Raw, distressed, urban: Why choose an industrial bookcase
Featuring an industrial bookcase in your study, living room, or office is a bold move. This style started when 19th and 20th century warehouses and factories were renovated in the late 2000s. Designers and architects were inspired by the exposed brick walls, metal pipework, and weathered wood. Instead of hiding these characteristics, they enhanced the raw beauty of the stripped-back minimal look. Browse the selection of industrial style bookcases and standing shelves at vidaXL to bring this design into your home.
Minimal and modern
The advantage of an industrial bookcase is that it's so easy to style. The aesthetic is defined by neutral tones and an uncomplicated design. Industrial bookcases have an iron or steel frame and solid wood cabinets or shelving. The wood is raw and usually unpainted but instead polished and varnished for an authentic warehouse feel. As the design is minimal and modern, it is so versatile in homes and offices.
Simple colour palette
By using the natural colours of wood and metal, the colour palette is simple and understated. Pale and golden browns, silver, copper, and brass are colours you will see with this style of industrial bookcase. Powder-coated iron frames will offer a black tone, and painted metal frames are available in white. An industrial bookcase looks best when placed in an open-plan room, white painted or exposed brick walls, and wooden flooring.
Buying furniture made of natural materials is always better for the planet. When picking your industrial bookcase from vidaXL, you have the option to choose from beautiful raw mango wood, spruce, sheesham, acacia, or reclaimed wood. Reclaimed wood recycles solid boards and planks that come from buildings or construction sites. They have a gorgeous weathered and aged appeal that will stand out in your home.
