Taking 'industrial chic' that little bit further..

Though we may all be a little bit worn out by the past year of 'industrial chicness' I thought I'd share this rather unusual take on the style..

An old machine hall transformed into a kitchen / dining room.. including the original industrial hardware. The large artwork behind the dining suite is by Eric Poitevin and those two pendant lights by Marcel Wanders.

A section of the 700 square meter conversion is this kitchen, designed by Antonie Bertherat with a mix of designer pieces and IKEA (!)..

I think these original structural inclusions are just wonderful - an honest tribute to the history and origin of this old Swiss mountain factory.

The gigantic art piece by Ugo Rondinone is somewhat secondary to the stunning views through the panoramic window. What a view! As you know, I adore the mountains and I can only imagine the spectacular Winter performance as the snow falls thick and fast..!

Stunning space! I especially love the chaise/bench in front of the picture window. But, you're right, the view takes it hands down.

I wanted to let you know, too, I was thrilled to receive your comment on my blog. The photographs by Mikkel Vang were inspired and I am so glad you introduced me to his work. Have a lovely day, and keep up your beautiful blog-- it is a treat to visit!

Funny, I am also getting tired of too much industrial. I can take a lamp or a chair or two. But a whole room - I think I have seen too much.

The light in that last room is over the top fantastic. The room does not need any furnishings!

Hope you had a lovely weekend, sis!

Warm hugs to you,

I love me a little industrial touch in a room. The kitchen is a bit much for me, but this is a fantastic place! I love the fireplace and, like everyone, wowed by the large art, large window and view in the last photo!
