This entire layout reads like a modern art gallery plan, and many of the furnishings have an industrial edge.
I probably use this image way too often, but the conversion of propane tanks to kitchen island pendants is just too clever. The house is a wonderful balance between traditional luxe and contemporary edginess. Industrial pieces are an important ingredients in the mix.
Would you believe this is a cottage? Industrial light pendants, open space, exposed I-beams, a metal railing, and natural light provide industrial style. Check out the exterior of this house. I think you'll be surprised!
Perhaps the biggest trend adapted from loft conversions is stainless steel. First seen on exposed ducts near ceilings, it has spread to become the most requested finish for appliances and range hoods.
This modern addition on a more traditional house fuses the two styles. Reclaimed wood and divided space meets an industrial faucet, smooth floor and large doors that open the dining are to the outside.
Metal beams, a table that looks like it came from a woodshop, rough-hewn planks around the chimney and factory lights contrast with the crisp white walls.
This comfortable living room has several industrial elements that add interest: The metal pendant light, the iron and reclaimed wood coffee table, and the console that looks like it came from a high tech CSI lab keep things interesting.
This home's staircase and wine storage are so futuristic that I expect some Jetsons' robot to serve as the sommelier.
Another great metal staircase is a striking diagonal element.
This dining room seems as though you could move a few elements around and turn it into a loading dock. Architects have learned a lot about scale and how to adapt it to living spaces from converted factory spaces.
Sleek track lighting and a metal sculpture on the wall add just a hint of industrial style to this sophisticated living room.
