Built to last these industrial coffee tables are thoroughly modern, yet sure to become heirlooms in their own right. One thing’s for sure, you don’t have to work in a factory to appreciate their ravishing good looks.
As industrial designs have such a tremendous presence in a space, we think these industrial coffee tables are just the thing for anyone looking to dip their toes into the movement, without purchasing a piece that requires a total room rethink. They’re the perfect size to seamlessly incorporate into any number of looks, while adding a bit of edge and a fantastic practicality that improves every space.
For instance, if a lot of your home draws inspiration from Scandinavian designs, a table that incorporates an organic material, especially a lighter stain wood, will blend perfectly with the bright colours and ample soft forms of your existing furniture and decorations. A piece with wrought iron legs will add just the right amount of texture to the space. Like throwing a slick leather jacket over a more formal blouse, it shows that you’ve got a rebellious side, too.
Or if your taste tends to more of a vintage groove, pieces that embrace the styles of manufacturing and industry from the early 20th century will add some functional flair to your space. Try a table inspired by an old-fashioned workbench or better yet one that incorporates repurposed parts from construction equipment. This will look amazing next to re-wired gaslamp sconces, classic persian rugs, and well-worn leather couches that you practically sink into. Some prints that celebrate the old ways are essential: cruise line advertisements or posters for films from the golden age of Hollywood.
