We’ve taken a closer look at the various elements that make up an industrial home and come up with a collection of inspiring designs. Some of these include raw concrete and brick, industrial-inspired furniture, and creative accessories that bring the whole concept to life.
An Eames Eiffel chair looks excellent with an industrial-style desk, with its reinforced metal framework and raw wood legs. Wood shelving climbs across an exposed brick wall, pausing for surface-mounted electrical wiring that adds to the utilitarian look.
Objects of interest are displayed on the shelving to bring personality to the pared-back decor, like a dreamy sailboat model and a retro vinyl record. An Eames bird perches next to a chalkboard with a cheerful written reminder to be “happy.”

Star Wars patent prints adorn the wall behind this engineer’s workspace as fun inspiration to reach beyond the stars in imagination and ingenuity. Two small storage units carry safety caution stamps over the drawer fronts to embolden their upcycled appearance.
