Sebastian Reclaimed Scaffolding Boards and Steel Pipe Industrial Chic Shelving

Contemporary Living Room, Manchester

Reclaimed Scaffolding Boards and Steel Pipe Shelving/Bookcase - Its salvaged vintage industrial design works perfectly in a sophisticated, casual living space. This shelving system can be made to measure to your own specifications. The shelves pictured here are 5 ft wide and 6.5ft tall... but the sky's the limit... these shelves can be made with double the number of steel pipe risers so it can be freestanding... the piping can be painted.... scaffolding boards could be substituted for reclaimed floor boards, chunky reclaimed timber of any type, toughened glass, sheet metal, wire grills, railway sleepers... whatever you would like... I can source anything and gladly will ! The scaffolding boards pictured in this example were simply brushed down so they retained a gritty raw look, but anything you choose to use can be distressed or polished up to create any required finish. Please contact me to discuss any ideas or obtain quotes. All systems will come with detailed installation and build instructions... they are amazingly easy to put together and install... you just need a regular DIYer drill and suitable fixings for the wall they are to be mounted on... or neither of these if you choose a freestanding option... it's just a case of screwing components together in the right order.
