What is an industrial look?

The industrial style is the use of robust and raw materials (including old materials such as concrete, brick, steel, leather and wood). An industrial interior also features many functional elements. The industrial interior is characterized by a tough, sober, sleek and clean appearance.

This style has come over from America. Because, just like we are now, they are facing a shortage of housing. There, too, there was a surplus of empty business premises such as factories and schools. So they started using these spaces as living quarters. The industrial interior is inspired by the factory architecture of the 19th and 20th centuries.
