Let's not forget about the resurgence of vintage industrial metal furniture in the form of cabinets. In fact, many antique dealers are stocking up on metal doctor's office furnishings and selling these pieces for thousands of dollars. You can also buy these items new. For example, below we have the Circa 1900 French Linen Factory Medium Bath Cabinet from Restoration Hardware. The piece was inspired by a pair of metal cabinets built around 1900 for a French linen factory. This 1930s Laboratory Stainless Steel Storage Cabinet from Restoration Hardware boasts a design based on cabinets that equipped 1930s American laboratories. Hand-welded stainless steel, zinc hardware and bullet hinges give this piece true style. As you can see, industrial style takes many forms. From exposed piping on ceilings and walls to wood and metal furnishings and accents, there are many ways you can get the industrial look at home. Whether you go vintage or stick with new items, there's are pieces for every price point.
Back to black – the kitchen tones down the wood theme and reembraces the matte black theme. Here, you can see fabulous tiles taking up the spaces between the rural-style windows. That fabulous window shade style is commonly referred to as ‘Swedish blinds' and they're easy to make at home. The dinnerware is lovely and minimalistic, easily standing out from the rest of the decor. Who wouldn't want to get dressed up more often with a gorgeous dressing room like this one? It contains a stool large enough for two, a vanity for freshening up, an incredible amount of storage. Art Deco was considered a type of neoclassical revival – and the art deco tones are definitely strong in this space. As an aside, it's rare to see a window in a dressing room but it really enhances the atmosphere of this one.
Finally, the materials that pieces of furniture are made from should also be considered, as this will be essential in determining their longevity and proper integration into the decorative style. Usage and materials. Furniture must be made of a material that suits the use. Some materials are harder and more durable, like wood and certain upholstered fabrics, and others are more delicate. A lacquered table has a luxurious look but won't stand up to family dinners over time without a lot of maintenance. In this case, hardwood or laminate is the best option. Something similar happens with fabrics: a faux leather chair is suitable for heavy use and easy to clean, while chenille is always delicate and easier to stain. The warmth of wood, the modernity of lacquer, or the coldness of marble must be integrated into the general style of the project. Materials and textures speak for themselves, and the integration and combination of materials (such as floors, fabrics, and curtains) should be taken into account.
