Handmade vintage industrial office desks for Now

Customers words about ordering their handmade vintage industrial office desks from us.

“Being a creative type I was appointed ‘chief of interiors’ for our new office. In my head I wanted a loft style work space with vintage furniture and reclaimed wood tables.

A kind of ‘homely’ place where people would feel comfortable at work. I searched around the internet for some reference and found some furniture that matched my ideas. A lot of the stuff I liked was from The US.

After some more web searching I then stumbled upon Steel Vintage who had some examples of reclaimed wood tables on their website close to what I had in mind.

I had no idea how much these tables would cost and how long they would take to make so I decided to take a trip down to Bristol where Steel Vintage are based to talk my ideas through with the guys there. Jon listened to what we wanted and I showed him my reference so that he would get the look we were after. Jon got what we wanted instantly and showed us some of the tables he had made for other clients. There are a lot of companies out there selling furniture made from reclaimed wood but a lot of them don’t get the design bit right in my opinion. Steel Vintage get the design aesthetic that we were after, which was very important for us.

After talking to Jon about the plans for our company Jon suggested we should think about a modular approach to our tables so that we could add to them and re configure our office when new people join. We thought this was a great idea. We hadn’t really thought about it before.

Jon explained all the different permutations regarding wood and finish and gave me some wood samples to take back to London to share with the partners at work and we decided on the finish we liked. We went for distressed solid Oak.

We commissioned two tables big enough for six people to sit around and five four seater tables. We had a budget and Jon was able to produce the tables, deliver and install them within our budget. Jon kept us updated throughout the process of the status of our tables and was very helpful in explaining the process.

After not being able to find a table big enough for our boardroom we decided to ask Steel vintage to come up with some designs for a table big enough for 12 people to sit around. The shape of our boardroom required it to be long and narrow. The guys at Steel Vintage quickly showed us some different designs and we settled on a very simple but elegant boardroom table. Everyone comments on it. It’s a real statement piece.

I would highly recommend Steel Vintage as they have bent over backwards to deliver us quality tables exactly how I had imagined them. They totally understood the look we were after and were a joy to work with.

We are just about to commission some more tables off them as our company is growing fast. Which is good.”
