Soft Industrial Backup
Vintage industrial touches and traditional farmhouse style mix in this Charlotte kitchen. Industrial: Vintage-style pendant lights, reclaimed wood, Toledo stools and exposed brick are all industrial touches. Soft. Rather than using the typical rough hewn finish on the reclaimed wood, the designer had it sanded and finished. A pretty blue and white encaustic cement tile backsplash, white Shaker cabinets and polished countertops all lend the popular farmhouse style so many Soft/industrial mashup: The traditional farmhouse bridge faucet has a dark finish that plays off the bases of the Toledo stools and the light fixtures.
The history of this Tribeca warehouse and architectural elements from the streets inspired the design of this loft. These are balanced out with big moments of polish. Industrial: Exposed rafters, pipes and brick and reclaimed shelves keep the history of the building alive. Soft: Polished chrome, satin nickel bathtub, white porcelain, globe pendant lights, polished wood floors and clear glass contrast the rougher materials with shine. Soft industrial mashup: The shower stone is an elegant marble but like the building itself, it’s reclaimed. The architect sourced it from Olde Good Things in Pennsylvania.Bathtub, vanity, lights: Urban Archeology
