Industrial-style interior design is edgy, modern, and practical. This style combines industrial materials, like metal and concrete, with more traditional materials, like wood and leather. The result is an eye-catching mixed media design.
Industrial furniture doesn’t need to come in flashy colors or look like a piece of modern art to make a statement. Instead, this style uses crisp, clean lines and neutral tones. Because no matter how experimental other interior design styles get, rectangles and circles will still be the most practical shapes for tabletops. And industrial style knows this.
Industrial style values functionality as much as form so every piece of industrial furniture knows its role and performs it well. After all, if you’re going to become a titan of industry, you have to do your job.
Industrial furniture also tends to be sturdy and have a worn-in or repurposed look that will make you feel at home. Nothing is too precious to use everyday. So go ahead, put your feet up on that coffee table — industrial coffee tables were made for that life.
If you’re ready to bring this edgy-yet-understated style into your home, check out these pieces of industrial furniture to exemplify everything that makes industrial design great. We’ve rounded up industrial furniture for every room in your house, so get ready to redecorate.
Industrial furniture for the entryway
Your entryway will introduce guests to your industrial interior design style, so you need entryway furniture that makes a statement. Add these pieces to your foyer to show off your functional and fashionable take on industrial design.
Abrielle 2-Basket Upholstered Accent Bench in Brown and Natural
This accent bench is the perfect piece of industrial decor to greet guests when they walk through the door. It features a mix of three rugged, industrial materials — a natural wood frame, a brown leather seat, and black metal baskets — in a clean-lined silhouette. Place it in your entryway to set the scene for your modern industrial design.
Austin Upholstered Bench in Beige and Black
Modern industrial style meets retro-inspired design in this plush, upholstered bench. The combination of wood, metal, linen, and leather adds rich texture to this piece. Plus, the hairpin metal legs bring in elements of mid-century modern design. It’s a great addition for any home decor that combines industrial elements with more traditional style pieces.
Quince Console Table With Open Shelf in Natural
The Quince Console Table exemplifies the clean lines and utilitarian nature of industrial-style interior design. It features a metal frame with a solid mango wood top and matching solid wood shelf. With its thin silhouette (at only 16 inches deep), it can squeeze into a tight entryway.
Shepherd Sofa Table With Two Shelves in Rustic Brown
For any lover of industrial farmhouse design, this sofa table has the same footprint as your average console table and will fit perfectly into your entryway. It has a brown wood tabletop and two shelves to provide plenty of storage space. The metal frame features fully functional wheels, including swivel wheels at the front and back that make it easy to maneuver and add eye-catching rustic style.
Industrial furniture for the living room
Your living room furniture should create a comfortable space to settle down in at the end of the day. But industrial furniture isn’t known for being warm and fuzzy. So you need pieces that strike that balance between comfort and style.
Drake Pillow Back L-Shape Sectional in Smoke and Onyx
Much like the mixed metal and wood combinations we see on hard industrial-style furniture, this soft sectional also features mixed materials. It has grey chenille fabric cushions and a black leatherette base, with both colors mimicking the metal and concrete materials found throughout industrial design. It’s the perfect centerpiece for your industrial-style living space.
Apperson Cushioned Back Sofa in Light Grey
For a smaller living space, a sofa provides plenty of comfort in a smaller footprint than a sectional. The Apperson Sofa will sit stylishly in the center of your industrial-style living room. It features clean lines in a neutral, light grey fabric while the sofa’s metal legs will complement the metal accents on the rest of your industrial furniture.
Avery Rectangular Coffee Table With Metal Legs in Natural and Black
This solid wood coffee table features an all-natural mango wood tabletop with black metal legs. Its clean and simple silhouette makes it a fit for any industrial-chic home. And yet, the contrasting geometric shapes of the square table top and triangular table legs provide striking visual contrast amid the simplicity. You can pair this industrial coffee table with matching end tables.
Hadi Round Coffee Table With Hairpin Legs in Cement and Gunmetal
If you prefer a round coffee table, then this piece of furniture will add another industrial-chic material to your space — cement. The Hadi Coffee Table has a poured-concrete table top and a black metal base. The natural texture and color variation in the concrete adds distressed style to your space and you can complete this industrial look by adding matching side tables.
Brockton 71-Inch 3-Shelf Sliding Doors TV Console in Rustic Oak
With sliding barn doors and a rustic oak finish, this TV stand will fit with any industrial farmhouse design. The combination of open shelves and behind-closed-doors cabinet space makes this an ideal media console. You can put your modem and entertainment system on the open shelves and hide games, movies, and other less-decorative items behind closed doors. True to industrial design, form meets function.
Harrington Tripod Legs Floor Lamp in White and Black
To complement the clean, geometric lines in your industrial-style living room, add this tripod floor lamp. The tripod legs add a triangular shape that creates visual contrast with the round and rectangular furniture in your room, proving once again that your design doesn’t need to be flashy to be eye-catching. The black metal base of this lamp will also match the other black metal elements in your design.
Industrial furniture for the dining room
When it’s time to sit down for dinner, industrial dining room furniture is a practical choice for both eating and serving. The sturdy design of industrial furniture will ensure your dining room is ready for years of entertaining.
Neve Live-Edge Dining Table With Hairpin Legs in Sheesham Grey and Gunmetal
This dining table features a solid sheesham wood top with black metal legs. The hairpin silhouette of the legs adds a touch of mid-century modern style to your industrial home decor, and the live-edge lends an effortless, natural style that makes this piece feel lived-in.
Aiken Upholstered Tufted Side Chairs in Brown
The brown leatherette on these dining chairs adds another richly textured material to your room design. The bucket style seat is simple, functional, and comfortable. It suits any industrial, mid-century modern, or Scandinavian-style design. And you can also get this design in matching counter stools for your kitchen island.
Misty Rectangular 3-Door Server in Grey Sheesham
The stunning natural grey sheesham on this sideboard matches the grey sheesham on the live-edge dining table above. But with the three wood tones on this cabinet’s doors, it also gives you the option to incorporate a wider range of warm neutrals. Plus, behind that stylish appearance is a lot of functional storage space. The Misty Server makes a great storage cabinet for your serveware or extra pots and pans.
Evander Accent Storage Cart With Casters in Natural and Black
If you don’t have room for a sideboard — or you have all that room and then some — a serving cart will be a fun and functional addition to your dining room. The Evander Storage Cart is a practical, multi-purpose pick. With its storage baskets and shelf, it can serve as a bar cart, breakfast cart, or sideboard. The black metal design will match your industrial home decor, and the swivel caster wheels allow you to easily maneuver it between the dining room and living room when you’re entertaining.
You’re an industrious designer
Being industrious is a big part of industrial-style interior design. You need to find pieces that are functional and that fit your space and your budget. One of the best ways to do that is to shop in person.
By shopping at a furniture store near you, you can support local businesses and find the ideal industrial furniture to complete your room design. When you find a gorgeous new cement coffee table or wood and metal bookcase, you can see it, touch it, measure it, and make sure it lives up to your expectations in every way. That way when you’re ready to take your furniture home, you’ll know you’ve found the one.
Sure, maybe that sounds a little too romantic for industrial design, but we modern home decorators know the truth — you can be edgy, practical, and romantic at the same time. And the right piece of industrial furniture will bring out all the feels.
