Sofas for industrial design homes

For those who don't know, the main characteristics of a typical industrial home are:

  • open spaces with undefined borderlines

  • exposed bearing structure as iron pillars or beams and untreated walls

From TV series (especially USA series) to reality, living in an industrial home is a real trend that everyone customize following their style.
Big windows let light come in unifying all the spaces. Walls are enhanced by simple quadrangular steel windows fixtures and the same style is underlined everywhere by small pillars or exposed bearing system. Wood, iron, bricks and concrete walls are the main materials used in an industrial style home, definitely unrefined.

Talking about furniture they must be adapted to an industrial style, the watchwords are: functional and versatile. Nothing must be useless, they have to be the protagonists of lofts and open spaces characterized by high sealing and simplicity, here design sofas are the focus of these dispersive rooms.


Usually, industrial homes, have an exposed brickwork or unrefined plaster wall, the perfect background for leather or fabric sofa, the colour choice could be influenced by these important details.

The first step to turn an industrial place into a welcoming home is to choose design pieces of furniture which maintain a sort of equilibrium between architecture and personal style
