I wanted to show you some things that normally catch my attention when I'm out looking for things and maybe this will tell you more about me. I love industrial items, from chairs to tables, lamps, mirrors you name it and if you throw in a great wooden piece then I'm really happy. The wooden pieces that appeal to me most are the cubbies that have many drawers. You can take a piece like this and put it anywhere in your home from your kitchen to studio to laundry room and repurpose it into something else.
Speaking of repurposing, take this metal cart:
It was probably used in some type of warehouse. But can you see this being in a porch or a living room holding your TV. Of course you'd need to own a loft to have just the right cool factor going on, don't you think. Here recently, I've seen some pretty cool looking loft areas in Dallas.
Personally, I'd pair a cart such as this with a cool metal light, such as this pair:
This would really be an interesting item to have around as well.
An old movie light. I saw something like this a while back at the Canton Texas First Monday Flea Market, but had to pass because of the price. I know they aren't cheap by any means so if you find one a great price, you better snatch it up.
I'm also drawn to wooden tables with metal legs:
Bareing the raw metal is more appealing to me than painted pieces. You can always strip the color if you find one painted.
I'd probably pair a piece like that with chairs like this:
And of course you'd need lights like this too:
