In the old days, ''Industrial'' was not yet a style. We later began to appreciate it's rawness and simplicity along the way; lacking in pretentiousness and having visual appeal within it's utilitarian surfaces. All of a sudden, it became a trend when garages, warehouses & old factories are slowly being transformed into chic yet rustic looking hotels with stripped-down architecture and salvaged objects. Adding a twist, this is combined with sophisticated touches such as custom-made furniture and intricately-crafted wall coverings. So, if you are thinking of going in an industrial direction with your hotel design but are not sure where to begin – don't worry, we've got your back. Let's take a look at the current top industrial trends.
There is no question that industrial furnishings are minimal and no-nonsense, with strong, clean lines and without a hint of over-the-top extravagance. Some of the elements which are central to this style are wooden crates turned into tables, old lockers used as storage, battered ladders turned into shelving. You can also add a subtle touch of cushy furnishings to break up the iron and brick of this design trend. Simple upholstered items with no frills such as an overstuffed wing chair or a tufted ottoman can break the tension of industrial décor. Moreover, solid upholstery in natural textures and neutral colors is a must.
