Until now, we have often covered up brick work and industrial fittings in our home in favour for a more clean and contemporary look. But now is the time to expose your fittings as we welcome our latest interior trend: Reclaim Revolution!
Mirroring the utilitarian style found in warehouses and expansive city lofts, Reclaim Revolution is a retro trend that easily translates into the home. Designed for decorating ease, this metropolitan look allows the existing architectural features in the room to be your primary inspiration. Exposed brickwork creates a striking backdrop to any scene and if you are lucky enough to have original wooden floorboards, embrace the grain and restore them to their former glory.
If you don’t happen to have exposed bricks and beams in your home, don’t worry; this latest trend can be easily achieved through choosing the right furniture and accessories. Here’s how you can get the Reclaim Revolution look with just a few key pieces.
Reclaimed Wood Furniture
Introducing reclaimed wooden furniture helps to capture the essence of this raw trend. Reclaimed furniture is made from old, recycled materials. Ideal for adding character to any space, reclaimed pieces boast unique natural graining and knotting that are perfectly suited to an urban décor. The Keeler 5 Drawer Chest will add instant urban style to your home. Made from reclaimed pine and old elm wood, it features a worn and weathered look with mis-matched handles on each drawer.
Alternatively, embrace the reclaimed look in your living room with the Vega Coffee Table, which features a solid wood top and cast iron legs.
When it comes to seating, look to the beauty that worn leather brings to a scheme and opting for an oversized sofa will make a fantastic focal point in the room. The Loreto Sofa combines a contemporary shape with a vintage leather finish for a rustic look.
Juxtapose this worn hide by layering it with beautifully textured cushions and chunky throws in neutral colourways, such as the Chicago Striped Cushion and Brown Faux Fur Throw. This palette of light greys and creams works wonders when teamed with exposed materials and industrial fixtures.
Forget the fabric lampshades and instead embrace the factory vibe by installing low hanging iron pendant lighting on chains with visible wiring. The Oceanic Black Pendant Light looks especially great when hung above an industrial style dining table; cluster multiple pendants together for maximum impact.
Continue the utilitarian look by lighting up dark corners with the Goliath Hobby Floor Lamp. Available in black and white, an adjustable head and neck give it a functional look and feel.
Finally, complete the look with a few touches of metallic embellishments which will help inject warmth and an element of luxury into the scheme. Copper looks great with the raw materials and cool colours of the Reclaim Revolution trend. Get the look with the Set of 3 Copper Trunks or add copper accents to your dining room with our Copper Tumblers.
Reclaim Revolution is an industrial look that is both cool and contemporary and embraces that all-important level of comfort whilst still retaining an extremely stylish and enviable appeal. Will you be embracing the look this winter?
