Crib some clever design tricks from the best urban spaces in New York City. Find out how to take the edgy looks you love in restaurants, hotels and stores and make them work at home.

Bar Stool Seating Robert Stolarik

City Style

AvroKO, the company responsible for Public's design, won two James Beard awards for its work there, and it's easy to see why. The exposed brick, industrial pendant lighting and Tolix stools make the restaurant's bar feel intimate and a little rustic.

The classic palette in this Rebekah Zaveloff design emphasizes white, which is a perfect backdrop to accentuate the industrial touches similar to Public, like the lighting and the French industrial counter stools. The elements from the bar easily transition to a home kitchen.

Taxidermy Restaurant Decor Robert Stolarik

City Style

Freemans restaurant serves simple, rustic food and the decor carries owners William Tigertt and Taavo Somer's theme to the next level. The space's abundance of taxidermy kicked off the \"hipster hunting lodge\" trend seen in so many imitators today.

Fun Accessories in Master Bedroom

The moose bust in this vignette by designer Brian Patrick Flynn may be faux, but the Freemans effect is similar. Anchored on a dark pinstripe-wool-draped wall, it conveys a tailored, masculine, Old World charm.

Hotel James Lobby Robert Stolarik

City Style

The neutral palette, honey-colored wood and unusual chandeliers keep things light in the Hotel James. Also keeping things light, literally? The giant floor-to-ceiling windows.

The Trend, Translated

Light wood, a unique chandelier and giant, unadorned windows make this dining room by Emily Henderson feel unfussy and organic, in the vein of the Hotel James.

Ace Hotel Bedroom Robert Stolarik

City Style

This Ace Hotel bedroom is cozy, yet uncluttered. The black wall behind the platform bed adds a subtle, stark interest to the space, and the task lighting makes everything feel utilitarian.

Built-In Bed Cabinetry

The Trend, Translated

This platform bed also stands out against the dark wall unit behind it. The exposed wood ceilings echo the herringbone wood floors of the Ace, and the metal floor lamp is reminiscent of the desk and bedside lamps in the hotel room. All that's missing is a plaid blanket.

Ace Hotel Sofas Robert Stolarik

City Style

White walls, gray sofas and a steamer trunk give this Ace Hotel room sitting area some serious vintage industrial style.

The Trend, Translated

The colors of the walls and sofas have been reversed, but the white-and-gray neutral palette is also at work in this room by Emily Henderson. The finishing touch? A steamer trunk, of course. (Bonus points for the antlers, a la Freemans, the industrial lighting and the metal fan.)

Liquor Bar Exterior Robert Stolarik

City Style

Nothing says \"industrial\" like subway tile. Much like its interior, the exterior of Schiller's Liquor Bar is awash in white subway tile, punctuated with antique-inspired sconces.

Brick Contemporary Kitchen Backsplash

The Trend, Translated

White subway tile in the home is made for the kitchen or bathroom. This kitchen by Randy Weinstein looks clean, but it doesn't feel too sterile or uninviting, thanks to the warm wood cabinetry. The industrial lights are definitely larger scale than Schiller's sconces, but they have vintage appeal all the same.

French Bistro-Esque Schiller's Liquor Bar Robert Stolarik

City Style

These Tolix-style metal chairs found in Schiller's Liquor Bar give the room the air of a casual French bistro. The more worn-in they look, the better.

Stackable Seating

The Trend, Translated

While the aged look of the metal works in the context of a restaurant, it's not for every home. These red, powder-coated, stackable versions have the same cool lines but provide a jolt of color and additional seating for guests, as needed.

New York City's Ace Hotel Lobby Bar Robert Stolarik

City Style

The Ace Hotel Lobby Bar is a haven for hotel guests as well as the happy hour crowd, thanks to its warm wood paneling, buttery leather chairs and, of course, the cocktails. The dim industrial lighting and vintage flag add to the feel of understated cool.

The Trend, Translated

Designer Emily Henderson proves this riot of texture, style and color is a winning combination at home, too. Once again, a large vintage flag is the focal point, balanced out by a tufted sofa and the warm tones of wood and leather.
