Design Trends: Industrial
Sometimes seen as more of an urban, Brooklyn-cool aesthetic, the design trend often crops up inside San Diego restaurants and clubs. URBN, Analog, and Fig Tree Cafe Hillcrest immediately spring to mind. Mixing brick, concrete, exposed pipes, industrial light fixtures, slab wood, and stone accents, these spaces hit just the right note of cool and cozy.
Brick and concrete cozy? When warmed up with a rich-colored slab of wood and unfussy details, yes. Certainly more than your grandmother’s penchant for combining armchairs in every heavy, tapestry floral available.
To incorporate this trend at home, think simple. Install some industrial pendant lights over the island in your kitchen for a modern and updated look. Switch out your faucets, curtain rods, and hooks for fixtures in brushed nickel. Switch out your coffee table with slab wood to give the room a focal point with more texture. With this trend, a little goes a long way.
