Modern Industrial Dining Space

The Havelock Table


Making modern industrial work in your home is about balance; get the form and texture right, and you create an edgy space that is also welcoming. Get it wrong, and you could be left with space that feels cold and lacks personality. To get it right, soften the industrial aesthetic with natural elements like local stone floors, aged-timber and plush fabrics. Exposed brick, stone and pipework are on trend and lend authenticity to a chic industrial space. Add interest with a carefully curated collection of unique items in an off-beat arrangement to bring visual depth, intrigue and delight.

Create a talking point for guests and a hub for memories with pieces from far-flung places and statement art. Scour antique fairs for bygone books bound with vibrant leather; stack together on a shelf - interspersed with vintage crockery and love-worn treasures. Look for exposed light fittings to make a show of on-trend filament bulbs.

Franklin Table


Above, Castle & Gregory's Franklin Metal Leg Table lends an industrial edge to the kitchen of a Cotswolds barn conversion; ticking all the boxes for texture and light, teamed with unique dining chairs finished in a warm, brick-dust coloured fabric or neutral beige. The cast-metal elements boast industrial heritage, moreover the distressed wooden top, finished with a traditional breadboard end, provides a welcome contrast. Below, the unconventional lines of The Havelock with its exposed metal legs and edging will make a statement in your home, pictured here with the angular lines of The Patteson dining chair.
