Comfortable and industrial don’t exactly go hand in hand. Both are pretty contrary concepts, but of course, given the right setting, you can definitely combine them well enough. The industrial style is all raw-edges and distressed finishes, so how exactly can you introduce a sense of unfettered comfort in all of that? Let’s find out!
1. The cloudy texture of concrete
Take a look at this image; what stands out the most? It’s the cloudy texture of the concrete finish tiles that take up an entire feature wall. There is an inherent sense of ‘homegrown’ about that specific concrete texture. It belies the shiny newness of the rest of the interior design to deliver a distinctly comfortable aesthetic about the space.
2. Comfy surfaces
Plush, comfortable surfaces amidst an industrial backdrop are like an oasis of comfort. Take the example of this bedroom; while most of the surroundings have been done up in backs and greys, the comfy look of the bed covers, mattress and pillows is what stands out the most. In this sense, it’s the perfect blend of industrial and comfortable.
3. The plush leather couch
Who hasn’t been beguiled by the charm of a plush leather couch? It’s an expensive furnishing, but it definitely has a huge visual impact – especially when the surroundings are hardcore industrial in style. The comfy outlook of this couch and provide an adequate soothing quota when it comes to styling an industrially comfortable interior design.
4. The best of accessories
The best way to subtly leech off the new-ness of an industrial aesthetic is by the careful and strategic placement of accessories and ornaments throughout the interior design. A well-placed photo frame or a cluster of trinkets can bring in a whole new level of comfortable in a personalized way to any interior design.
Ergonomic comfort is the best kind of comfort, and you can definitely incorporate it in a rigidly set industrial style design. For example, you can even install a well camouflaged hidden door in your HDB interior design in order to accommodate ergonomic and maintain physical and psychological boundaries in your space.
