Kirkby Freestanding Shelving made with Reclaimed Scaffolding Boards, Copper Pipe and Adjustable Dark Steel Fittings

Bespoke urban freestanding shelving unit

Kirkby Freestanding Shelving made with Reclaimed Scaffolding Boards, Copper Pipe and Adjustable Dark Steel Fittings – 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 one shown here is 2050mm high x 370mm deep x 1050mm wide…

The pipe is 1.2mm thick walled copper and is 28mm in diameter… this is not regular plumbers’ pipe – it is 50% thicker and stronger…

We used this lovely mixture of copper pipe and dark steel adjustable fittings in this unit, but the sky’s the limit… these shelves can be made with any combination of pipe and fitting finish and any diameter of pipe and any finish on the boards…. 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… we can source anything and gladly will !

The scaffolding boards pictured in this example were simply brushed down so they retained a gritty raw look and then stained with a chestnut oil, but anything you choose to use can be distressed or polished up to create any required finish….

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 my 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 myself from raw materials in my own workshop here in Manchester…

… 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 !

All systems will come with detailed installation and build instructions… they are amazingly easy to put together and install… you just need a regular DIYer drill and suitable fixings for the wall they are to be mounted on… or neither of these if you choose a freestanding option… it’s just a case of screwing components together in the right order.
