At Mocka we adore all things in an Urban Industrial style. The combination of old and new, raw and refined have us looking like human versions of the heart-eyed emoticon.
To share the love, we have complied some tips and tricks on how to nail an Urban Industrial look with some of our very own Mocka favourites.
Raw materials are a key look of the Urban Industrial style. Incorporate furniture made from natural woods - even better if they have imperfections and grains. The Mocka Trestle Desk is the perfect option with a classic design and several colour combinations to try. The new Trestle Desk with a White or Black laminate surface has an exposed natural wood edge to frame the desk.
Mix and Match Woods with Metals
With your key wooden pieces in place, it is time to add metal to the mix. A key feature of Urban Industrial style is the visual interaction between natural wood and sleek metals. The Porto Shelves, Mocka Lockas, Indie Tower and Industrial Stools are the ideal picks. These metallic beauties will add a key pieces to a room and provide a nice contrast in materials. You can even add a pop of colour with the Lockas and Industrial Stools!
Pair with Soft Fabrics and Décor
Some of the more industrial pieces may feel a tad overpowering on their own. Therefore it is important to incorporate softer décor – cushions, rugs and plants - to soften the overall effect. Use a plush Britta Chair, jute Circa Rug or the Fabric and Denim Baskets for the fabric touch. To nail the “industrial meets soft” brief, the Mocka Wire Baskets are perfect for housing large pot plants or extra fabric throws or cushions. All of these warm elements will add a homely quality to the room.
