Perhaps the most appealing aspect of industrial chic design is the urban, utilitarian simplicity of weathered steel, recycled and repurposed wood, and exposed seams. The industrial style didn’t actually start as a style at all, but rather as an absence of style that focused on function over form.

The resultant look is a somewhat androgynous style that’s both rugged and sleek, mixing repurposed or reclaimed materials with the feel of a warehouse loft.
