The industrial style hearkens back to the turn of the century’s industrial era. Exposed bricks, raw steel and concrete features on both wall and floor. Graffiti accents and reshaped metal pipes play to the fun side of this style. The modern variant is copper in its sleek and shiny form. The usually concealed becomes the exposed: air ducts, support beams and pipes bringing the original purpose of most buildings to life. The industrial style is a place of utility and adaptability that can bring some boldness to your space and life.
