EVE Team Finds: Industrial Decor

Looking for a last minute holiday gift for the hard-to-buy-for friend? Consider a timeless piece of industrial decor! 

Made of materials that are built to last such as steel, chrome and iron, objects of this particular style convey a sense of history while maintaining a metropolitan look that blends well with today's modern decor.

Antique dress form, funretro
Casters and bells, What's New On the Mantle



Schools, libraries, offices and factories - places where we grew up and our ancestors worked. These are among the sites from where much industrial decor has been salvaged. These places give the pieces history and sentimentality despite the oftentimes hard & mechanical materials of which they're made.




Vintage school desk, 86 For the Home


Industrial table fan, Ani & Rose
Lucerne dairy crate, Mary Beth Hale


Water pump, Tangle and Fold


French fry cutter, Happy Swoon Vintage


Metal box & key, Wretched Shekels



Not all industrial pieces are salvaged antiques - many of today's newer handmade items are industrial-inspired and make unique gifts.

Bookends, Orange Door Cottage
Newsprint flask, The Hair of the Dog



Steampunk necklace, Professor Sprocket
