Industrial Chic

Covet Collective hopes everyone had a delightful Thanksgiving.  It's such a treat to have time off to spend with family and friends.  I personally enjoyed twice baked potatoes and the sprinkling of Christmas cheer.

In addition to Christmas cheer and gorging on food, I had homework for an Interior Design class project. I love it so much, it's hard to consider it work.  My project consists of putting together three story boards for a "client" selling a design I've come up with for their living room.  I chose a masculine industrial chic look and I love how it turned out. In my hunt for accessories and furniture I perused Restoration Hardware. I can't tell you how in love I am with their entire line of Industrial goods. 

Imagine this cart in front of a comfy feather filled cream color sofa.

and this wine barrel table next to a leather club chair......

and these old gears on a bookcase......

and these vintage looking globes on a console table atop leather bound books.......

See the Resto collection here.

I also came across Hudson Goods.  You can find them here.  I want one of everything!    Wonderful recycling and upcycling of goods.

Here are some of my faves from Hudson Goods.
