From Eco Bench Seating to Waste-Conscious Chairs

 - Jun 10, 2015
Industrial furniture is quite simply all the rage these days. Gone are the days when furniture had to either give off an old-school antique appearance or look overly sleek, polished and metallic. Industrial furniture is all about embracing the rugged, the asymmetrical and the imperfect.

Recycled, upcycled and salvaged materials often work well with industrial furniture simply because they fit in nicely with the ethos of such furniture. With less of a focus on the sleek and polished and a greater acceptance of beauty in imperfection, industrial furniture and eco-focused materials go together well.

Industrial furniture has the ability to lend spaces -- whether they are bedrooms, offices or public spaces -- a degree of rustic character whilst still being hip, making them a great option for a variety of physical environments.
