High Style Low Budget Design - Restoration Hardware/Home Decorators

Salvaged factory cart coffee tables are everywhere.   Restoration Hardware has its own version of an early 1900s industrial factory cart that was once used to transport furniture, fabric and other supplies across the factory floor.  The cast iron wheels, bolts and plates are original and the North American solid white oak top has been cleaned and oil.  Each cart is a vintage original with variations in distressing, cracks, finish and wheel construction. 

Given it handmade and hand-finished, each item is unique.  No two are exactly alike and the result is a $1095 price tag!!!


Made to resemble a wheeled cart used in a old factory, Home Decorators' Holbrook Factory Cart Coffee Table is crafted of century-old reclaimed wood for a rustic, weathered look.  The base is made of iron with a rust-free coating.  this rustic table from the Holbrook Collection is similar in design and size to the more expensive Restoration Hardware cart.  

At the online outlet price of $391, it provides high end design on a low end budget.

Let me know what you think....


  1. I am a fan of those carts...The budget one looks great too!
