My friend, Annie from Lovely Things and I spent our “last hurrah” the other morning checking out industrial home goods at RJ Imports in San Juan Capistrano, California. Annie is moving to Connecticut soon.
A bit of the industrial look can add some “edge” and texture to make things feel up to date.
I had borrowed a couple of RJ Imports cement pots from Debbie for the Better Homes and Gardens shoot. One accidentally broke. So, I wanted to replace it (it’s the one in the upper right corner).
This is a cool vignette. I like the sparkle of these glass wine bottles below.
We are using some industrial counter stools like these for a client’s new kitchen.
These, from Restoration Hardware, are easy to sit on, sturdy and do not require pulling out like some heavy arm chair types.
Or, this one from Wisteria.
My linen counter stools, from Halo Styles, have a bit of an industrial feel with the weathered legs.
And we have two of these steel and wooden baker’s racks from Dovetail in our kitchen.
RJ Imports is where I bought my zinc topped patio table four years ago.
Speaking of our patio…look at the rebirth of my neglected hydrangeas…
I got choked up saying good bye to Annie. We know each other’s frustrations with the technical aspects of blogging and I admire her design aesthetic “live simply, live beautifully.“
Au revoir, Annie.
Anyway, we have a bit of “Industrial Chic” going on in our house…counter stools, patio table, baker’s racks.
How about you?
