An Industrial style dining room is easy to achieve with a few easy-to-follow style tips and some Industrial style furniture. We've got you covered with lots of ideas and inspiration.

What Is The Industrial Style?

The Industrial style in interior design is inspired by the Industrial Revolution period of history and the factories built in the 19th and 20th centuries. The style features a lot of iron, scrubbed wood, concrete and bricks. We also see large, uncluttered spaces to reflect warehouses and machinery rooms with this style. So, for dining rooms, this looks like simple shapes, a mix of brick, wood, black metal and steel, with the occasional pops of green and gold, and pendant-hanging light fixings.

We'll break down our Industrial style tips and inspiration into a few categories, so be sure to scroll down!

Industrial Style Dining Room Inspo #1 - Wood & Black

Mixing warm natural tones of wood with stark black metal is a really striking combination. It creates contrast and drama that will instantly capture that Industrial style! We've got some gorgeous wood-effect and black metal dining tables, which create this look.

Our Kylo wood-effect and black metal table is very Industrial! Here, our customer has paired the Kylo with our slick black faux-leather Corona dining chairs which have elegant, tapered black legs. Shop this look here!

Here's our Kylo table again, this time paired with our new grey fabric-upholstered Halle chairs (coming very soon!). The simple shapes and black hairpin chair legs also create an Industrial look with a bit of additional texture. That's our gold-framed round Emma mirror on the far wall, too. Industrial design styles can be a bit dark, so adding natural light with mirrors is a great idea, too.

Here's our Taranto oak-effect table which has a trestle table look. It's got gold geometric legs and, when paired with all-black faux leather dining chairs like our black Corona's, has a very Industrial look. You can also see how black, wood and gold accessories with simple shapes can add to the look. Shop this combination!

Industrial Style Dining Room Inspo #2 - Glass, Black Metal & Beige

You can achieve that contrasting look of wood and black by using other warm wood-toned accents along with simple clear glass and black metal. Our cappuccino beige faux leather chairs will add the warmth and contrast of wood, while clear glass will keep a room feeling lighter and airier. Because the Industrial style can often be quite dark, clear glass can be an airier alternative to wood surfaces, and glass with black metal can still capture the Industrial vibe.

Industrial Style Dining Room Inspo #3 - Black & Green

Another colour combination that really screams Industrial vibes with a touch of luxury is combining black wood or metal with green velvet. This also creates a bit of contrast and the velvet adds some texture.

Here, a black wood table has been paired with green velvet dining chairs with gold tapered legs. The accessories in gold and the big leafy green potted plants all combine to create a classy Industrial look. Shop these chairs!
