If all trends end in excess, then it might come as a surprise to see interior trends evolving from just that. Excess of materials, that is. Old industrial boom towns of the early 20th century are now gold mines for decorators in search of steel and reclaimed wood furniture.
Here in northeast Ohio, I've been pretty lucky finding rad industrial pieces on the cheap (and even for free!) at local manufacturing plant liquidations, Craigslist, and especially thrift stores like the Habitat ReStore. But for those of you who have trouble nailing down the perfect thrifty score, I've rounded up some inspiration and retail sources for your industrial shopping pleasure.
