French Navajo Modern Industrial Part Three: THE LIVING ROOM!

There are a few key pieces I’ve already put on a wish list for my next apartment. A rich blue velvet sleeper sofa, for starters, a really great Navajo-esque wool rug, a French Industrial style floor lamp, and accents of silk, sheepskin, and some something or other with button tufting thrown in for good measure.

But there are a million different ways to convey this feel without getting so literal and check-listy about it, especially considering I AM on a budget.

After the jump, I’ve collected my favorite and most inspiring “French Navajo Modern Industrial” style living rooms ever found on Pinterest, ever. Ever! If you’re me, anyway.


  • RUG OF MY DREAMS 1 of 16
    RUG OF MY DREAMS
    The rug of my dreams has a touch of pink in it, to bounce off the richness of the blue velvet (found here in a giant lover of an ottoman).
  • LEATHER CHAISE 2 of 16
    LEATHER CHAISE
    Leather: check. Animal skin: I'll have mine faux please. Sparse airiness: double check. Yep, this is a good one.
  • DOUBLE THE VELVET 3 of 16
    DOUBLE THE VELVET
    Am I opposed to matching sofa sets? Yes. Unless they look like that. Then, no.
  • FRENCH INDUSTRIAL AND THEN SOME 4 of 16
    FRENCH INDUSTRIAL AND THEN SOME
    I think this whole French Industrial thing is just the icing on my cake. I'd like all my extras and tchotchkes to have this feel, please. (Wouldn't mind a brick wall either but, you know, such is life.)
  • BUTTON TUFTING 5 of 16
    BUTTON TUFTING
    My slate gray button-tufted couch is not near so designey but the feel is the same, and I need that rug in my life. (We had those exact stools, from CB2, but sold them when we realized what toe crushers they were.)
  • EMILY HENDERSON, IN MY HOUSE 6 of 16
    EMILY HENDERSON, IN MY HOUSE
    Emily Henderson, last season's Design Star winner and host of Secrets Of A Stylist, does this kind of living room perfectly every time. If I could I would teleport her into my house and just let her go for it. Go for it!
  • DID I SAY FRENCH INDUSTRIAL? 7 of 16
    DID I SAY FRENCH INDUSTRIAL?
    On it's own, French Industrial can be a little harsh, and silly. But when incorporated into a room with lush details, like soft sheepskin, suddenly you've got something amazing going on.
  • THAT RUG, EXACTLY, PLEASE 8 of 16
    THAT RUG, EXACTLY, PLEASE
    Does anybody know where I could find that little lover?
  • BIGGEST FRUIT BOWL ON THE PLANET 9 of 16
    BIGGEST FRUIT BOWL ON THE PLANET
    Giant porcelain bowl aside, is this room not lovely? But you can see how a dark rug to anchor the place is really necessary, I think.
  • SPARSE AND LUXE ALL AT ONCE 10 of 16
    SPARSE AND LUXE ALL AT ONCE
    I would like to state for the record that for a living room that large I would basically do just about anything.
  • MORE OF EMILY HENDERSON 11 of 16
    MORE OF EMILY HENDERSON
    A year ago or so, Emily posted this image on her personal blog. It's her living room. I'd like to take an exact replica, if I might. (Do I maybe need a cow hide rug yes?)
  • AMAZING STRIPES 12 of 16
    AMAZING STRIPES
    Every time I see this room I smile like a dork. It is so amazing.
  • MUSTARD 13 of 16
    MUSTARD
    Maybe blue is negotiable? This room is almost exactly what I'm hoping for, and the mustard yellow is a really nice look. Possibly a blue will be too dark?
  • NOT A LIVING ROOM 14 of 16
    NOT A LIVING ROOM
    Amazing all the same. (I love how they've played with scale in this room.)
  • FOR THE LOVE OF A COFFEE TABLE! 15 of 16
    FOR THE LOVE OF A COFFEE TABLE!
    Sadly, a coffee table is something we'll be skipping in our place, opting instead of extra crawling space.
  • ALSO NOT A LIVING ROOM 16 of 16
    ALSO NOT A LIVING ROOM
    But the office space of Emily Henderson's (did I mention maybe I'm obsessed with her style?) is so lovely. I think it's the gold mug that does it. Note to self: GOLD!
