Your room-by-room guide to styling with Pipe Furniture

First things first: Why should I choose pipe furniture?

From clunky cupboards to chunky units that take up valuable space, we understand first-hand that finding effective, stylish and easy-to-fit furniture that blends into your decor can be a difficult task - but not impossible!

Our pipe furniture sets are easy to assemble in a few simple steps, instantly enhancing your space with minimal effort. Fully customisable, from the wood and wax finish to choosing your pipe colour, you have the freedom to create a storage setup that is utterly unique to your home.

Our collection offers a variety of shapes and sizes, too, so whether you’re creating a feature wall with our 5 or 6 shelf pipe furniture units, or are simply looking for a way to utilise that awkward alcove with our smaller alternatives, you’re guaranteed to find the right setup for your space. And, if you can’t, then we also have the capability to create bespoke, made-to-measure furniture across a variety of our collections, including pipe furniture.

Not sure what shade to choose? Fear not! We even offer samples and a complimentary colour-match service, simply email us a picture, preferably in daylight, of the furniture you would like us to colour match, and we will happily provide samples to ensure you get the perfect wood finish. 

Home Office: Create an organised home office haven

Depending on the size of the space you have to work with, there are a number of ways to configure your dream home office. If you’re looking for an all-in-one setup that offers desk space and storage, then our industrial pipe furniture desks might just be a perfect fit.

With single and double desk options available, as well as two depths, you can easily select the right size for your space. Featuring a large workspace plus two shelves above, you’ll have plenty of room to store your paperwork, books, stationary and screens with ease.

If space is more limited, why not create your own bespoke configuration with a made-to-measure rustic desk top or industrial box desk, accompanied by a 2, 3 or 4 shelf unit instead to maximise on storage?



Living Room: Get creative with clever storage solutions

Have a blank wall that you’re not sure what to do with? Why not craft your very own statement wall to add a touch of industrial charm to your living room with our 6 shelf chunky pipe furniture units! Style them with houseplants, frames and eclectic homeware pieces to create a point of interest without taking up much floor space. Not only that, our 5 and 6 shelf chunky pipe furniture sets make for brilliant bookshelves, ideal for those seeking to create a cosy nook for reading.

If your living room calls for smaller storage solutions, though, we’ve got you covered! Our floor-mounted shelving units are great for seamlessly slotting in smaller, awkward corners without being too busy.


Kitchen: Add effortless extra storage to your cooking space

With cupboards and counters inevitably taking up most of the space in your kitchen, adding shelves can add a refreshing contrast to your space, opening up the room and allowing you to display your favourite trinkets and everyday essentials.

Our full wall 5 and 6 pipe furniture units are great for showcasing your best cookbooks, fanciest crockery and collection of eclectic homewares that can transform a cold kitchen into a home. Housing your herbs, spices, condiments and utensils here can add an element of practicality too.

The beauty of our pipe furniture units is that they take up very little floor space, with as little as 22cm shelf depth available, giving you all of the storage space with none of the clutter!

Our smaller shelf configurations can be an effective way to add some additional storage without the need for extra cabinets. Our units are as hardy as they look, too, boasting a whopping 12kg weight limit per shelf,  so you can find a happy home for even your heaviest posh dinnerware!
