Going Industrial

I'm a firm believer that old things should have a second lease on life. That's also the design philosophy of the owners of this 1922 brick house in Copenhagen. For them, things should not pretend to be more than what they are. The most important thing is that they have a real value especially when they're original, old and have the possibility of being used in other ways than originally intended. It's clear the decor of the house is marked by their love of old things. Most of the materials and furniture used are repurposed, like the kitchen tiles which they took from a hotel demolition. They also gave new life to a large cabinet they got from a hospital and now sits tall in their living. Even the curtains are made of old tablecloths and their canopy bed in the master bedroom is made with water pipes. That's what I call industrial chic.
