Some of us are lucky enough to score an amazing apartment in an old, beautifully renovated factory, complete with exposed brick walls, metal beams, and well-loved wood floors. Whether you live in a factory-turned-loft or you're striving for industrial style in your everyday home, furniture is an easy way to do just that.
Industrial style is known for its metal finishes, factory-inspired features (like pulleys and wheels), and worn materials such as reclaimed wood and buttery leather. When shopping for industrial furniture, keep these elements in mind. Think coffee tables rendered in weathered wood and metal wheels; concrete tabletops; and leather living room chairs.
Here are 10 industrial furniture pieces to get you started.
For a modern interpretation of industrial style, look no further than this sleek West Elm dining table. Featuring clean lines, it still looks completely rustic thanks to its reclaimed hickory base and aluminum top.
To set up your industrial kitchen, you'll definitely need some equally industrial bar stools. In faux leather with streamlined metal legs, a couple of these seats will look perfect as they flank an island.
Worn-in leather feels spot-on when it comes to industrial furniture. You can either search for a vintage leather chair or buy a new one, like this beauty in black leather with midcentury lines.
As you shop for industrial furniture to complete a room, don't forget to include a bookcase. Found at Urban Outfitters, this three-tier option has a downtown vibe with its oak finish and metal framing.
To go really industrial, we recommend furniture that's reminiscent of old tool chests. This Restoration Hardware side table has those bygone details down pat, but still manages to look current and cool.
