A casual look in kitchen design these days is the rustic industrial style. It combines the softer elements of natural woods and materials in rustic decor with the edgier elements of the industrial style. Warm natural woods combined with repurposed industrial accents are then topped off with a strong color, such as white.
Putting this look together means a fun search for items like cozy wooden chairs, industrial lighting, and maybe even some yard sale finds as accents. Here is a selection of pieces from Hooker Furniture and other sources that can help you achieve the rustic industrial look for yourself.
