Industrial Steel Tables Take On Modern Elegance

It’s hard to imagine how something as cold as a stainless steel table can transform the home into a marvelous living space. But, it can be done! If you are doubtful about this classic element, then let me show you exactly what you can do to make a shift from ordinary to extraordinary.

We’ve covered just about every table style, ranging from contemporary to sustainable. Today’s post about stainless steel tables is going to be the icing on the cake, the cherry on top, the creme de la creme… you get my point.

Classic Minimalism

The one downer about reflective stainless steel tables is that oily fingerprints can smudge the surface, something you never have to worry about if you go the other direction, which can either be frosty or matte. For a worn-down look, go for tables like the one above. It’s easy to wipe up and fits well with any occasion.

A Stainless Table For the Office

If you think stainless tables are only found in the backyard or in the kitchen, then you are very wrong! They can be perfect elements in the living room, in the bedroom, and my favorite, in the home office. I’m not sure why stainless steel encourages my work ethic–maybe it’s the sleek aesthetic or the cold sensation as I glide my hand across the surface…. who knows! Can you relate?
