Giving Your Kitchen an Industrial Flair with Bar Stools

The industrial style has become more popular in recent years with the rise of farmhouse decor, which often incorporates industrial elements. These elements bring a masculine, edgy look to the table. They look great in contrast with softer elements and add character to the decor. In a kitchen, the bar stools are the perfect way in which to incorporate an industrial flair.

Industrial bar stools come in many different forms. Typically, they’re made of metal, iron, wood or a mixture thereof. They can be antiqued, distressed or polished. It all depends on the look you want to create. Look at the overall design and color scheme of your space, think about the mood you want to cultivate and look for a bar stool that captures it while also bringing in that edgy, industrial look.

Here are 10 examples of industrial bar stools to give you some ideas and inspiration.

A wood table fits a variety of decorating styles, too. It looks great in a modern space, traditional space, and even a glamorous one. It’s all in the table you choose and the way you style it. What you can be sure of is that it will bring an element of charm, character, and quality to the decor.

10 Splendid Ideas for Striped Furniture

Stripes are one of my favorite patterns to decorate with because they are always chic and never go out of style. It doesn’t matter what style the rest of the decor is, stripes always work with it and can be counted on to provide some character and charm.

Striped furniture is a great way to bring this pattern into a space. As I said, it is a classic choice that never goes out of style, whether you want to use it on a large piece, such as a sofa, or a smaller piece, such as an armchair or ottoman. It all depends on the kind of impact you want to make. Striped furniture can be as bold or subtle as you’d like.

Here are 10 rooms with striped furniture that show how versatile and stylish this timeless look can be.

When you are decorating a living room, the most important piece of furniture is the sofa. Since it’s the largest piece in the room, it immediately draws your eye, so you want it to be as stylish as possible to be a worthy focal point. What’s just as important as its aesthetic quality, though, is its level of comfort.

L-shaped sofas are fantastic in that they offer both beauty and comfort. The right angle creates an inviting, intimate setting that exudes warmth and is perfect for entertaining. It also fits in a variety of different spaces, large or small. In a large space, it can help create a sense of coziness. In a small space, it takes up very little room while offering a lot of seating.
