mood board: Industrial

With the popularity of lofts and warehouses transformed into residences, the demand for industrial-looking furniture to complement the gritty space rose too.  These industrial pieces are usually built with unfinished woods, metals, and exposed structural work.  Continuing our mood board series, we're exploring the latest style: the Industrial look. 

Remember those wooden crates that you used back in your college dorm? Well, Future Perfect transformed them into an artistic angular display called Sum Shelves. Go ahead and show off those art and design books that you collected over the years. When you need to put that heavy art book down, place it on this amazing coffee table called Divided Lands by Studio Roeper, an edgy mixture of etched zinc and charred oak.  

If you get tired of all those grays and browns, give that industrial space a pop of color with the Bascule desk from Soane. The metal desk, reminiscent of old filing cabinets, is topped with brilliant red leather. Complete it with a steel chair from Restoration Hardware and you'll be soon writing your great novel!

We highlighted the Industrial look with the Agnes chandelier from Lindsey Adelman, a galactic pendant in bronze finish and hand blown glass. And for those yearning for a bit of green in all this industrial roughness, we accessorized with a cubist terrarium filled with stalwart plants.

I've always been a fan of industrial themed furniture especially when it's constructed from recycled materials. Very cool.

There is so much industrial waste that can be used or recycled for attractive and unique furnishings.
