Get This Look – Industrial Dining

By Marica

When I found this beautiful image on the website of renowned French photographer, Pierre-Jean Verger, I felt so inspired I just had to do a “Get the Look” for it. The core of Industrial Style is to expose elements that are usually hidden – brickwork, exposed I-beams, unfinished wood and all the nuts, bolts and mechanisms that we generally hide. Factory machinery and other bits-and-bops can easily find a new home as brilliant Industrial Style décor items. Industrial Style likes big open-plan spaces as the style originates from converted lofts, warehouses and factories. Other items and furniture that goes well with an Industrial Style space is those from the Mid-Century Modern era – feel free to throw in one or two retro items.


1. Exchange the copper Poul Henningsen lamp for this gorgeous spider-like chandelier available from Le Grange Interiors.

2. Beautiful “scaffold” shelf unit – Weylandts

3. X-Base Trestle Table – Simply Pierre 

4. Replica Jean Prouvé Standard Chair – Three6Zero (a true mid-century modern classic!)

5. Iron stool with wooden seat – Weylandts

6. Black bent-arm floor lamp – @Home

7. If you do not have an exposed brickwork wall you can always find realistic wallpaper of one – this Graham & Brown wallpaper can be ordered through Wallpaper Inn.

8. Add a bit of colour with one or two beautiful ceramic pieces – these blue jars as well as the vases and glass items on the shelves are all from Le Grange Interiors.

9. Gorgeous laminate flooring with a “distressed” effect from Floors Direct (this particular laminate even has faded French words printed on it – totally in love with it)

10. ADD THIS:   Mix and match the chairs by adding one or two of these iron beauties – available from La Grange Interiors.

  1. Idonette and her new Raybelle ( new home) comes to mind immediately. I think that it is just so cool to think that we can actually duplicate a look by sourcing the products locally.

  2. Oh yes – chatterbox back to make another comment – that floor is the floor that we used in an ‘industrial style ‘ office last year. it looks great.
