Made popular in high rise New York apartments, industrial glamour uses raw materials and bold tones, to give your room a warehouse feel. 2017 has seen a refresh of the industrial look as we know it, with bolder lines, the introduction of mesh, and the use of different coloured metals. Find out which of our frames can give your bedroom an industrial glamour vibe.
Creating an industrial feel is all about the materials that are used. It’s this clash of materials such as metals, woods, cork and even concrete that create the iconic look. Our Oswald day bed uses dark tones and metal joinery creating a repurposed look, indicative of industrial glamour. This clever detailing coupled with its dark coloured metal is very striking. The multi-purpose functionality of the Oswald means it can be used as a single bed frame or a sofa. Adding the Oswald into your home will really make you feel like you’re in a New York City studio apartment.
The combination of repurposed looking materials with different textures really makes this trend a timeless classic. The introduction of mesh is new to 2017 and is prevalent in our Ruskin bed frame. Mesh adds a texture that isn’t always used in furniture that’s fun and interesting to look at. The headboard and foot-end of the Ruskin features mesh and metal joinery to really bring industrial glamour to life.
Industrial glamour isn’t all about dark metals. Adding a splash of colour will add light to a bedroom that features other industrial looking pieces of furniture. The Blake bed frame in champagne gold is a prime example of an unconventional take on industrial glamour. Also available in a very on-trend copper finish, the Blake is a vibrant and colourful take on this traditionally dark trend.
Bold statement lines
Strong vertical lines are very prevalent in all the bed frames featured in this article. Our Ward bed frame has an oversized headboard and footboard with beautiful statement spindles. This frame has a much softer look and is not quite as obviously industrial as the Ruskin and Oswald. The large foot-end especially does mean that won’t be lost in your bedroom. Its grand stature will make this frame a focal point in your bedroom.
