How to achieve an Industrial office space

Creating an office interior often means choosing from furniture and pieces that are, at best, bland but functional. The industrial style looks set to change all that. With new collections specifically for the office, including the stunning Aviator Keeler Desk Wing maverick Modish are here to bring you industrial style that will make a real impression on your office space.

What is the Industrial-Inspired Style?

The industrial style means mixing raw materials – exposed brick walls, naked steel beams – with the warmth of natural materials – the cool elegance of leather and the warmth of wood. But to add the industrial edge, mix it with well-known materials that with additional processes look stunning – like polished concrete worktops or desk tops.

Impressions Start in Reception

No matter who is visiting – customers, interview candidates or other stakeholders – creating the right impression is key. And that means reception or front of house needs to be styled too. Our bespoke leather chairs are the ideal seating solution for reception and social areas of the office too.

They can be customised with leather in the colour of your choice, so you can be as daring or subtle as you want. Alternatively, why not sink into a comfortable yet stylish armchair from our Heritage collection?

Social Areas

There is research that shows office spaces that have a mix of spaces – ‘formal’ working areas, social areas etc. – have a staff team that works collaboratively. As well as bespoke leather chairs, opt for industrial styled coffee tables. This concrete-topped coffee table is the perfect combination of industrial inspired materials.

Style Out the Boardroom

The boardroom is the place where deals are struck, and debates and discussions are held. There is no reason why it can’t be stylish but it needs to be comfortable too – we all know how long meetings can go on for. The industrial boardroom table is the ideal addition – strong, robust and delightfully stylish, it is the main focal point of your boardroom space. Match it with comfortable seating for maximum effect.

And, ergonomic and bespoke desks are also a fantastic way to add character to an office space too.

Storage Solutions (Not a Filing cabinet in Sight)

The business landscape has changed so much. The digital age means that paper is no longer needed to be stored in such vast quantities as it once was. The filing cabinet may soon be defunct and replacing it with reclaimed wood shelving is a stylish addition to any room or unit within your company.

Lighting – Functional and Stylish

We have a growing range of industrial-style inspired items in the Heritage collection garnering favour with business customers. As you recline on the studio drum leather chairs or enjoy the curves of the Maverick collection, bask in the stylish, industrial style lighting too.

We love the minimal look of the Indiana pendant light that cast a warm glow but plenty of luminosity without being stark.
