Industrial design can be summed up in three words - raw, utilitarian and structural. This style of furniture is most often made from salvaged wood, metals and other materials often used in manufacturing. Industrial furniture is casual yet bold, simplistic and yet still individual. It is all about celebrating the construction of a design.
Our industrial furniture collections are made from materials with a rich history. Reclaimed, repurposed, and crafted into sleek designs which will transform your home. Whether you’re after a bookcase made from old railway tracks or a coffee table on banded iron wheels, we’ve got the perfect piece of furniture for you.

Industrial style began in the 1970s in New York, when people starting converting old warehouses into apartments and living spaces. Rather than covering up or ripping out these industrial interiors with exposed beams and unpainted brickwork, homeowners incorporated these unique features into their new homes, and the utilitarian style was born. Since then, industrial design has evolved to incorporate furniture, art and appliances.
At Oak Furniture Solutions we’ve carefully selected our Industrial style furniture ranges for their uniqueness, expert construction and sleek design.
Our Manhattan Loft range is made from reclaimed hardwood and metal salvaged from old boats, railways and abandoned houses, making each piece of furniture completely unique. This range is sleek, modern and yet still has a rich sense of history.
Similarly, the Staten Island range is made from upcycled hardwood and banded iron. Each piece of furniture in this small collection has been picked for its bold and uncompromising design. The contrast between the geometric steal frames and charismatic wood make this collection particularly striking and unique.
The Roadie Chic collection is a hand built and contemporary range of furniture filled with individual designs inspired by being on tour with your favourite band. Reinforced aluminium edges and chunky lockable wheels make this collection stylish, durable and easy to manoeuvre, perfect for any wannabe rockstar.
Industrial style is all about showcasing what your home is made from: the wood, the bricks, and the support beams. Strip back your rooms to the bare essentials to recreate the sense of open space found in the loft apartments of Manhattan. Don’t be afraid to leave walls unpainted and floors uncarpeted.
Use a mix of carefully selected reclaimed and modern furnishings and fixtures around your home. Avoid visible clutter, and stick to neutral tones such as greys and browns.
