How to display rough luxe design in the home

Rough Luxe design is a popular trend that celebrates aesthetics with raw imperfections, unfinished looks and combines this with rustic, industrial undertones. The trend can translate into luxurious design through a variety of products and avenues within the home – from wall treatments to contrasting materials to, of course, lighting.

Here are some ways to incorporate this modern home trend that embraces an industrial influence.

1. Bring outside materials…inside

Better Homes and Gardens recently shared an article on beautiful ways to use brick inside the home. A tried-and-true material, brick brings texture, character, and color to any space and embodies raw beauty.

2. Light up with lanterns

As shown in the image above, lanterns are bold additions that display a rustic design. Progress Lighting offers a variety of lantern collections – such as Piedmont, Crestwood and Bay Court – that support this trend.

3. Add interest by introducing new materials

Consider adding accent textures to a room setting with pillows, upholstering or rugs. Introduce new textures like burlap to add depth and visual interest to your rough luxe design.

4. Add industrial-inspired lighting to work spaces

Consider adding lighting that is finished in contemporary metals like Brushed Nickel and Oil Rubbed Bronze, and feature raw details like knobs and fresnel glass. Progress Lighting’s Fresnel, Archie and  Brookside collections include pendants ideal for grouping above work areas in kitchen and bath settings.

5. Explore decor with upcycled materials

Upcycling is not only a sustainable design method, but it also adds character and interest to interior settings. There is something nostalgic and enchanting about repurposing old materials into new and beautiful items. This rusted windmill featured on Canadian House & Home was turned into a unique wall hanging, making for an intriguing, eye-catching design
