Style Secret: The Art of SalvageIndustrial style erases the line between trash and treasure and reveals beauty in everyday flotsam. Singular finds with emphatic lines and forms, from old parking meters and typewriter tables to overscale bolts and gears, give the look its characteristic strength. And if they look a little shopworn, so much the better. Smart strategy: Honestly, it's hard to go wrong here. If a striking object or a collection of pieces speaks to you, display it with pride. You can create greater impact by grouping like objects together or turning salvaged finds into furniture.
