Industrial Chic

With the explosion of open concept design and the interplay of rustic and modern minimalist aesthetics, we’re seeing a design fascination with mixed materials. Clients love combining custom metalwork with reclaimed wood, some go to great lengths to seek out vintage metal cabinetry and hardware, and the unfinished look of concrete with the natural texture of wood is very popular. 

The Dovetail shop works with Toronto metal specialists to create custom pieces that fit any industrial aesthetic – whether the desired look is seamlessly soldered steel for a slick modern look, or a more bolted / rivetted approach to metal joinery circa WWI.

Toronto also has a wealth of salvage stores where vintage details can be found to further personalize your piece, from old bolts and hinges, to vintage mirror and glass.
