Over the last decade Industrial antiques of all kinds have become the must have furnishing accessory. Most are from the 19th and 20th Century. From old steel lockers and oversized butcher’s blocks to quirky signs and old mill containers or tools, there is plenty to love about old Industrial items. These were not pretentious items created to impress your neighbours, but instead solidly built functional pieces intended for your work. Over time most have acquired a wear and patina we love, and that wear only proves how useful and resilient these pieces really were.
When it comes to using antique and vintage industrial items it is always best to mix them up with more traditional and ornate pieces as well as sometimes repurpose items in ways they were never originally intended to be used. Let the contrast of this raw simplicity of the industrial melt with the far more lavish traditional domestic pieces to create a unique and characterful setting.
At Love Antiques we have a great selection of antique and vintage industrial pieces for sale.
