For a fun and elegant juxtaposition, add a feminine piece such as a drippy, crystal chandelier to an urban industrial space. If a whole room isn't for you try incorporating a few pieces. A reclaimed wood coffee table, or a set of galvanized metal dining chairs can add an element of industrial chic. Where to Shop.

Construction: You want the furniture piece to feel solid and heavy. Avoid particleboard and light aluminum frames and stick with solid wood construction. Solid wood frames will generally last much longer and is the standard for fine furniture. However, make sure that the price is consistent with your expectations for how long the piece is going to last. The cushion is also an important point to consider when looking at construction. Before purchasing anything, give it the sit test. No matter how beautiful your new upholstery piece is you won't enjoy it if it's not comfortable. Silhouette: Is the general shape of the piece trendy or will it stand the test of time? A piece of furniture is an investment in your home and says a lot about you. Choose a silhouette that you will love now and in the future. This doesn't mean, however, that you should choose something shapeless or without style. Whether your preferences are contemporary or traditional, there are many updated options available on the market.
Vintage Furniture and Accessories. Let's talk furniture. We know that industrial design involves the use of metal and wood. It is precisely these materials that combine to create a large number of industrial-style furnishings. Many are truly vintage, while others are inspired by old factory and laboratory pieces. Note how the industrial bar stools in the kitchen below fit the space perfectly. As mentioned, retailers such as Restoration Hardware celebrate a love of industrial design through new pieces that evoke the past. Below we see the Vintage Toledo Dining Chair in Antique Green, a reproduction of the classic vintage-inspired draftsman's chair. Metal meets wood for an earthy modern look. For a backless and slightly more polished version of the seating above, we have the Vintage Toledo Dining Stool in Grey Enamel. Shiny, steely and compact, it makes a big statement without overpowering the room.
