Even the most suburban homes are getting into the relaxed industrial trend, which brings the edgy, artistic feeling of a downtown loft to any room. Relaxed industrial furniture features rough, distressed or recycled woods and chunky cast-iron accents in sleek, uncluttered designs. Brushed stainless steel and glass blocks are also prevalent.
Textiles in the relaxed industrial style are dominated by natural fibers such as cotton, wool and jute, in textured patterns and earth-inspired colors. The juxtaposition of warm fabrics with cool metals and heavily-grained woods creates visual interest and gives a room the eclectic feeling of a natural collection of found objects.
