When it comes to kitchens, function and style go hand in hand. We love this sleek, industrial kitchen that is chock full of essentials that adjust to its day-to-day activities.
Industrial furnishings like Barn Light Electric’s Urbanization Factory Utility Cart and the Industrial Factory Backless Stool are ideal for busy kitchen and dining spaces. Utility carts like this one offer the convenience of an island while they easily move from one room to the next.
In monochromatic spaces like this one, you must consider quality products to make the space look inspired. Lighting fixtures like the Wilcox Studio Light provide ample lighting and a touch of American craftsmanship. Dark Walnut Wood Flooring may appear rich and opulent, but its dense planks withstand the toughest of treatments. It’s important to balance out your industrial furnishings with softer accessories. Playing with textures like burlap, tin, as well as fresh fruits and plants give extra life to the space.
Accessories like the Milk Tin Wall Clock and the Red Wren Tea Towels are great examples of adding personality through ornamentation. Using porcelain china like this Organic Shaped Dinnerware Set-Metallic Rimmed would make for great conversation. Not only would your guests remark on your great taste, buy you could always brag about your coordinating porcelain enamel lighting!

Those with modern tastes would love this bright kitchen with its stainless appliances and sleek white cabinets unencumbered by any sort of handle or decoration. If the entire space were this bright and slick, it might take on an almost sterile look but the warm wood flooring, the old exposed brick wall in the adjoining hallway, and the simple wood counter all help soften the space and give it a more inviting feeling. The touch of industrial decor is another bonus — these backless stools tucked underneath the counter look very much like our Industrial Factory Backless Stool. The backless stools are a great choice here as they can be pushed underneath the bar when not in use freeing up floor space and leaving the walkway open for traffic flow.
Our Industrial Factory stools take their design cues straight from the Machine Age of the early 20th century when American steel production went into high gear between the two world wars. Furniture took on a sleek, efficient look and this type of stool was often found in bustling factories and warehouses. Their timeless design is perfect for homes such as this one or for commercial businesses trying to capture an industrial vibe with their decor.
The sturdy vintage stools are crafted entirely from steel and feature a fixed, solid black walnut seat. Choose the classic Black or Galvanized finish for a rustic look to complement a farmhouse or traditional home, or choose the Barn Red for a more retro feel in your urban loft.
The American-made Industrial Factory Stool is also available in a backed version that features the same solid black walnut seat but with a swivel design. The backed stools would make a delightful addition to a local pub, a restaurant with tall tables, for the workshop in the garage, or for the man cave downstairs!

When we celebrated our fourth year in business just over a week ago — check out the birthday blog — we promised another exciting year of new products and great design ideas. Well, it didn’t take long! Barn Light Electric is proud to present our newest offering in our Industrial Decor Collection — the Industrial Factory Stool! Straight from the Machine Age of the early 20th century, our Industrial Factory Stools embody a timeless design. In the 1930s and 40s, when American steel production went into high gear, furniture took on a sleek, efficient look. These sturdy industrial stools, crafted from the finest materials available at the time, were often found in laboratories and factories and even in schools. Today, these stools, offered in both a backed and backless design, will complement almost any home style from a country cottage to an urban loft.
Manufactured exclusively for Barn Light Electric by MAKR Carry Goods, these vintage industrial stools are crafted entirely from steel with updated proportions and can be customized to suit your style. Try the classic black finish or the rustic galvanized for a traditional look or try our bold barn red for a fresher, updated feel. These finish colors are available only at Barn Light Electric!
Stools are a great option for a home or office because of their size and portability. It’s easy to grab a stool and move it to where you need it at the moment. The fixed seat on the backless design measures 13″ across and is crafted from solid black walnut. At 28″ high, this stool would tuck neatly out of the way underneath the kitchen island bar or by a work station when not in use. The backed design also measures 28″ from the floor to the seat and is just over 37″ high overall. The backed seat is a swivel model and is made from the same solid black walnut as the backless design.
Celebrate a classic American time period with a genuine, American-made vintage industrial stool for your space!
