Industrial Design Storage For Your Office & Home

Steel Vintage Blog - Industrial Design Storage For Your Office & Home

When you think of industrial decor, you typically imagine a room with a rustic, utilitarian feel – an almost factory like aesthetic with bare brick walls and exposed pipes and ducts. The furniture has that classic blend of quality wood and steel, handcrafted with immaculate attention to detail and other traits of industrial furniture design you would expect.

The impressive tables and chairs are often seen as the focal point of the room, which is understandable when you can get such eye-catching designs like the Brunel and Steampunk. But the furniture piece you use for your storage needs can often be a cheap afterthought when it could actually be the finishing touch to the overall industrial decor that you have been missing.

Fortunately, Steel Vintage has a variety of industrial storage furniture to choose from including drawers, cabinets and much more. Let’s take a look and see how you can add some industrial style to your storage.


The Workshop Bookcase is an industrial twist on the classic bookshelf design. The polished steel frame provides a premium feel and solid foundation while the wood brings a warm contrasting tone. It is understated, but incredibly stylish and elegant making it a perfect addition to your home or office.


The Armoury Sideboard has a remarkable, unique design that is handcrafted with steel and wood. It is a vintage piece of furniture with intricate details found everywhere. The pattern in the grates on the door panels is just one example of how well made this piece is. It is solidly built and keeps your storage extremely safe, indicative of the “Armoury” title.

The Engineering Sideboard comes with either 1, 2 or 3 modules that are 600mm wide and a choice of either 600mm or 850mm in height. You can configure it in a variety of ways to suit your storage needs choosing from open shelves, doors or drawers. The 3 module sideboard is the one featured here. It is a minimalist and compact build, which works amazingly well as a TV unit and wouldn’t look out of place in the office. It’s not a case of style over substance either as the spacious cupboards are lockable to keep your prized possessions safe and secure. Drawers also come as standard with soft close runners for a more refined finish.


The Workshop Drawer Unit has a simple appearance at first glance, but when you take a closer look it has all the characteristics of industrial design such as the exposed rivets. It is an all steel unit and offers 4 equally spacious drawers, which are lockable.


The Lattice Low Shelving Unit is an excellent industrial storage choice. It is the same height as our desks and tables so it would complement a contemporary industrial office without taking up too much extra space. The lattice pattern is expertly manufactured from hot rolled mild steel. The brilliant design and the complex work that goes into making it gives the unit a real premium feel. You know it is something special.

Filing Cabinets

The Workshop 4 Drawer Filing Cabinet has the classic design you would expect, but with one difference. Unrivalled build quality. Most other filing cabinets you find today are made from extremely thin and weak metal, which is prone to bending. Our design uses thick, mild steel throughout with a secure locking system to keep your files and important documents safe from prying eyes.
