Updated Dining Room & Industrial Desk Lamps

Pin It

Here's the full shot of the dining room as it is currently.

The settee on one side, which makes this table an inviting space to sit and work. Paying bills doesn't seem like such a chore in such a comfy seat!

The salvaged vintage industrial chairs on the other side...I just love their simple lines and utilitarianism. The best part is that I can easily use the table for simple tasks, like folding laundry, without having to move the chairs out of the way. :)

I have to tell you a little about these lamps, too. They are Perry Industrial Style Desk Lamps from Ralph Lauren. They were TJMaxx finds at $80/piece, and a little research showed that they were originally $345 each. That's 77% off the original retail price! I hadn't expected that much of a deal. Thanks, TJMaxx!

I love the mixed metal finish...a combination of brushed steel and brushed brass finish. I've always been a person who mixes metals, wood finishes, etc...part of my authentic style, I guess. :) It all adds to the eclectic, industrial, and traditional touches I love.

Any great finds for you lately?
Any bargains? Anything that called to your authentic style?
