You can’t have failed to notice the rise of industrial inspired furniture cropping up in stores and online. You may even have seen covetable (is that a word?) pieces in those uber stylish homes in magazines. I’m talking about the type of utilitarian furniture that would have been used originally in factories, offices and even laboratories. Being most often made of metal, wood or concrete, these pieces are hard-wearing, sturdy, infinitely practical, and so on-trend it hurts. Much more stylish than modern flat-pack solutions for the home’s many storage problems I have to say.

Take a Look
Traditional Apothecary Style Drawer Unit, Rockett St George
A place for everything and everything in it’s place. You’ll always be able to find those useful little things, from safety pins, to pens, to bottles of gin in a great multitasker like this. The richly textured wood finish plus the aged brass cup handles look totally authentic and wouldn’t look out of place in the best rooms in the house. Hell, you could even label those drawers, and cupboards!
Dutchbone – Barber Wall Mounted Shelf, Cuckooland
Great for adding storage without losing any floor space this wall shelf from Dutchbone would look fabulous in a bathroom for storing toiletries or in the kitchen for your favourite recipe books. Finished in white, it has been given a distressed and rusty look that is sure to bring an industrial but also vintage feel to your home. And as with all industrial style items it looks even better with added plants.
Industrial-Style Bureau Sideboard Storage Cabinet & Desk, Rockett St George
This is such a versatile piece with plenty of space for storage, and it benefits from a multi-purpose cabinet door that can either be used to hide away any mess inside or opened up to provide the perfect perch for your laptop. Pop it in the corner of the kitchen for internet browsing whilst cooking the dinner, or under the stairs for a quiet place to work.
Coming Soon, Rockett St George
The kitchen in the obvious place to add some antique brass utility accessories but these are so beautiful they could go anywhere. They both provide industrial style with a touch of luxury and are perfect for displaying your most decorative objects or simply the things you use the most.
Industrial-Style Filing Drawer Storage Cabinet, Rockett St George
Pairing a rustic distressed metal finish with a grand total of 30 storage drawers, this cabinet is designed to be filled with everything from keys and important papers to treasured finds and family photos. It would work in any room in the house and brings chic urban office vibes to the home!
Mace Metal Window Frame Wall Mirror, Cult Furniture
Industrial inspired accessories are a great way to add the look to an interior without necessarily adding furniture. And mirrors and lighting are often to be found in this style. This mirror is perfect for livening up an empty hallway, adding above a sideboard or console table and would look just at home in a bar or restaurant.
