Industrial style is all about making a feature of the rough, rejecting a tidy finish and instead allowing a space and the objects within it, to remain raw and ‘imperfect’. Pipes and brick walls are left exposed, whilst industrial products are turned into useful furniture and accessories. That's all very well if you live in a city loft or factory conversion but is it a style that can work in just one room in a home? At The Wooden Furniture Store, we think an industrial style home office is the perfect on-trend option. The look lends itself to home office schemes, where the simple and functional aesthetic translates into practical storage and less distracting decor. Hardworking materials, such as wood, metal and concrete, are key to the look, and can easily be incorporated in the form of desks,shelving and wall coverings. Here are our 6 key pieces of furniture to achieve an industrial inspired home office.
The perfect desks
Reclaimed wood can completely change the character of a room, adding a rustic charm to a space and making it more welcoming. Our Coastal Chic and Urban Elegance desks adds texture and interest without being distracting and the stand out pieces of both collections are the slimline, rustic desk.
Open shelf bookcases are a great storage solution for any home office, as they provide easy access to all your bits and bobs. For extra colour and interest our Urban Chic combines reclaimed wood from Southern India with a steel outer frame to give a stylish industrial edge.
Organisation is key in any home office. If you have the space, invest in purpose-built office storage, such as a dedicated Urban Elegance filing cabinet or storage cupboard to keep all your paperwork sorted.
