The industrial style was born in the lofts of reclaimed warehouse and industrial buildings. Open plan, they embraced bare brick, steel and reclaimed wood and the modern industrial interior design style as we know it was born.
The core elements remain the same as too does its penchant for being a practical, versatile style. The reclaimed wood furniture used through the scheme brings warmth and so its no wonder it is still a popular style for every room in the home. But where it does come into its own is in the kitchen.
Why choose an oak dining table?
Oak is a slow growing tree thus its grain is packed tightly together. Hard and incredibly robust, oak is a timber used in a variety of application. And when it is no longer needed in that shape or form, reclaiming it to make reclaimed oak dining table means we continue to benefit from its robust, yet warm nature.
The industrial style kitchen
The industrial style is not without its points of luxury. Don’t starve your industrial style kitchen of the finer details and hints of glamour because, with well-placed accessories, it will be a stylish and unique space.
A 6-seater dining table is an ideal size – it makes for a great everyday table as well as space for when you entertain more formally – and by keeping it simple, you effectively allow it to shine even more.
With a dining table in the kitchen, it is easy to forget the wall accessories or assume that because it is the kitchen, it must be kitchenalia that adds the detailing that complements your industrial kitchen table. A wall mirror with decadent frame won’t go amiss in the kitchen and with a metallic frame, it sits beautifully within the industrial scheme landscape too.
Make a statement with an oak dining table
Oak, as a material, makes a statement all of its own. People love it, they love its appearance and the feel of it too.
