A Good Set of Pipes
Watermark Designs’ new Elan Vital faucet combines modern technology—a 1.5-gallon-per-minute aerator—with the utilitarian aesthetic of centuries-ago industrial steam pipes. Solid, aged brass is accented with intricate knurled metal, and engraved hot and cold levers also channel the past. Reminiscent of a Tinker Toy, you get to design every facet of your faucet. Priced from $1,284. Totally worth the trip to the Plumbing Place, Sarasota.
Industrial with a touch of rustic is the right-now trend, perfectly epitomized in the Rockwell Collection’s cart café table, combining refurbished materials like steel, cast iron, cogs, and footings from old factories and warehouses. $1,386 at Peach Tree Designs, Naples.
The Light Fantastic
Hudson Valley’s Machine Age Vestal combines a black textured iron cage frame with perforated metal shades for the ultimate play on light. $2,097 at local Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting locations.
A Scene Steel-er
Stainless steel practically screams “industrial,” especially in the modern kitchen. The metal jumps from appliances to the powder-coated pipes wrapped around the pedestal of the Aria, a table for six with a generous solid wood veneer top edged in stainless and a round base combining polished and brushed powder-coated stainless steel. $3,999 at Denmark Interiors, Fort Myers and Naples.
Stone Forest’s pedestal stand is blatantly industrial, what with the theme spelled out in its name—as in industrial pedestal stand. Totally no-frills utilitarian and a bit on the rustic side, the trestle stand is fashioned from cast iron. Sinks are available in stainless steel, copper/stainless, and antique dark or light recycled copper. $1,950 at Ferguson locations.
