What Makes a Dresser Industrial Anyway?
Inspired by everything from construction sites to city skylines, industrial home decor was first popularized in the 1900s and has had a variety of revivals since then. Industrial home decor is all about metal or steel details, distressed wood, and clean, sharp edges and details. Industrial furniture is fairly minimalist when it comes to decoration. You won’t find much in the way of ornate details. Oftentimes, you’ll see industrial decor combined with other design styles like modern or farmhouse to create a well-rounded look.
Industrial dressers, in particular, feature large, functional drawers and are crafted out of either steel, reclaimed wood, or most commonly, a combination of both. Industrial dressers feature metal or steel details, and the use of reclaimed materials can provide a repurposed flair to the piece.
