Utilitarian chic with industrial wall shelves

The industrial trend became huge in the mid-20th century when disused factories in the USA and UK were turned into living spaces. Roll-on open-plan living characterised by stripped-back chic, with untreated walls, old metal cabinets and exposed brickwork as common features. Materials were mixed and matched and looking rough around the edges was very much aimed for. When it comes to industrial shelving in this coveted style, think wood, wood and more wood, slim metal poles and wire lockers. Metal industrial wall shelves climb high up walls to resemble scaffolding that clings to buildings. All-wooden industrial shelves instantly bring underground wine cellars, pantries and old corner shops to mind. What will you go for? To find your joy, simply use the filters on our page to hone down the search.

Turning old into new

Industrial style is inspired by the factories and open-plan workshops of yesteryear – picture raw, untreated materials such as unpolished wood, exposed metal, wiring and brick and you’re on the right track. In our collection, you’ll find industrial-style shelving units created out of upcycled and repurposed materials such as reclaimed oak, steel and aluminium. How wonderful does it feel to know you’re saving it from landfill? After a designer piece? Browse teak and metal wonders by Robert Heal, a British designer who created Ladderax shelving in the 1960s. Love a splash of colour? Check out shelving courtesy of Dutchman Adriaan Dekker or look for shelving with painted wood sections.

Handy industrial shelf storage

Tools, magazines, maps and photos – our beautiful industrial shelving units provide plenty of space for your household bits and bobs. Many of these handy pieces also contain drawers and cabinets with doors, handy for stowing things away out of sight.

How to style industrial wall shelving units?

When creating your living space, try decorating shelving with candles, a striking clock alongside plants and books to suit your style. Dot the room with industrial floor lamps and stools to build a living area channelling that workmanship vibe. Why not place one of our cool industrial signs alongside metallic industrial shelving units to recreate a factory feel? Or team your shelving with a photo or drawing from our wall art collection for a slightly softer look.

A perfect place for books
