Industrial tables are tables that were used in industrial applications, such as in factories, and re-purposed to be used in homes as dining room tables. Some of the industrial tables available on the market come as new tables that have been aged and conditioned to look like they came from an industrial setting. There are a number of retailers that sell original industrial tables or newer more modern industrial tables such as Urban Remains, Vintage Industrial and Get Back Inc.
Urban Remains sells tables that were actually used in industrial settings. Many of its tables come from the 1920s and '30s. The tables have been restored so that they will stand up to the everyday use that most kitchen tables get. Along with tables, the company sells table legs and smaller tables. The legs allow homeowners to make their own table or spice up their current table. Changing out legs or finishes can make a room look like it has had a makeover with little effort.
Vintage Industrial creates pieces that look like they came from the height of the industrial factory age, but they are made new to order. Customers can have their tables customized and changed as desired to fit their needs while still getting that industrial look they want. Get Back Inc. uses a mixture of old pieces with new to make original tables. The company is well known for its swing-out seats that can be attached to table bases and eliminate the need for chairs to take up space.
