Industrial style is here to stay, whether it be at home, in a cafe or restaurant, hotel or bar, or office space!
When vintage industrial pieces are added, it immediately brings personality and character to an environment, as these are usually unique, one-off statement pieces, that are sure to be a conversation starter.
Wood, metal and concrete are the three key materials, that will help give a space an industrial feel.
The wood can be old, painted and distressed like this pair of vintage windows that have been repurposed with mirrors:
Or this amazing old Fruit Drying Rack, sourced from France, which would provide ample storage space in a bedroom, bathroom or kitchen, or look really cool in a cafe or restaurant.
A combination of wood and metal work well together, like this old factory cart which has a reclaimed timber top and is perfect as an industrial style coffee table.
Or these vintage locker room benches, from a school in Yorkshire, which would be ideal in an entryway, or warehouse home.
Our hero piece at the moment is this huge 3.4 metre vintage industrial table, with a hand made reclaimed timber top.
Ok, so you would definitely need a very large space for this piece, but what a statement it makes!
The cast iron pedestals were once used as bases for corn grinders made by Henry Bamford & Sons, who were established in 1885 and became one of the UK’s leading suppliers of agricultural and farming machinery.
This would be ideal in a retail environment for displaying merchandise, or as a communal table in a cafe or restaurant.
This piece is currently being used at a pop up event at Circus West Village at Battersea Power Station, by Warehouse Home, an essential resource for anyone with a love of industrial and warehouse living.
This is in conjunction with London Design Festival, which celebrates and promotes London as the design capital of the world, running at various venues throughout the city from 16-24 September.
Lighting is key in an industrial environment, whether it be wall lights, pendants or table/desk lamps.
This vintage Jielde Lamp is a design classic! It was originally designed in France in the 1950’s as a work lamp and is now an iconic French industrial piece.
We couldn’t resist this great looking vintage industrial pendant, where steel and brass have been cleverly used together.
Finally, we found this old vintage bottle drying rack on a trip to Provence and thought what an amazing hat/coat rack it would make for a restaurant, or at a home or workplace with an an industrial feel.
