Get the Look

Amy from glasspanic here. I just love the industrial look. To me, there’s something so beautiful about items that weren’t necessarily created for their beauty, but rather for their function. You don’t have to live in a downtown loft to adopt this style in your home. And there’s nothing to be intimidated about – you don’t have to be an interior decorator to put together a great industrial room! So let's get started with tables and seating.

You can create an industrial chic look in your home by introducing strong furniture pieces made of metal and/or wood. Old factory tables or carts on casters make excellent coffee tables, sofa tables, kitchen islands, bars, or vanities. A mid-century tanker desk is a great way to industrialize your office or studio area while an old typewriter table can serve as a side table or nightstand.

Theater chairs, plastic shell chairs, factory stools, and colorful metal step stools and folding chairs are perfect for extra seating. And when not used as seating, stools can double as plant stands or even small side tables.
