That is a pretty incredible table. If you keep your eyes peeled you can find items like that for pennies on the dollar compared to their prices.

I picked up 6 of these for $10 a piece. I see them posted on similar sites (to the one you posted) for hundreds as coffee tables. In fact, a guy came to look at some Ford parts last year and his wife (whom thought she could get one over on me) tried to trade a few wood pallets for one so she could have a coffee table. I saw her eyes light up and the BS started flowing.

From what I've read that's not an inventory, they're making reproductions. Very cool!

That's absolutely beautiful! Granted, with them starting at $14.3k, they're likely only destined for hipster lofts in SoHo!

I love the style of the stuff on that site (and others), but I can't believe the outrageous prices they want for it all. We're doing a little bit of modern industrial stuff upstairs over the garage, some of it inspired from that site

Gorgeous! Would love a work bench like that, but at that price I wouldn't allow food on it. I'll stick with home made benches that I don't feel bad about making a mess on. Would love to have it though.

You can thank HGTV for that kind-of price tag. Industrial never entered a hipsters mind until they saw it on the tube.

Isn't that the truth! I really love the look, but I would have to rob a bank to get that stuff!

I love the looks and styling of vintage industrial, and these pieces are no exception. But WAY over priced, you could build it for waay cheaper.

I Actually started building some modern industrial furniture and love the looks, and the price.

Forget the garage, I would use that for a dining room table. That is if I could afford it

As I understand it, very little of what they have is actually vintage, but rather new re-creations inspired by vintage industrial objects.

The finished pieces are one-off or limited production handmade items.

In that context, their pricing is in line.

Their rivet details are actual hard rivets, not carriage bolts.

Even duplicating their simple looking 308 shelf, price out the pipe flanges and pipe. That basic hardware is expensive.

Just a viewpoint from someone that has actually done some work to reimagine some of their work and priced out materials.

Yeah, their "vintage" casters seem to be a bit suspect, but have you priced out new USA made casters? Or even true vintage ones?

Unless you find the stash of true vintage casters, the ones for sale are pricey too.
