SOME TRENDS ARE SO CLASSY, CHIC,
PRACTICAL AND TIMELESS THAT THEY
TAKE ON ICONIC STATUS. THIS GOES
FOR FURNITURE, TOO...
This style was inspired by the
industrial era of the late 19th and
early 20th centuries. It has grown in
popularity over the past few years,
and is often seen in fashionable
restaurants, bars and high street
shops, such as Cos and All Saints.
The trend is all about revealing the
original materials used for building,
such as brick, concrete and metal.
This creates a pared-back, practical
property, where you don't have to
worry about taking your shoes off.
The trick to making this look work
in your home, so you don't feel like
you're living in an actual warehouse,
is to soften the hard surfaces with
fabrics, furniture and accessories.
Think leather, velvet, suede and
metallics; rough ﬁnishes next to silky
smooth ones; leather sofas draped
with wool blankets; linen, leather,
faux fur and sequinned cushions;
and metallic lamps placed on rough
wooden tables. All these carefully
thought-out touches will help soften
your space, while keeping it hip. >
