I've always been a fan of industrial furnishings, like this vintage peg leg cart, but use too much of them and your home starts to look like a factory. The Wisteria Aluminum Side Table ($165) has an urban, industrial edge, but its polished aluminum makes it a bit more contemporary, and appropriate for my oh-so-avant-garde digs. I think pairing it with natural materials, like the stones here, can even make it work in a more traditional interior. And, its light-reflecting finish will make any space seem larger. What do you think?
