Industrial Urban Furniture and Accessories

Reclaimed Scaffolding Boards and Steel Pipe Shelving/Bookcase - Its salvaged vintage industrial design works perfectly in a sophisticated, casual living space.

This shelving system can be made to measure to your own specifications. The shelves pictured here are 262cm wide, 470cm tall and 50cm deep... but the sky's the limit... these shelves could easily be made to be freestanding (but for a unit of this massive size it would need to be really securely bolted to the floor and you would definitely need to consult with a builder to install them!!)... to make them freestanding I would simply replace the top section with horizontal pipes running between the vertical pipes, attached with another elbow bracket (so the back section looks the same as the front section... and I would definitely advise that the front vertical supports extended all the way down to the floor!

I designed and made this unit for a customer who lives in a converted chapel - it took us a few weeks of communication to hone and perfect the design (construction, materials and finish)... and the effort was certainly worth it... it's just stunning... it hardly impinges on their room space at all... just 28cm deep in the lower section and yet creates a phenomenal amount of storage and is a stunning feature to boot ! The customer is going to use vintage apple crates to store his belongings in placed on the upper shelves and have books on the lower single plank deep shelves... he's promised to send pictures once he's all sorted and I will of course upload these as soon as I get them... I can't wait !!

... the piping can be painted.... scaffolding boards could be substituted for reclaimed floor boards, chunky reclaimed timber of any type, toughened glass, sheet metal, wire grills, railway sleepers... whatever you would like... I can source anything and gladly will !

The scaffolding boards pictured in this example were simply brushed down and white washed so they retained a gritty raw look but light and more refined looking, but anything you choose to use can be distressed or polished up to create any required finish.... have a look at my other listings for ideas and dream up and suggest anything that comes into your head... I love a challenge !

There are no limits to the height, depth or width I can accommodate... depending on the type of steel you choose the options can be fully adjustable to your needs as they change... and the best bit... it's not too expensive... most of the cost is front loaded in terms of my time and all the to-ing and fro-ing getting things organised... the larger the project, the better value it seems, so don't be afraid of scale... this is the utter beauty of this system !
Please contact me to discuss any ideas or obtain quotes.

All systems come with detailed installation and build instructions... they are amazingly easy to put together and install... generally you just need a regular DIYer drill and suitable fixings for the wall they are to be mounted on (but of course for a unit this size you shouldn't attempt to install them yourself, please, please get a builder to do it - if this weren't installed properly and fell it could kill, not to mention damage your floorboards!!),,,,
