DIY Furniture from Steel Sections

Do it Yourself: Self-Made Furniture in "Industrial Style"

It does not always have to be country style. If you want a new look for your apartment, you should consider "industrial style". This design style captures the appealing ambience of old factory halls and combines steel or stainless steel with wood and concrete. In particular, furniture with metal sections gives rise to the puristic look and is therefore absolutely essential for the factory flair. It can also be combined well with other styles, which has helped it become established as a lifestyle trend.

Apartment with industrial style furniture

If you take a closer look at how the furniture is constructed, any hobby craftsman will clearly see that the metal structures are kept extremely simple. As a DIY maker, they represent the ideal template for creating your own designs. It is a grand feeling to enjoy furniture you built yourself. Such furniture lends your living space an industrial flair and raises the comfort factor considerably.

A DIY craftsman measures a square tube

With our large selection of steel and stainless steel sections as starting material, the range of possibilities is limitless. The classic section shapes are square or rectangular tubes, flat bars and angle sections. If you want to get a bit more extravagant, you can also implement your ideas with round tubes of stainless steel. In addition, the stable material allows for sleeker designs than wood. Chair, bookshelf or custom coffee table or sideboard: anything is possible. The implementation is often simpler than you might think, and the cost of the DIY furniture is considerably lower than for comparable designer products.

The simply designed furniture pieces can also serve as an ideal starting point for learning to weld. There is not much you can do wrong, and bit by bit, you will expand your handicraft skills.

Home-made: Cheaper than store-bought

A glance at the prices of such designer furniture pieces will quickly yank you back to reality. While comparable pieces can cost hundreds of euros at the store, the material costs of a home-made table are significantly lower. Naturally, this does not yet take into account the labour involved. We know from our customers, however, that they are happy to invest the time to create a unique piece of furniture. The emotional attachment to the furniture you make yourself is also much greater.
