Are you looking for modern industrial design inspiration for your home or office?

Have you thought about new ways in which you can modernise your workspace?
The trend at the moment is for the industrial design furniture so we thought we’d give you a helping hand by coming up with some suggestions, that are easy to do, and don’t have to cost the earth.

Here’s an example of how James Kemp, one of our customers, bought tube clamping to create a trendy desk at exactly the right dimensions for his room, with beautiful matching shelves.


And below is a picture from S & L Flowers in Chichester who created an eye catching shelving display in their shop.


Take a look at the shelves that were made on the DIY SOS programme for a teenage boy who wanted something stylish yet functional for his bedroom.

Industrial Design Ideas for your Kitchen

Are you thinking of creating the urban industrial kitchen design look for your home? Urban industrial décor is all the rage at the moment. Do you need some ideas?

With loft living becoming increasingly trendy, and interior designers being encouraged to make the most of the unused space, bare brickwork and steel piping has become popular with cool and trendy retailers and homes. Bars and restaurants are exposing brickwork and metal pipes, and people are paying huge amounts of money for chick and stylish kitchens with revealed pipework and lots of re-cycled timber.

There’s an easy and affordable way that you can create this look for your own kitchen, by using some of our products, so why not get your creative juices flowing and see what you can create?

You’ll get so much more satisfaction from making it yourself and it’s as easy as pie.

Some ideas that we’ve pulled together
