natural component while velvety, jewel-toned fabrics add a touch of luxury.
This ongoing style incorporates elements from old warehouses and industrial buildings, like exposed brick, steel, concrete, and suspended pipes in both the architecture and décor. Wood is a key element. As a partner to these utilitarian materials, it provides an organic contrast and warms the industrial edge. The real beauty of this trend is that it blends so many textures and techniques that you can easily make the style on your own. Here are some floors that will help you achieve this style:
Choose darker toned distressed wood-look floors like Copper Barrel Oak and Timber Wolf Pine engineered vinyl plank for a more rustic industrial look, or a sleek design like Cabana Gold bamboo for a contemporary chic feel.
“It’s about pulling your personal favorites from different eras and mixing them together in a way that represents your personal style,” says WGSN Lifestyle & Interiors Senior Editor Allyson Reese.
