My main interest is mid century modern however I find myself being drawn to industrial chic. I saw this dynamite drafters table and am thinking about using it as a coffee table and mixing it with mid century modern.

Looks more like Steampunk to me.
I do like it.
And, I like MCM.
Go for it.

I love MCM but I think if you have too much of it, it looks like a set piece rather than a home. In my new home, I'm mixing MCM and modern and antiques that I already own, and so far I am absolutely loving how it's turning out.

I think that's a great table and if you love it, go for it!

Had to google steampunk as I have never heard that term. Yes you could say that table is steampunk style. Would you also use the term industrial chic to describe it.

I'd love to see a picture if you don't mind. I kinda want to get an idea what the different styles you have in your home look combined.

Hey thanks! I went online and those vintage drafters tables go for upwards of $1200. I paid $600 for it so I got a good deal. I'm going to use it in. VRBO rental so I think it's appropriate. Pretty hard to damage.
