“The vibe at EuroCucina was organic yet industrial, with many exhibitors juxtaposing an experience of fragility with strength and durability.”

“It’s obvious the Italians love their marble, but there is also a sense of pride in the environment and clean living that blends with metals and woods carrying that organic-industrial vibe.
“In fact, Milan was filled with character and charm,” she added, “with its rugged textures bringing a fresh energy and imparting earthy, organic elements.”
The earthy, organic elements can come from natural elements, like reclaimed wood.
But it can also come from greenery or through more natural, organic shapes.
Add strength and durability with industrial metals. Think beyond just your faucets and lighting fixtures. Perhaps you leave plumbing pipes exposed.
Or embrace the trend of strong metal accents in glass shower surrounds and doors.
Cement and exposed brick can also add to the raw, industrial feel that’s softened and warmed by natural wood tones and rounded edges.
Aged or blackened metals are ideal. However, mixing your metals and their finishes will only add to the industrial vibe and the overall strength and durability of the room.
