Steel Vintage has been in business since 2009 with its first overseas order in 2015 to a company in Florida called Blackbird Ordinary (1). We supplied a range of tables and benches for their bar, and from then we realised the potential to sell internationally.
Our designs are unique, and our level of craftsmanship is second to none, even on a global scale. We believe this is why our clients invest in us as they know they are getting the very best industrial style furniture in the world.
Below are some examples of the work we have done in the United States. As you can see in the above map, we have exported all over the US and Europe plus as far as Japan and Australia.
At the bottom of the page, we will explain the buying journey so that you can see how easy it is to own one of our designs.
(1) In 2018 we sold our first Steampunk desk to a company called Kloberdanz Holdings (2) in Oregon. Our client was looking for something unique, an office desk that would impress and so they imported directly from us in the UK.
(2) In 2020 we sent a Brunel desk to a customer in Arizona, USA. “It’s always a scary thing ordering from overseas and paying upfront. My order was delayed A bit on the shipping side but I can assure you that this is a legitimate company with Great people and excellent customer service. My Brunel desk finally arrived here in Arizona and I couldn’t be more happy with the quality. It’s a beautiful piece!“
When approached by FIRE Restoration (3), based in Oregon, we were excited to collaborate on what proved to be a fantastic project. Using one of our Brunel table bases they fitted a reclaimed section of an NBA Trail Blazers basketball court, creating a one of a kind meeting table. You can read more about this case study here.
The Steel Vintage team are specialists in bespoke furniture. With our in-house design department, an experienced production team and a fully equipped workshop, we are set to exceed expectation.

Our largest US project to date was for a company called Planet 13 (4) who are in Vegas. The order included two of our standard Brunel desks, two of our Brunel Pedestal desks, two of our Brunel sideboards and a huge Pilot table. All items were sent safely in timber crates via UPS. You can read more about this project here in our case studies section.
When it comes to large scale industrial furniture projects, we have a vast amount of experience. From 350 staff office fit-outs to retail shop displays, and high-end restaurants, we can help your project run smoothly and on time.
Over the years, we have worked with companies of all sizes; however, we have also supplied private individuals all over the US too. One of our more recent happy clients, called Mr Arnold (5), purchased a Brunel desk and Brunel 3 drawer unit for his home office. As you can see, our vintage industrial style desk was the perfect choice for this traditionally designed space.
We have also provided a large variety of dining tables, home storage and home office desks to other private clients looking for a high-quality product.
We understand that buying from a company in the UK might seem like a daunting task. We are hundreds of miles away, and so it is fair to assume that delivery will be prohibitive. Not only are we in different time zones but also we also trade in pounds rather than dollars.
These are typical concerns, but please let us reassure you. You can see from the few examples on this page that we are experienced with exporting our furniture to both the US and the rest of the world. The secret to completing a successful delivery is to use an international freight company who specialises in trade between the UK and US. We, therefore, use UPS to handle all of our overseas deliveries.
The first step is to use our product configurator to establish what design, size and specification you require. Once you’ve added your chosen items to the shopping basket, you will be presented with the option to request a shipping quote. After submitting your request, a member of our team will contact UPS to establish a delivery cost. We will then update your basket accordingly, and you can then confirm your order. Alternatively, you can email us with your requirements, and we will provide a full quote.
When your payment has cleared a member of our customer service team will be in touch to check the details provided for delivery, including the address, contact number and access. Once all cleared, one of our designers will contact you with a technical drawing for you to approve before manufacturing starts.
Once your order is complete, and you have approved photos of the finished items, all parts will be carefully wrapped and loaded into bespoke heat-treated shipping crates. These are then transported to our local airport where they are then either flown or shipped directly to your nearest port or airport. From then the crate is transported via road and delivered straight to your property. This whole process typically takes less than two weeks from dispatch to the final destination.
When the crate reaches the US, you will be contacted by UPS to arrange customs clearance. You will need to use your broker or UPS can act on your behalf. At this stage, any local taxes will be requested before the final leg of the journey can happen.
Once the crate arrives you will need to arrange to unload and install the furniture into your property (unfortunately we do not have an install team in the US). Our furniture, although very heavy, is easy to assemble plus full instructions will be provided.
