Industrial rawness.
One of the most interesting aspects of old foundry patterns…the identification numbers.
This piece came from a manufacturing plant in Norwalk, Connecticut.
Layers of contrasting textures and colors add a focal point within the room.
BEFORE WAXING AND ATTACHING THE GLASS. 
I find it fascinating that old foundry patterns were handmade with such precision. 
Industrial rawness.

It fits perfectly into the ambiance of your home, as does everything else that you create, find or repurpose. Once again a fantastic find that fits your style and your ability to bring different elements together to make a cohesive design. This is so YOU!
