Residing on Long Island’s Noyack Bay is our featured industrial farmhouse today. Surrounded by solid walnut cabinetry and a 16 and 1/2 foot island, this kitchen is big and open, functional, and oh-so beautiful! House Beautiful even described the space as, “a dynamic blend of rustic and industrial…a vary American kitchen…and is easy on the eye.”
Characteristics for this contemporary take on industrial farmhouse design include the solid walnut cabinets mentioned above, partial marble counters, elm flooring and a backsplash that is hand troweled plaster designed to look like an old concrete wall.
Similar styled vintage pendant lights from Barn Light Electric hang above the prep area of the island. They have a beautiful deep bowl shade design that along with the nickel finish choice, bring modern life into an otherwise vintage lighting choice. You see, this style of light has been around for quite some time – since around the 1940′s and 50′s. It was only until recently when the industrial deigns started emerging, that this style of vintage pendant started popping up again on the design scene. The similar style we’d recommend is our new Massena Pendant. Both our pendant and that shown in the photos today have a unique neck design that bring more life into the designs than normal deep bowl lights. Their classic metallic finishes also play off the modern day appliances and faucets below for the all around cohesive look.
Across the room, the contemporary farmhouse theme is expanded upon. Popular retro style metal chairs were ordered in two different finishes to play off of the walnut cabinets and nickel furnishings – very clever! More woods were utilized by the addition of a large farmhouse table – perfect for big family gatherings whether during a family vacation or a holiday!
