What is the modern industrial style?

The modern industrial style is a contemporary interpretation of the classic industrial style that originated in the factories and workshops of the 19th century. The style is characterized by its raw, unmistakable aesthetic, which is mainly achieved through the use of materials such as concrete, wood and metal.

In contrast to the classic industrial style, the modern industrial style integrates modern design elements to create an updated version of the original style. Clean lines, minimalist shapes and geometric patterns are typical of the modern industrial style and give the space a fresh and contemporary feel. Characteristic materials are often raw, yet "clean", such as polished stainless steel or aluminum. The use of bright colors and elements from space-age design are also popular. In contrast to the classic industrial style, the modern industrial style therefore appears more modern and updated.

Color palette of the modern industrial style

The color palette of the modern industrial style is inspired by the raw, industrial aesthetic of the original style. Typical shades are cool, neutral colors such as grey, black and white, which give the room a masculine and industrial character. These neutral colors often form the basis of the color scheme and are complemented by accent colors that add warmth and interest to the space.

Rusty orange, rust or rusty brown tones are often used as accent colors, reminiscent of the weathered and worn look of old metal. Other popular accent colors are greens, blues and browns, which are reminiscent of the natural world and give the room an earthy feel.

It is important to keep the color scheme simple and minimalistic to give the room a clean and unobtrusive look. An easy way to incorporate the color scheme in a Modern Industrial Style is to use textiles and accessories such as pillows, curtains and rugs in the accent colors to add a subtle touch of color and texture.

Concrete in all its facets: a tribute to a favorite material of industrial design lovers

Concrete is an integral part of the modern industrial style. It embodies the raw aesthetics and robustness that underpin this style. As a material, concrete is extremely versatile and lends itself to a variety of applications, from furniture to walls to flooring. Its neutral color and texture make it the perfect base for industrial-look furnishings.

Industrial fans love concrete not only for its cool look, but also for its durability and longevity. Concrete furniture and accessories are robust and resistant to scratches and stains, making them the ideal choice for high-traffic areas.

Concrete can be used in a variety of ways in interior design. A popular approach is to use concrete as a surface material for tables, shelves and worktops. Concrete walls and floors can make the room strong and striking and act as a backdrop for other furniture and accessories.

Accessories and decoration in modern industrial style

Accessories and decoration are important components of any interior, especially in the modern industrial style. It is often the small details that complete the look of a room and add the finishing touches.


Modern Industrial Style is all about integrating functional and practical objects into the design. Metallic surfaces such as pipes, steel and copper are very popular and can be used in the form of lamps, wall clocks or sculptures.

Plants are another important element. Plants and greenery bring a natural atmosphere into the room and provide a contrast to the metallic and industrial surfaces. Indoor plants such as succulents, cacti and bonsai trees in combination with an aesthetic flower pot or minimalist vases are particularly suitable for the modern industrial style.
