Use Scale and Material To Create an Urban Loft Feel
Among the hallmarks of loft spaces are their size and the visibility of materials that might otherwise be hidden or treated to a smooth finish: metal pipes and ductwork and well-worn wood flooring, for example. Architect May Sung explains how she used these elements to loft-style look: “In this kitchen, we utilized proportion and texture to create interest to the space. The texture of the reclaimed wood juxtaposed next to the industrial element of the table legs created warmth and coziness, emphasized by the over-scaled ceiling pendant.”
Locally made objects — found and borrowed — tie the entire Spoon and Stable experience together with true Minnesotan collaboration. Stories from the chef’s experiences all over the world were brought into the space with local artists, friends and connections as a celebration of the chef’s Minnesota hometown. The space is filled with authentic stories made to share around the table in a true chef’s kitchen.

Art Studio With Industrial Table and Chairs & Modern Artwork
This studio was designed as a workspace to create original artwork but also to showcase the client's art, artifacts and personal collections. While most of the furnishings in the room feel industrial, the lighted "Texas" sign brings a bit of folk art whimsy to the space. The rugged table and mismatched chairs provides a working surface for multiple people and projects, and pieces of modern art interjects color into the white room.
Guests are handed a white subway tile with a number for their food order. At the table, they find 2x4 stud table toppers wrapped with "Inspired" questions, to strike thought-provoking and fun conversation. Questions are themed around topics like art, music, film, photography and pop culture.
This fresh living room area features neutral furniture, including a gray and white striped armchair, and polished concrete floors, giving it an industrial touch. Sliding glass doors offer natural light, while an orange modern painting adds a pop of color.
Instead of springing for a built-in island, consider a freestanding one made from recycled materials. Case in point: the Industrial Recycled High Bench Table, shown in Shabby Chic White, $1,999, designed by Will Marx for GHIFY. Handmade in Brisbane, Australia, of native Australian timber, the design was inspired by the architecture of Queensland. Says GHIFY, “This island is one of our signature designs, which has been hugely popular as a kitchen island for added counter space, as a high bench dining table for the eat-in kitchen and as a workbench/desk. It is a timeless industrial recycled styled table that can be custom-built to any size, color or finish. Each table comes with a 10-year warranty.”
