Industrial interior design has been a steadily growing style trend of the last couple of decades. As the name suggests, the style takes inspiration from the factory “look”. It’s a design style that’s easy to pull off and makes a bold statement.
Materials used to achieve the industrial style look include weathered wood, exposed brick, industrial/utility lighting fixtures, and concrete. The colour palette is typically neutral, with creams and warm greys comminating the space. There’s also terracotta exposed bricks, tanned timber. The aim is to achieve a repurposed look by using these materials.
If you’ve achieved the perfect lighting and exposed brick and you’re stuck on what industrial wall art to showcase, allow us to offer some ideas.
Roy Lichtenstein-inspired art fits perfectly with the industrial style look. Inspired by advertisements and comic books, Lichtenstein’s artworks look like bright and expressive pages from a comic. He was also inspired by industry and the commercial press and used industrial dots in his paintings. His ideas led to ground-breaking and original paintings that brought Pop art to respected galleries. This canvas piece will look beautiful in any living space and evoke the industrial wall art style.
Another industrial wall art in the style of Roy Lichtenstein’s Pop art is ‘Grease Lighting’. If the title is familiar that’s because the wall art was inspired by Grease. The eye-popping use of colour, the flush of pink and deep blue hair set against a rose-red backdrop makes this piece perfectly suited for a living room styled in industrial décor.
