Modern interior design has embraced the use of industrial materials such as concrete and steel. While these materials were once covered up with ceiling panels, carpet, or paint, many designers now go out of their way to highlight these materials.

Whether you love or hate the "unfinished" appearance of industrial-chic spaces, this aesthetic is everywhere.
