When it comes to decorative details, there are countless ways to incorporate industrial style. Of the clumsy ones (does anyone want gear-shaped bookends?) To the subtlest (galvanized metal baskets or trays), you'll have no problem finding pieces that add the right industrial touch. Use pieces that explicitly include industrial motifs to make a statement, or add a touch of style with traditional designs in industrial finishes.

Coffee tables, TV stands, decorative chairs and side tables require the durability and functionality required by the industrial style and can be easily combined with other styles of furniture and decor. The sturdy metal and wood pieces provide great durability, and their ability to blend seamlessly with a myriad of design styles means that you can update your look as often as you want without having to buy completely new furniture. Like a coffee table or TV cabinet, dining furniture requires robust construction and a practical design, something that the industrial style offers in abundance.
