Industrial Decor Brings Treasures from the Past to Today’s Homes

Just in case you haven’t noticed, there’s been a population explosion of late that begs for our attention. Thrift stores with names like Second Hand Rose or New to You are popping up everywhere along with vintage shops and industrial decor showrooms. No matter where you live, the industrial trend has taken off gathering up new converts like Billy Graham at a 1950s tent revival.

Here at Barn Light Electric, we too love the idea of taking something old and giving it new life much like our line of Vintage Barn Lighting. And what better complement to one of these beautiful antique lights than some industrial furniture in the same space? Take this industrial factory cart for example. It’s loaded with vintage treasures like a discarded tackle box, an old dish drainer, and vintage soda crates that hold odds and ends. And the rolling cart keeps all these pieces tidy with the mobility to move where you need it or simply out of the way! We offer a smaller factory cart called The Armory Vintage Industrial Work Station. This 100 percent American made cart features reclaimed steel, salvaged local wood, and industrial grade cast iron wheels. This heavy duty cart can take on any number of jobs from mobile kitchen island or microwave cart to printer station or craft table.

Another flexible find is our Vintage Industrial Wood Side Table called The Restoration. Constructed of recycled steel for its sturdy base, The Restoration has a raw, turn-of-the-century feel. The top is crafted from reclaimed butcher block hard pine that gives the table a warm look. Suitable for any urban home or loft space, this piece is ideal as an occasional table or night stand.

The newest offering in our Industrial Decor line is the Industrial Factory Stool that comes straight from the Machine Age of the early 20th century. In both a backed and backless design, this stool can be customized with color to coordinate with any look in your home!
