The industrial design style takes clues from our industrial heritage, marrying the raw materials of steel, brick and wood together, along with a subdued colour palette. It is a style that works in any home and in any room. And, with the new wave of industrial dining tables, the dining room can have the gritty feel of the industrial interior design style too.
Dressing the Dining Room
The dining room needs to be a versatile space and the dining table needs to be so too. On one hand, there are informal gatherings around it, such as at a family meal times and then there are more formal occasions.
Thankfully, there are many different kinds of industrial-inspired dining tables that can be everything in the dining room.
Combine glass, wood and steel
When you want a dining table that can ramp up the classic and elegant appeal for formal dining take a look at the Ashburnham glass top dining table. This stunning industrial dining table top is made from reclaimed timber, perfect for bringing uniqueness and character of its own to your dining room. Protected by a tempered glass surface, there is always something perfect about the sparkle that glass brings to the dining room. Match with upholstered dining chairs of your choice to support the table in bringing glitz and grit to the dining room.
The curves of oval and round tables
In some spaces, you need furniture that fits seamlessly within the dimensions of the room. For smaller or awkward shaped dining rooms, the best table shapes are round or oval. The continuous curves of the circular or oval dining table encourages movement, whereas a square or rectangular tables stunt movement with their sharp corners and angles.
The Sussex Oak oval dining table is elegance personified, with the parquet tabletop simply divine. Comfortably seats 4 to 6 diners, it works well in a smaller dining room because it is clearly meant to be the start of the show. Combined with leather upholstered dining chairs, you can see its true beauty. Why not stay with the industrial look and opt for the Gustav PU leather upholstered dining chair, with its industrial legs?
Soften the edges but still enjoy the industrial appeal
The industrial furniture look can be as gritty and determined as you want but if you do want something softer, there are industrial furniture options that are ideal. The Maddox reclaimed elm dining table is simple, understated, with the slightest of hints to the industrial look with wood meeting steel frame.
Just as we have done here, soften the angles and the overall look with pastel colours. Choose lighter coloured upholstered dining chairs, with wooden legs to keep the appearance peaceful and natural, allowing the utilitarian steel frame to peek through. The lower back and curves of the Sasha upholstered dining chair is perfect for soften the angles of the bench type table.
The industrial look is not hard to achieve and works well with your own changes and additions too.
