Industrial style furniture is inspired by the industrial age, which began in the late 18th century. It’s certainly a very unique type of furniture and it’s somewhat ironic that although it’s nowadays considered a very contemporary style, it’s heavily influenced by a bygone era dating back over the past two centuries.
The fact that it continues to be such a fashionable furniture choice is easy to understand. Wood and metal are combined to stunning contemporary effect, to create extremely hard-wearing and robust furniture. Every piece exudes charm and unique character, and is very much the anthesis of more traditional and popular furniture styles. It’s unashamedly ‘statement furniture’ and certainly no longer the domain of just cafes, restaurants and bars, as many are now choosing it for their dining room, kitchen, living room or bedroom.
‘Industrial chic’ also has very practical benefits. By its very nature, it’s utilitarian – solidly built and robust. This not only ensures you’ll have great looking furniture that will stand the test of time, but there’s also the added benefit that you can get away with the odd scratch or dent – after all, some slight distressing is often accepted as very much part of the look.
All of the above has resulted in an increasing number of homeowners falling for the charms of industrial. We offer a variety of industrial furniture ranges, each with their own distinctive style. Dining tables and chairs are certainly our most popular items, and this is partly due to the fact that some customers repurpose the dining tables and instead use them as office desks. Coffee tables, sideboards and bedside tables are also amongst our current bestsellers.
