If you are looking for pieces that are significantly rough around the edges, check out Urban Remains. This messy but charming hole-in-the-wall salvage shop in West Town has a great selection of any—and everything you can imagine ever coming out of a factory circa 1940. Stools, tables, lamps—all with great patina. Come on, grunge things up a little. The mixing of clean and contemporary (or even polished and more traditional), with anything old, rusty, and metal is a trend that’s not going away soon.
