In today's market place you can find a plethora of reproduced chairs, desks, tables, storage units, lighting, and accessories inspired by the industrial era, but if you truly want an industrial look, try searching for original items that can be found in salvage yards, flea markets and junk shops, and re-purpose them, or use them as is to add a bit of character and drama to a space. Many of today's manufacturers are designing pieces that really bring back the industrial era and while some of these items are pricey, they are great for adding historical character in today's spaces.

Example, you do a lot of desk work and have one particular corner to accommodate desk, computer, supplies, etc. You may be lucky if you find sturdy ready-made pieces that will fit that corner and your work requirements get fulfilled.

Furniture Veneer, Inlay, Marquetry and Boulle: Their artistry fell into four main categories: veneers, strips of mahogany or walnut, waxed and polished to enrich their grain and colour; marquetry, patterns and pictorial designs built up from a variety of different woods; inlay, which achieved a similar effect using pieces of tortoiseshell, mother of pearl, ivory and ebony; and boulle, named after a French family of cabinet makers in the 17th and 18th centuries whose furniture was decorated with designs in brass, picked out in black pigment and filled in with inlay. The skills of these craftsmen linger on in many small individual firms. Many of these antique pieces fetch an unbelievably high price at auctions around the globe, especially if they are from sought after craftsmen from early Victorian periods.

Of these, resin-based synthetic rattan is of course the most popular, as well as the most widespread across public consciousness; however, unlike what many home-owners might think, not every rattan garden furniture item is made of the same type of synthetic polymer. Much to the contrary, rattan items on the market can be made out of any one of four types of resin: polyethylene, polypropylene, PVC or nylon.

The Victorians had a habit of replacing metal handles with round wooden knobs, often leaving the marks of the former back-plates showing. Sets of old handles can be picked up cheaply from antique and second-hand shops but make sure that the back-plates are large enough to cover any existing indentations.

Custom Made Furniture v/s Store Bought Furniture: Most people are often doubtful about the idea of getting custom made furniture for one very good reason: cost. It is often misunderstood that custom made furniture are expensive and have an ultra-high-end living which is totally not the concept. This should not be the deciding factor, as there can be many useful, better and practical benefits to custom furniture. A custom piece will solve certain problems that no ready-made equivalent can. Here are few points which states their difference:

In fact, rather than harm the environment, rattan can be considered to benefit it, insofar as it is used as a replacement for wood wicker in many furniture items. This, in turn, helps preserve forests, as it reduces the need to source wood from trees, preventing deforestation and logging. Furthermore, this plant is often grown in floodplains, thereby facilitating the appearance of animal populations in said areas and making use of soil which would, otherwise, go unused. Finally, rattan harvesting and sourcing helps provide jobs for inhabitants of the areas of the world the material is commonly found at, thus helping maintain a sustainable economy.

Choosing Industrial Furniture: While choosing industrial furniture keep in mind that the industrial era used materials that were bulky and heavy such as solid wood and steel. These pieces were made to last for years and took alot of wear and tear. You can still find some of these peices today. Their worn, weathered look gives them character and adds a bit of drama to any space. They may be covered in leather, heavy denim, linen, cotton ticking or wool. Besides wood and steel you may find pieces made of galvanized metal and iron with muted industrial paint and powder-coated finishes.

You should compare the prices and storage terms of various firms. Location, hours of operation and price are other important considerations to look for in self storage. Take a look at the storage units before you sign a contract. Call your insurance company to check for any policy on stored furniture.
