The industrial style is quite a popular form of interior design in Singapore. Homeowners absolutely love the edgy beauty of its aesthetic and embrace its unique charm quite fully. However, many do not know the small detailing that makes this style truly ‘industrial.’ So today, we’ll be taking a look at how the Astherior Interior design team used these details to get the best industrial chic aesthetic!
1. Large and small casters
The wheel was a pioneering invention that completely changed the course of humanity, and in the case of industrial style: the way we perceive its look. Casters are small wheels that are generally added to all the décor and furnishings of the industrial style to make it both moveable, as well as aesthetically pleasing. Large and small, fixed and unfixed – all sorts of casters can be found in the décor of industrial style, so don’t forget this small detail!
2. The details of exposed brick walls
Everybody knows that exposed brick is one of the major design elements of the industrial style, but it definitely goes deeper than that. You should always pay careful attention to the detailing of this material. Whether you’re using wallpapers, tiles or actual brick, always make sure to achieve that rough-hewn look that has become such a characteristic of this style.
3. Furniture and pillows
The furniture used in the industrial style has a very unique look – it’s a find blend of cool, weather-worn and luxurious. This is why leather upholstery is quite appreciated while articulating this aesthetic. As far as decorative couch pillows are concerned, try to go for some patterns or new-age textiles with quotes printed on them.
4. Light fixtures
Industrial chic light fixtures are definitely different from typical ones, as they have a much more bold and distinct personality. They usually feature a lot of black wiring and bare Edison bulbs in their designs. Some even have decorative wheels or castors on them. Their distinguished design is one of the small details that you need to carefully curate for your industrial style interiors.
5. Bold, modern and geometric
The industrial style has always been particularly good about using bold modern aesthetics, which is one of its defining qualities. But since modernism itself is understated, these ideas are usually articulated through small details. The achromatic floor tiles in this image are an excellent example of how this idea can be actually implemented while respecting the visuals of this style fully.
