Guest Picks: Industrial Chic
There are so many ways this style can be incorporated into interior design — from furniture and home accessories to wall coverings and funky lighting — and there are great options available for all budgets. Here are some of my favorite picks for creating an industrial chic home.

Eclectic Coffee Tables
This is a great coffee table! It has heaps of character, and it's a great piece to add to an industrial-style interior scheme.
Industrial Wall Storage by House Doctor
I love this aluminum metal storage unit because it would work so well in a variety of different rooms. You could hang it on a kitchen wall to store kitchen utensils, in a study for office and desk essentials, or even in a bathroom to use the metal pockets for toothpaste and toothbrushes.
Modern Storage Cabinets
Funky and functional, this metal storage cabinet could work really well for storing children's toys. All they'd need to remember is the number of the door where things should be stored.
Czechoslovakian Factory Lights (Large)
Oozing with true industrial charm, these eye-catching pendant lights were originally from a Czechoslovakian factory. I'd suspend them from my ceiling with steel chains.
John Lewis Chest, Multi, 9 Drawer
This is a perfect little piece of industrial chic. It's great for using on a desk for storing paperclips or rubber bands, or you could put it to use in the kitchen for storing teabags.
Modern Side Tables & End Tables
I love the design of this magazine rack side table. Magazines slot into the wire mesh on the base, keeping everything organized and in one place.
Hose Designer Radiator
What does this look like to you? Amazingly, it's a modern industrial-style radiator, produced in a hose design. It's really unusual and a definite talking point!
Meridiana 2011 Chair
This designer chair has a great contemporary feel to it. The criss-cross nature of the chrome steel structure adds interest and character to the design.
Dune Concrete Wall Tile
Wow, these tiles are amazing! They're handmade and full of texture — you just want to reach out and touch them. This one has a concrete-like finish, which is perfect to add interest to walls in an industrial chic scheme.
Modern Home Office Products
These are so clever. The clips use static to keep them on the wall (so no need to put any DIY skills into action), and they are great for keeping notes and memos handy. The shiny metal of the clips gives them an industrial feel.
Eclectic Side Tables & End Tables
This isn't going to tell the time, but I love the style and design of this table, which incorporates a distressed antique metal clock.
Meuble Low Stool
Any industrial scheme has to have a piece of Toilx furniture in it. This is a great stool that has multiple functions: it's a seat, it's a bedside table and it's storage.
Dulton Five Drawer Storage Chest
This adds a wonderful splash of color to a room, while still being super practical. There's space in the chrome-plated handles to add labels, so you'll never forget where you've stashed your paperwork or treasures.
Vintage Industrial Hospital Stool
Suitably quirky but also very comfortable, this 1950s industrial stool was originally used in a hospital. The spring construction on the frame adds interesting detail.
Concrete Wall No. 6
For an urban industrial feel, try adding the look of concrete to your wall. This amazing wallcovering is part of a collection featuring no less than 36 different takes on the material. Who knew concrete could look so good?
Set of 2 Glass Box Lanterns
I like the unfussy design of these glass lanterns. They're a great way to add softer light into a room at night.
Ella Side Tables
This set of iron nesting tables with clean, curved lines would work well within an industrial theme.
Industrial Table Lamp by House Doctor DK
The brushed aluminum of this lamp works so well with the wood. It's a bit softer than some of the other pieces, and it's perfect if you want a touch of industrial style in a room. It would be great for use in a bedroom, study or lounge.
Industrial Style Metal Console Table
This metal console table is narrow enough to fit into a hallway. It's also on castors, which makes it so easy to move around.
Personalised Rusty Metal Initials, Words or Numbers
If you love typography, then these rusty metal letters can be used to create your own wall art or decorations to prop on a mantelpiece. Pick a single letter, initials or a favorite word.Next: Industrious Casters
