If you are looking for a table to suit an urban‐industrial decor theme, don't go all‐out with a (heavy) metal table but consider a (lighter) wood table with some metal design features, such as the one pictured here. Plastic as an alternative to wood is light and can be molded into some cool shapes, but be aware that the color can fade over time.
