We are all familiar with the usual industrial-style decorative details such as unfinished concrete, exposed piping, filament bulbs, and recycled wood. But leave it to interior designers and architects to think of different reinterpretations of the industrial look. From vintage-glam to Brutalist, get some design inspo from these pros:  

Raw materials, barebones finishes

Classic, industrial-style materials can be found throughout architect Alistair Sadie’s house—concrete, recycled wood, metal screen, and gravel—but all of these finishes were given a rustic touch to create a homey atmosphere. “We also had to look for cheap materials that will look luxurious when mixed together,” Alistair says.

A touch of glamour


Gino Eraña’s home has all the usual finishes of an industrial-style home: bare, concrete walls, tiled floor, and wrought iron dividers. But the interior designer added a twist to the style by creating a luxe atmosphere with a tufted headboard, brass and gold décor, and his own customized accent wall made out of Vasari plaster (below).

Decorator and former Real Living creative director Gwyn Guanzon describes his condo unit as “exotic Brutalist,” but there are some really unique, industrial-style elements in his home that you can take inspiration from. One of these is the amazing dining table base made out of water pipes that was designed by Gwyn and custom-built by Asian Tropical Lifestyle (below).

Vintage-eclectic touches


There is a way to inject feminine, eclectic touches into an industrial-style home. Interior designer Brill Flores-Sanchez did just that in her 120sqm penthouse in Caloocan. She used industrial wood-and-metal shelves, rustic brick walls, and repurposed filing cabinets, and mixed these with flea market finds plus colorful furnishings for a truly unique look.

Leave it to midcentury modern mavens Wilmer Lopez and Thor Balanon to create a condo unit that has the right mix of industrial, midcentury, and Bauhaus touches. According to interior designer Wilmer, the gray walls and floors “…not only create a raw, unrefined look, [but] also complements the signature shapes and textures often seen in midcentury modern furniture.”
