Throwback Thursday: Industrial Style
This trend featured in a kitchen from our March 2007 issue is back in a big way for its second generation.
In our March 2007 issue, we featured a kitchen that epitomized industrial cool, and just seven years later, we’re seeing the trend rearing its head again. This time, though, it’s taking on a more glamorous and even feminine tone, with industrial elements appearing alongside chic chrome or elegant shapes. Here’s three decidedly modern pieces that embrace the trend.
Chrome at Home
Dining room tables and chairs are abundantly available in various woods and finishes, but this Picnic Table by Union Wood Co. is ultra-industrial fabulous. Contrasting chrome legs with a rough wooden table top and finished with chunky bolts, this table offers the versatility of pairing with almost any style.
We’ve written about an array of industrial lighting options—including in our Industrial Chic feature from this year’s Jan/Feb issue—but we’ve added this Tetsu Moku pendant lamp by Urban Barn to the mix. With a boxy wood and metal frame, the light fixture is the perfect balance of eclectic and glam.
Not sure if you’re sold on industrial style? Try out a smaller statement like this classic coat rack for an entryway made of industrial materials with a touch of vintage. This 1930s French Brasserie Coat Rack by Restoration Hardware uses brass for timeless elegance and a large mirror for utility.
