In the now minimalistic world, sustainability is modish and less is more. Ostentatious expensive decor ideas are replaced by smart cheap recycled ideas. People are embracing the need to waste less and save more by opting for industrial style decor for their houses. This, however, is such a minimalistic idea that it cannot be called as a decor. It just signifies the beauty of unfinished touches, rustic vulnerability and recycled ideas. Industrial style takes clues from old factories and industrial space that have been converted to lofts. To accentuate this idea, components like weathered wood and brick is used for the walls, which are complemented by furniture of neutral tone colours. Everything is left undone with raw materials exposed to give a “warehouse” look to the whole house. The furniture used in these houses also signifies the same meaning.
There are many varieties for selection of lounge in this style. You can go for a classic Chesterfield sofa or an upholstered leather couch. Try to stick to solid, warm colours for the couch. If you extremely want to stick to this style, then you can use different innovative recycling ideas for couches. For example- you can place sofa seats and cushions in a wrought iron cart with wheels or you can make a sofa from oil barrels or old car seat. If you have a large space, you can opt for a large sectional sofa with low heights. But, remember one thing, do not try to make the place look formal with clear lines and angles, the beauty of this style is that it embraces the informal and the true nature of things. So, do not try to be rigid, be free in your choices.
Recycled Tables and chairs
For the tables and chair, use materials like wood or oak with metal framing. You can also use recycled things. There are many varieties of tables for every purpose, like a coffee table, office table or bathroom tables. You can always use the simple wood furniture that is available in the market, but if you want to recycle things, then you can use old clothing leg-machine, old suitcases, car seat or bicycle seats, for the chairs, you can opt for metal chairs or wood chairs. The other important material of this style is galvanized pipes. You can add this in your decor in many ways, on bookshelves, in bathroom fittings, tables, chairs or storage spaces.
