Industrial Furniture for Shabby, Farm or Mod Decor

OOAK unique upcycled reclaimed farm metal table at The Steel Fork

I really don't think you can go wrong having a bit of industrial furniture in your home. I for one wouldn't mind having a new piece for the sake of housing favorite collectibles or antiques.  I know some of us worry that something industrial won't "go" with the present decor, but perhaps you may need to break some rules. Out with the old "everything has to match " theory and in with the new "anything goes."

Sometimes the perfect decor happens when you throw something together that doesn't belong. The lest things you'd consider making a marriage of, try it out. Be daring, be unique, or if worse comes to worse, steal a few tips from Etsy!  One thing you must remember is that you don't HAVE to keep the same eras interlined.  Mid century modern can mix with the twenties if you let it!  You CAN break all the rules!  It's your style corner today!

French side tables painted red, look great against a shabby country decor wall. Get them at DrabtoFabVintage
