Pinning down a style that will work across a whole house isn't always easy – but one of our go-tos has to be 'industrial lite'. The way to build up this look is to cross salvage chic with a rustic coastal vibe and natural materials. This creates a fresh, easy-going, lived-in look that's suited to any age of property.
We've been scouring the high street and internet, and have come up with some key pieces that will help you pull together the perfect industrial lite scheme. Another great thing about each buy is that it will work in multiple rooms, so you can move things from room to room whenever you fancy.
Linen is the perfect rustic fabric for this look – our cotton 'great deal' might not be the real thing, but it has the same relaxed tone.
Hairpin legs are very much in keeping with the industrial lite look. Both make great sideboards or media storage, while our 'great deal would also serve well as a desk.
You won't be able to stop touching these furry little fellas! Either would make a great footstool or dressing table seat. And they can double as a family pet!
These fabulous bulbs on flex are designed to be hung from hooks in the wall. Where space is tight, they make great bedside lights.
Pop one of these near the sofa, in the corner of a dining room or beside the bed. Then, when things start to look cluttered, you can just scoop up those bits and bobs and hide them away. Tidy up, done!
Will these buys inspire you to embrace the industrial lite trend?
