The industrial chic style is highly charming, elegant and sophisticated with a tinge of raw and edgy in the mix. This style redefines the typical moodiness of the simple industrial style and emulates it in a slightly light hearted and contemporary manner. Accessorizing is a pretty important part of the overall design when it comes to this style. So today, we’ll be featuring 5 accessories you definitely must have when you’re decorating an industrial-chic home.
1. Suspended Edison Bulbs
The suspended Edison bulbs are definitely a quintessential accessory for any industrial-chic home design. It emulates the rawness of the authentic industrial look while also bringing in an edgy style that looks highly trendy. You can hang these over the breakfast bar, the dining table and even the bedside tables in the bedroom if the aesthetic calls for it.
2. Piped shelving
Another essential part of the industrial-chic aesthetic is the exposed piping. Since you’re going for a half-chic look with the industrial-chic style, exposed electrical piping on the ceiling looks good only sometimes. Other times, you can use it in the form of in-built furniture. The wall-shelf design in this image is an excellent example of how you can use this kind of an aesthetic in a functionally pragmatic way.
3. The light fixture style
While Edison bulbs are all well and good, you can opt for a diverse range of light fixtures to properly emulate the industrial-chic style. Track lights are a great option, especially when you want to accentuate a certain part of your interior design. You can even go for stylish suspended light fixtures that can be hung over the bedside tables and complement the edginess of the industrial-chic visuals.
4. Laser-cut screens
Laser-cut screens are another excellent way to emulate the industrial-chic style with ease. You can opt for a pattern that is delicate but also exudes a commercial vibe. Then you can use it as a partition wall, half wall or even a bed-headboard feature. All of these applications need to complement the overall style and accessorizing of your existing interior design.
Furniture is the most obvious kind of accessory in any interior design, so it’s the foremost thing you have to consider while designing an industrial-chic style home. Select cabinets that have the right distressed appeal, chairs that are the right amount of funky and artwork that complements this style holistically. Only then can your industrial-chic style seem authentic.
