A few weeks ago I was approached by an amazing company Chairish, to style one of their coffee tables way I wanted. Haha, challege accepted. Farmhouse industrial coffee table was on the menu. Creating a storyboard is almost one of my favorite things to do. I love bringing items together and creating something stylish and desirable.
As many of you know, I love me some farm house style. Their industrial style wood and metal coffee table was just the piece I wanted to start with. I started by souring through some of my favorite home decor shopping sites and was quickly able to find more than enough pieces to style with. Did I mention that this was so fun. Really, I am not even lying. I loooove doing this type of thing. Anyone that wants this done, you just come to me! I think the next best thing would be shopping and styling someones home for them. Now, that I cannot even imagine.
This is the coffee table I picked. It is a custom wood base with a metal top. The cross members on each side are such a nice accent and really personify that farmhouse style in my opinion.
So, I wanted to create a calm, farmhouse feel with a touch of industrial flair. I started by looking through Chairish.com. They have some really great products.
This was the first thing I came across. I love this. I need this for my house, or maybe ten. Once I find a few things that I will use as my base items I can move on to smaller supporting pieces. One other items crossed my path that I could not live without. This galvanized metal container was just the right amount of industrial style I needed.
Now to soften it up a bit and add some feminine touches.
I found this throw blanket at Target.com and the color and design is just right for what I wanted. My plan is to fold the blanket lengthwise, lay it across one side of the table and set my galvanized container on top. I love combining textures like this together.
I added some old french books, a few plants, some antique glass containers and some more modern white jars.
Each item is numbered and you can check out my list to see where it is all from. I know many of these things are in my shopping cart right now.
- Surya Mack Throw | Target
- French Wood Garden Trug | Chairish.com
- Six round decorative ceramic balls-blue | Target
- 1 Quart Mason Jars in bisque finish (also comes in 1 Pint) | Target
- Blooming Spring 26 Pussy Willow Spray-Cream | Joann.com
- Antique English Glass Bottles-0 Set of 6 | Chairish.com
- Industrial Steel Storage Drawer Bin | Chairish
- Boxwood Topiary | Target
- Vintage French Paperback Books | Chairish.com
I thought I would kind of draw up how I wanted to use these items. On the right side of the table I would drape folded blanket across. On top of the blanket I would place the french garden trug(2) and arrange my ceramic decorative balls(3) inside of it. On the left side of the table I would add the industrial steel storage drawer(7) I would arrange the collection of antique English bottles(6). To the right of the industrial storage container, I would place my vintage french paperback books(9) and set the faux boxwood topiary on top. I may aff a few of the paperbacks into the steel storage bin in case the stack is too high. It is nice to spread the love around. I would add the two bisque mason jars(4) just to the left of the throw and garden trug. adding a few of the blooming pussy willows(5) to the jars will add a little touch of spring, along with the boxwood plant.
Each of these items adds a unique element of interest. I love the combination of all of these items together. Man, I wish I had the actual table in my home. I could have so much fun with it. My goal for this styling was to achieve a balance for old world farmhouse with some more modern updated and industrial style finishes. Do you think I achieved that look?
I do think I need to have this, in my home, now.
