The Industrial Chic style is definitely moving up the charts in terms of popularity.It has become trendy for people to live in former factories, warehouses and lofts and the Industrial Chic style just "fits" in these spaces that are full of exposed raw materials like brick, steel and concrete. However, decorating in the Industrial Chic style doesn't require exposed steel beams and columns and expanses of exposed brick. The right combination of lighting, furnishings, and accessories can bring this interior design trend into any home. We've put together an example of how to achieve the Industrial Chic look into your home: Lighting Create a focal point with this vintage-inspired bronze chandelier with caged Edison bulbs  and mix in a combination of industrial table and floor lamps for a well lit room. We like this console lamp with seeded glass and Edison bulbs and a brass articulated floor lamp to fill up an empty corner or to use as a reading lamp. Furniture Pick wood and metal pieces with a rough or salvaged look to it. A set of accent table with tops that resemble a cog is perfect for this style! Add in a distressed wood coffee table with a metal base to get that salvaged feel. Bring in some softer profiles to make the space feel comfy and warm, like a linen-covered over-stuffed sofa  or  a tufted arm chair in weathered leather . Accessories The Industrial Chic palette is very neutral, so texture is especially important. Layering accessories like decorative pillows and a throw in different patterns and materials are an easy way to incorporate texture into your design. We love the combination of this ikat-patterned pillow in shades of rust, gold and a silvery blue with an hair-on-hide pillow with a chevron pattern .   A looped pillow in a beautiful red clay color brings even more texture to the pillow combination. Add a pumpkin orange throw to bring out the orange in the ikat pillow. A piece of wall art is yet another way to bring visual interest and texture into your room. This abstract giclee canvas print complements the neutral palette of the style and adds a little blue to the color scheme. If you're not ready to dive into this look with both feet yet, mixing in a few Industrial pieces into your design will add a little Industrial Chic flair to your space.
