Industrial style: interiors with an industrial touch

The United States is considered the homeland of the direction, but opinions diverge regarding the time of its appearance. Some believe that industrial was formed in the 90s of the last century, when industrial production in America was intensified. New enterprises were opened everywhere, entire factory districts. Against this background, the aesthetics of urbanization was formed and stood out in a separate style of literature, music, fashion, interior design.

Others associate the birth of direction with the Great Depression of the 30s. When manufactories and factories were forcedly closed or transferred to the outskirts, the owners began to rent unused buildings for rent for housing. And if, at first, industrial themes as a living space were associated with an economic crisis, closer to the 1970s, the originality of the design of such buildings became incredibly valuable.

The factory premises, refined by designers, were turned into offices, bars, art galleries, hotels and shops. From there, industrial style moved to residential interiors: both in the former production premises and in standard apartments with industrial attributes. “Loft” and “industrial style” – is there a difference?
Mostly, but there is. Loft can be called a local case of industrial style. Indeed, besides industrial aesthetics of textures and forms, the residential “attic” (loft, translated from English) is distinguished by a huge space, with almost no interior partitions, and high ceilings. A classic loft is a former factory or storage room. And the industrial interior can be embodied in a standard apartment with a traditional layout.

Loft is more correlated with the idea of ​​bohemianism, exclusivity, high cost. And the industrial style embodies a more brutal atmosphere that can be created with simple and practical materials. And if a loft is self-sufficient as an interior style and requires dominance, then industrial often acts as an excellent background for more decorative design trends. “Loft” and “industrial style” – is there a difference?
