Making Industrial Style Furnishings Work for You

By Decorology @decorology_blog
So a reader wrote me recently with a great find - this industrial metal and leather chair - but she needed some inspiration on how to balance it in her space. So I've rounded up a collection of spaces that are either very industrial or nod to the industrial style, so she can get some ideas on how to successfully incorporate it into her space. Any ideas/tips for her?

Industrial interiors are often characterized by minimalist decor, a cool palette - a lot of grays, and materials such as brick, stone, metal, and glass. I think the key here would be to introduce the chair in a room where one or all of these characteristics are present. It doesn't need to be completely industrial, but add a few industrial elements to balance out the chair. Whether it be a metal lamp, a steel file cabinet, or bare floors.

Making industrial style furnishings work for youThis dining room is a good example of how to mix industrial furnishings in with other styles. The metal chairs and traditional wood pedestal table work together because decor is kept spare and minimal.
