Lately I've become a little obsessed with industrial furniture and accessories. They are great items to throw into a vintage or modern mix. I love looking around a room and seeing one thing that doesn't quite belong, but still looks amazing in a space, like these kitchen stools:
Things like that will just have to wait until I have my dream house. But for now, I can certainly decorate with smaller accessories that remind me of the industrial age. Check out this galvanized wine bottle rack (I think it's from CB2)
Or vintage industrial lighting - the top two are from Anthropologie - they have some nice (and terribly expensive) vintage hanging light bulbs and beacons.
This is (supposed to be) a vintage dentists light. Love it!
Some other industrial accessories:
Salvaged bank safety deposit boxes found at Salvage Nation on Etsy
And, of course, Restoration Hardware has accessories
A vintage fan is sure to keep you cool and get you lots of compliments - this one was found over at VintageFans.com.
Or this Arc Boom table lamp I ordered from All Modern Lighting (OK, so I cheated with the genuine vintage part - but it was marked down to $52 from $330! with free shipping!)
And Urban Remains, a store in Chicago that sells antique artifacts, had lots more industrial-type accessories, like the ones below.
This metal storage cabinet would look great in an office
And I can picture this beauty sitting on my bathroom countertop:
Lastly, this cart would look great in a living room with some artwork or plants sitting on it and a cozy blanket draped over the side.
I'll have pictures of the lamp on my desk as soon as it gets here. I'm so impatient!
