An Industrial Edge

I love the depth, eclectic appeal and slightly masculine feel a piece of industrial furniture or decor can add to a space.
From antique timber filing cabinets to retro steel lockers, done right, an industrial hint can really make a room sing.











I could look at these images all day – except they give me such bad cravings I just have to get away from the computer and head straight down to all the local thriftstores and junkyards I can think of to hunt down some industrial goodness of my own!

    Oh wow, these are all gorgeous Kristine! I am with you, I could just stare at these images all day too!! I am on the lookout for some of those gorgeous wire locker baskets that I see on my favourite US blogs, not sure if we had them here in Australia? I can’t wait to see your industrial project Kristine. ~ Tina xx

    I have just found a green industrial filing cabinet, but it is not a patch on any of these lovelies you have shown. The shelving ones are amazing!
