Deeper shades used in the furniture pieces of a room can work to create a complex, yet modern industrial décor plan. Black and grey décor pieces work exceptionally well, as do deep and matte shades of blue or purple.

Wire and metal particularly work well to solidify the industrial look, but work in some softer vintage elements such as a faux velvet or fur rug, as well as thick drapes, to create unique and interesting appeal in a room that won’t be forgotten any time soon.
