The Aesthetic

Industriale is a furniture design studio based in Perth, WA. 

Originating in WA's Pilbara region, Industriale has always worked at the intersection of industrial and natural. The aesthetic reflects the tensions between industrial processes (controlled, repetitive, precise) and hand-crafting (fluid, individual, imprecise). I design steel components that are laser cut for accuracy, but use timber that is undulating, curvaceous, and warm. The ever-present nature reasserts herself in my work: steel rusts, patinas develop, perfect imperfection abounds. The Japanese notion of wabi sabi connects well with my ethos. 

Every Industriale piece is designed in-house and made in Perth, WA. Where your (or my!) imagination overtakes my current capacity, I engage with a network of talented local craftspeople to produce Industriale furniture. This might mean specialised welding, concrete table tops, glass, or any other number of things.

The Shop

The Industriale shop contains samples of the regular range of table bases, small furniture, and home decor objects made by my creative friends. Occasionally, whole dining tables make it to the shop, but these are snapped up quickly! You can see items that are currently for sale by clicking each category under WORK. I also send out email notifications to my mailing list when new pieces are available. 

Pop in to the store and check out what's on offer, or discuss your custom order. I'm pleased to offer my metal furniture bases as DIY options. This enables my customers to re-use an existing table top, or to make use of materials left over from architectural projects - good for the environment, good for my customer! 

Find the store upstairs at 14/872 Beaufort St Inglewood, opposite La Luna.

Q. Where is Industriale furniture produced?

Everything is made right here in Perth.

Q. What turnaround time can I expect? 

On average, lead time is four weeks for your furniture to be custom made. This includes production of custom-sized steel components, fabrication, and powder coating. 

Longer lead times may apply for large orders or for more complex designs. Please contact me prior to ordering if you have any concerns or a specific deadline. 

Q. Can I use my Industriale furniture outdoors?

Yes, in general - please ask before purchasing. Steel and aluminium are  under coated and then powder coated for durability.

Be aware that some table tops might not withstand outdoor use, and consider this when making your selection. 

Q. What happens when I order an Industriale piece?

First, I produce detailed drawings outlining the specifications of your product. 

Second, a quote. 

Third, you pay up-front in full for your commissioned piece. (In the extremely rare event that your piece is somehow faulty, don't worry, you're covered by Australian Consumer Law)

Then we get to work! You'll receive photos throughout the creative process, and I'm always available to talk if you have any concerns. I'll always try to accommodate last minute changes, and will advise you beforehand if they'll incur additional charges. (Example: adding a shelf incurs additional charges. Deciding on a different colour does not, unless it's already powder coated!)  If required, I engage a network of talented creative friends who specialise in timber, concrete, and more!  These makers work with me regularly and we work together to create exactly what you've requested.

Finally, delivery. In general, you can collect from our Bayswater studio, or have delivery by Little Green Truck Midland, starting from $80. Please note, concrete items may not be eligible for pick up. 

Q. I already have a table top, will Industriale table bases work with it? Timber, concrete, glass, stone... 

Most designs can be adapted to suit most table top materials. Just mention it when you order. Some materials, like marble and composite stone, can only span certain distances and may not be suitable for use with all table bases. Others are very heavy and may need additional support. We're happy to visit you to see your individual circumstances. 

Q. I see size ranges listed for table base pricing - how does that work?

Our furniture bases are made to order according to your specifications. To simplify pricing, it is priced within a range of commonly chosen dimensions. If you'd like something outside the dimensions supplied, just ask!

Q. How do I choose the correct dimensions?

A good starting place is with your existing furniture. For example:

- Chairs are typically 300mm lower than table tops. If your dining chairs are 440mm high, your table should be around 740mm. (Some tables are up to 780mm high, some chairs as low as 380. It pays to check!)

- How many people will your dining table seat on a regular basis? A starting point for a six seater table is roughly 185 x 75cm, with two people at each long side and one on each end. 

- Will your furniture fit in to your room, allowing space to move around it? Consider the impact of table leg shape on this. (For example, Iron Butterfly meets at quite a narrow point, and to accommodate your particular chairs you may need a longer overhang of timber).  It can be useful to lay out a masking tape table top on the floor, and put chairs around it to test.

Please visit the store in Inglewood, and we will happily help you test sizing and usability. Most of our components are laser cut to the millimetre, and we are happy to make adjustments. 

Q. Can you deliver my furniture?

Absolutely. Deliveries in Perth Metro are by Little Green Truck Midland. 

Typical charges (from the Industriale studio in Bayswater): $80 minimum, $100 to Trigg/Vic Park/Scarborough/Midland, $120 to Fremantle.

Please note that very large or heavy items, or items required to be moved to second story, may require additional hands on deck and therefore additional charges. 

You are welcome to collect from the Bayswater studio, free of charge. 

Interstate delivery is available and quoted on an individual basis. 

Q. What is your returns policy? 

In the extremely rare event that your furniture is somehow defective or different in size from what was quoted in writing, we will replace or refund it.  (Please allow up to 3mm in variation, as pieces are hand-made. Variation is usually much less than this, though).  All your rights under Australian Consumer Law apply.

If you believe the item to be defective, please remove the item from use immediately, advise us in writing of the issue (email),  and take photographs to document the defect where applicable.

* Please note that we do not guarantee against defects arising from misuse, e.g. standing on table tops. Furniture should be handled gently and supported when moved. Table bases with attached tops should be lifted by the steel base, not by the table top. 

We do not accept returns for change of mind, though we will assist you to re-home your piece where possible. Please choose your furniture dimensions carefully. We encourage you to visit the store and see the furniture in person, and to take advantage of our free measure and quote service. 

Q. Is there anything you won't make?

Yes. I won't copy the designs of other companies. Please don't ask, as refusal may offend.
