Who would have dreamed that interiors once reserved for factories and warehouses would one day grace our living spaces? The industrial style movement has taken the design world by storm — and we love it! Here at Olde Good Things, our salvage team seeks out the industrial with our careful excavations of historic buildings.
Not only is the loft look the epitome of sleek and modern, it adds a simple, utilitarian vibe to household effects. By combining the durability of historic craftsmanship with contemporary design, hard, manufactured edges with soft, discreet undertones, the industrial living space achieves a robust balance between nature and the innovation of man.
The secret to achieving this ambience is by using open space as a design element and breaking up the space with a few signature items. The industrial look may include, but is not limited to: marine salvage, industrial carts, pulleys, salvage machine bases, and salvage lockers illuminated by industrial lighting fixtures. Lighting can be achieved by utilizing overhead holophane fixtures from a factory, or repurposed steel cage sconces. Earthy elements like copper, tin, iron, and corrugated metal are salvaged from the discard pile and made by Olde Good Things shops into mirrors and furniture.
Custom Industrial Tables
One of the most highly revered pieces of the modern design aesthetic is the custom, industrial style dining room table. Olde Good Things prides itself on repurposing pieces of unassuming, natural materials into beloved and substantial tables. Custom tables can feature surfaces constructed of reclaimed wood or steel, paired with steel or cast iron legs. Clients have the option of ordering matching wood benches to complement their custom industrial dining table. Tables are made-to-order with a 6-8 week production time. Table top sizes can be customized to fit need and usage.
For a custom piece of history like the rustic table, Olde Good Things offers a selection of pine, oak, maple, walnut, and steel for the surface. Slabs are available in smooth, rustic, or semi-rustic textures with a selection of stain colors. Cast iron or steel legs serve as a base.
