5 Swoon Worthy Industrial Inspired Dining Rooms
You may have noticed we introduced a range of dining room chairs a few weeks ago and it got us thinking about the peak entertaining season just around the corner. Time to share some of our favourite industrial-inspired dining rooms, from inspiring places to entertain to unusual and innovative renovations.

Starting with this stunning Victorian house in West Michigan, belonging to creative blogger, Miranda Schroeder. With a blend of modern and vintage pieces throughout the house, this renovation has retained all the Victorian qualities the house has, while adding a modern twist. Choosing to paint the dining space in black was a bold move, but the white panelling and woodwork stops the room from feeling too closed in. We love the hairpin legs on the dining table and the retro metal dining chairs are the perfect industrial addition.

We’re already huge fans of interior design blogger and stylist, Kerry Lockwood (read our interview with Kerry here right here), so it was only right we shared her gorgeous dining area in her rental home – yes you read that right, this place is a rental which Kerry has put her stamp firmly on. There’s a real Scandi-hygge moment going on here with the textured throws adding comfort to the chairs, candlelight burning away and the soft dove grey on the walls.

Trust interior design company Studio McGee to present us with a super modern, chic but industrial-inspired dining space to whet our appetites. This space proves that you don’t have to go dark, or too heavily cluttered in your styling when planning your industrial dining room refresh – these chairs alone do the talking in this room and it’s such a stylish juxtaposition to have these canvas and metal designs team with a concrete base and marble top table.

This house is actually a clever renovation of a garage in the heart of Amsterdam, blending the character of the building that once was, and modern industrial elements. The crittall glass front provides ample light, while the polished concrete flooring makes the room appear larger than it is. We absolutely love the overhead pendant lighting in the dining and kitchen area – it feels like these lights have always been here while the mechanics that once ran this garage made their way through mountains of paperwork. To get a similar mismatched look to your dining room, why not combine our industrial brass wire chairs with our machine shop stools.

Another example of styling mismatched chairs perfectly is this space we found when browsing Milk Decoration. This image is in fact taken from the hugely successful book Vintage Industrial: Living With Design Icons, and we love the traditional industrial feel to the room – from the exposed brickwork to the iron beams, to the designer's table with portable wheels. The pop of blue adds a much-needed boost of colour while the central lamp adds a modern touch without losing the character of the room.Which of these industrial dining rooms is your favourite?
