Also, a simple design of metal chairs and stools are indispensable in the dining room sets of industrial style. In office-style work desks, you can try to include wire-like metal details between the two profiles instead of just the descending legs.
Unusual Designs Inspired by Plumbing Pipes
In addition to the pipes that were deliberately exposed in the space, detailed designs of pipes began to come to the fore in furniture. Bookcases, lighting elements, hangers and decorative shelves are just a few of the decoration elements you can use for this purpose.
These products are very successful in reflecting the spirit of industrial style. For example, a bookshelf or shelf unit with tubular carriers on the brick wall alone can express the character of an entire space.
The pipe-like details, which are very characteristic, can also be used in lighting element designs such as chandeliers and lampshades. You don’t need any decorative elements that surround the bulb. Discard the lampshade caps which you use in classic style.
