Industrial style has become one of the most influential interior design trends of recent years. The aesthetic was born out of the second industrial revolution, when dramatic developments in industry and the availability of new materials transformed manufacturing all the way down to furniture and housewares. The birth of loft living in working class neighborhoods around the United States re-popularized the style, sparking a newfound interest in the aesthetic and elevating classic pieces to icons of modern design. This book is intended to be a source of inspiration and guidance for those making a foray into the world of industrial style. It presents the most influential names in the genre and their interior design projects, which include features from custom elements to anonymous pieces salvaged from thrift stores.
