Welcoming, charming, with a strong personality. These are three adjectives that clearly frame the industrial style , a furnishing trend based on the use of essential, vintage and sometimes recycled accessories and which for some years has been the subject of profound interest, especially for the furnishing of offices and commercial spaces.
Industrial style: what it is and when to choose it
With a captivating touch and at the same time sober and versatile, Industrial Style was born in the mid-1950s in the American context, when disused factories and warehouses began to be redeveloped and recovered for a new use in both private and public settings. It will take a few decades before the industrial style arrives in Europe, where from Italy to the Scandinavian countries it begins to gain ever greater popularity, conquering small and large businesses and finding particular appreciation thanks to its ability to revive and enhance objects that have now become obsolete .
But behind the success of the industrial style there is a mix of factors, which includes both a growing shared attention towards reuse and the circular economy , and a general appreciation towards its aesthetic peculiarities, where the winners are linearity, simplicity, 'eclecticism.
The reasons that still push designers and clients to furnish an industrial style environment are many:
- The industrial style allows you to give new life to objects, furniture and furnishing accessories that would otherwise fall into disuse
- It is ideal when you need to give shape to large spaces without divisions such as abandoned warehouses, lofts, open spaces
- It does not require particular finishes: exposed bricks, pipes, cables, imperfect painting, furnishings with defects are well contemplated
- It allows you to unleash creativity and imagination, according to the motto "minimum expense, maximum return"
- In the commercial sector it allows collaborators and the workforce to be involved in the displays, who can thus contribute to giving a personalized touch.
The result is a functional whole , where simplicity and essentiality are echoed by robust furnishings of the past with a unique imprint, for an original, warm and pleasant result to contemplate.
