Made to order industrial furniture shelving unit

Scaffolding Board and White Powder Coated Pipe Multi Media and Shelving Unit incorporating Vintage Filing Cabinet Drawer Fronts – aka THE WOW WALL !!!

This has been one of the most fun projects we’ve worked on…. we were tasked to come up with a ‘wow wall’ for our client who wanted to cover her entire wall with shelves, cupboards and drawers… but she didn’t know exactly what she wanted it to look like… only that she would know what she liked when she saw it ! So we asked her to send us some photos of her flat so we could get an idea of her style… our client had an eclectic mix of mid century furniture in her flat so it was immediately obvious what needed to be done… vintage filing cabinets ! We’ve developed a great process for stripping and distressing old metal filing cabinets, and we’ve been longing to combine these with the reclaimed scaffolding boards and steel pipe constructions we are most well known for… this was going to be the perfect project…

As you can see from the photos, we used seven drawer fronts from vintage filing cabinets to create 3 new drawer fronts and 4 cupboard door fronts… we could only use the fronts of the drawers as the depth of this unit is much shallower than a standard filing cabinet… we left the original paint on 6 of the drawer front and just stripped and distressed one of them… we also incorporated an old vintage locker door into the design, as well as an old metal window frame which we glazed with wired fire safety glass… I hope you agree that the result is stunning… super unusual and totally unique !

The shelves were white washed – the pipes white powder coated and the fittings grey powder coated… the overall look is a subtle and almost monochrome… we love it !

This storage and shelving system pictured here is 4104mm wide x 2450mm tall x 465mm deep… but the sky’s the limit…

… Everything we do is made to order and because we design and make everything ourselves we can easily accommodate any design requirements you might have… just contact us for a chat… pretty much all of our listings are a result of other client’s requests so prices are indicative of a bespoke product – the price won’t dramatically increase because you want to add a few centimetres here or take a few centimetres away there – we’re not importing and selling hundreds of products of a particular size… We make everything ourselves from raw materials in our little workshop in an old Victorian hat factory in Manchester…

… The design process is really varied… but generally speaking it is done remotely as we have clients all over the world… thank goodness for technology ! With a combination of email, scanned sketches, technical spec drawings, skype, phone calls, emails and sending samples in the post we can achieve a totally fool proof bespoke design service… generally with the more complicated projects we do the install, but not always, as we didn’t in this case due to budget constraints – so we made our client and her fitter an installation video which you can see here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nsDYIghUMM

… we just love what we do and love to provide a great bespoke service… why buy off the shelf when there’s just no need to… we can create something totally unique for you !
