Your Pinterest boards are populated with impossibly cool SoHo lofts. But the real estate? Not exactly in your possession. And it doesn’t have to be. Just incorporate a few industrial-chic pieces to bring downtown style to you. Here are five picks to get you started.
- Leather Chair
Cigar-brown leather plus sleek stainless steel puts a contemporary spin on the classic utilitarian accent chair. If your guests weren’t so polite, they’d fight over who gets to sit in it.
- Metal Bar Cart
Casters give this bar cart a cool utilitarian feel. The fact that it’s also silver and mirrored? Let’s call that a glam bonus. Just load it up with spirits and you’ve got yourself a mobile drink station.
- Industrial End Table
Mimic the exposed systems of converted lofts with a piece that could have been salvaged from a warehouse. This wood and iron end table totally fits the bill. Just pretty it up with a potted plant.
- Pendant Lights
Sure, lighting helps you see, but it should also be seen. Sleek mouth-blown glass makes a statement, day or night. Grab multiples to hang over a kitchen island or dining table.
- Natural-Fiber Rug
A super-versatile, neutral-hued jute weave works to dress up hardwood (or concrete) on its own or as an anchor for layers. To really get the urban loft feel, pile a Moroccan-style rug or two right on top.
