The industrial look has become one of those perennial trends that comes back every year. We love it because you don’t need a converted warehouse or loft apartment; you can inject some tough love into any kind of home. Bare bulbs, metal framed furniture and reclaimed style wood have all become key cornerstones of the look that wouldn’t look out of place in a 2-bed semi.
The glam new twist from Next’s Fusion range is the update we’ve been waiting for. They key is black accents – Next have teamed salvage style with a hit of chic ‘Scandi Noir’. Pairing natural materials with a charcoal finish, the collection’s hero pieces have given classic industrial style a luxe makeover.
We think the Jefferson ladder shelf is a star player in the collection. Retaining all the rustic textured charm of reclaimed wood but with a charcoal finish to give it a smart edge. The practical storage is also the perfect place for creating a styled-up display, with baskets, frames, books and trailing plants.
