We love the look of a chic, industrial, loft-like space. It’s an easy way to incorporate reclaimed wood and brushed metal parts into your home, and it’s great for rooms with high ceilings. But if you’re not currently living in the loft of the artist of your dreams and still want that chic, industrial look, follow our guide to get a little inspiration.
Brushed metal fixtures
We love the look of brushed metal and it’s perfect for adding a chic, industrial look to your space. However, if your home doesn’t have any exposed metal elements, consider getting furniture that does. In this Sag Harbor loft, we installed an industrial dining table to complement the chic, urban feel of the loft.
Exposed wooden beams and floors are great for adding a rustic look to your home. In that Union Square loft We used carpets to cover the floor pieces with damage and highlighted the sections that were in top condition. Regardless of whether or not your space contains exposed wood elements, reclaimed wood furniture is a great way to give your space an industrial look.
Whitewashed brick wall
If you want to upgrade your exposed wall a bit, consider whitewashing. It’s a great way to add a modern and chic finish to the more rustic elements of your home. In this TriBeCa loft, we have sourced a collection of gray and taupe furniture to refer to that whitewashed wall.
Splash of color
All-white rooms can quickly become boring. If you want a chic, industrial look, it’s important to maintain a balance of colors. We love using bright, solid pops of color to delimit different rooms in the house. Check out the bar of this SoHo duplex for inspiration.
Hang up some art
If you want your home to look like an artist’s loft, you have to buy art. A great way to do this is with a gallery wall. Have all of your pictures in the same style frame and first hang the largest picture in the middle and then work your way out. And when you want to start your collection, our experienced designers are happy to source pieces from Saatchi Art.
It’s all in the details
Even if you don’t want your entire home to feel like an artist’s loft, adding chic, industrial pieces throughout the home is a great way to contrast more traditional modern elements. In the mud flap of this house of the Westchester family, we have covered a bench made of reclaimed wood from Crate & Barrel with legs made of brushed metal. It’s a look that is anything but suburban.
