Latest trend blog - 'Raw industrial' design

Minimalist white furniture has been with us for a while now but there is a new trend that is taking things a step further. We are seeing more and more pared down, almost industrial design.

In the offices of forward thinking companies like AOL, Microsoft & Google, we are seeing bare, unfinished wood on walls as well as floors.

This look is proving to be even more popular in cafés and restaurants. Jamie Oliver's Italian restaurant in Birmingham features bare metal tables and chairs with bare wood used on walls and floors.  

With regards to offices, we have already had designers asking us for galvanised metal racking, which is more commonly used in warehouses, for use as shelving in offices alongside our DNA desking.  

If you would like to talk to us further about the design of your office or breakout area, please give us a call on 0116 251 7741.
