HISTORY OF THE INDUSTRIAL RUSTIC MODERN DESIGNS
Little is known about the origin of Industrial Modern Designs. However, it is considered as the product of necessity. It’s assumed to have been developed during the late 19th and early 20th century, mostly at the end of the second industrial revolution. At that time the globalization trend was becoming more prominent, many factories moved their operations to other countries resulting into the vacant industrial buildings. During the same time the cities were also getting extremely populated ultimately leading to the shortage of the residential buildings. Vacant industrial buildings were transformed into residential buildings. Around this time the home owners and savvy architects decided to celebrate the untouched and incomplete beauty of the industrial buildings rather than concealing it.
PHILOSOPHY OF THE INDUSTRIAL RUSTIC MODERN DESIGN
The basic philosophy of the industrial modern décor is to give up all the pretensions. It was designed with the aim of creating a utilitarian design which is not necessarily an eye candy. This design possesses a certain oomph that appeals to almost everybody who believes in the terms like natural, original, raw, etc. It was meant for the people who are not very fond of the pomp and grandeur of the other designs and have a go to mantra of ‘all that glitters is not gold’. The industrial décor in itself is very flexible, for example it could be paired with modern décor or contemporary décor to form the industrial modern or contemporary industrial décor, whereas, with the chic designs it forms the industrial chic décor.
