This is a fast-growing trend, as people discover the liberating aspect of revealing perfect imperfections (or imperfect perfection). In fact, today you’re likely to see industrial décor in houses of every style, neighborhood, age, and size.
Pipes and/or faucets coming directly from the wall is a subtle variation on the exposed or contrasted pipes trait in industrial décor. Aesthetically, this setup is entirely functional, with no fanfare or pomp, just the way industrial interior design would want it.
The is also smart. Its compact design makes it ideal for small or shared spaces. It evokes quality and current trends in an unpolished shell and this allows it to stand out and to explore its functionality without also focusing on secondary features.
In the past, “decorating” involved hiding away those parts of a space that reminded inhabitants that the space was actually constructed of something, and that different building materials were necessary in order to make the space function, such as the wiring for wall sconces or ceiling light fixtures. Industrial décor goes against that by adding (or allowing to exist) a raw, unfinished aesthetic. In fact, many design enthusiasts now specifically seek out this ‘unfinished’ look.
We really can’t discuss industrial décor without mentioning the material that, in and of itself, illustrates the essence of industrial style – concrete. Whether used on floors, walls, furniture, , accessories, or wherever, concrete is as straightforward industrial as it comes. After all, very few warehouses or commercial sites would have had floors if it weren’t for concrete.
