If you want a bold look for your home there’s nothing quite like industrial chic. The roguish good looks of these industrial tables are sure to make them stand out in your home, bringing an edgy, hip vibe to any room.
Even within the industrial look there are a variety of different feelings and styles to choose from. For the dining room, we love something a little moodier, a tad dusky and romantic. A dining room table with a distressed-wood top and black or slightly tarnished steel legs is the perfect starting place for an intimate dinner. Make sure your flatware stays with the theme: something in chocolate or a dark grey will look great, and consider upgrading your lighting with industrial pendant lights. These fixtures in copper or brass (with warm golden light from incandescent bulbs) will perfectly compliment the deep brown of your table, making the ultimate setting for a lovely night in. Just make sure you use a lighter paint on the wall, or a grey wallpaper pattern, to make sure the room doesn’t feel claustrophobic.
You can also go for a more zippy feel with industrial tables that incorporate blond wood stains or hazed glass. These pieces are perfect for the living room, where they set a welcoming, yet thoughtful tone for any entertaining you might do there. Play with contrasts by placing an industrial coffee table with strong, bold materials next to a modern sofa with smooth, curvy surfaces and a soft microsuede covering. Finish the look with a Mid-Century modern floor lamp in a shiny gold finish--a sort of mix of the two styles. An ideal way to bring variety into a room without losing any visual coherence.
