Interior Design Trend: Crate Furniture

Posted on Aug 5, 2015 by

This feature was taken from the launch issue of Warehouse Home.

From small side cabinets to more sizeable storage, there’s a real feel for freight this season. Containers and crates are as stylish and fun as they are solid and functional. We’ve packed in four of our favourites.

This quirky cabinet is part of a range by Italian designers Seletti. We like the irreverant juxtaposition of the packing crate body with the ornate Baroque style legs. It’s fun furniture, whether displayed individually or as a set.

Hand crafted from decommissioned cargo containers, including the bar locking system, this cabinet offers heavy duty storage for your home or office. The vibrant yellow finish and bold design make a real statement.

These modular cabinets, made in the Netherlands, were inspired by brightly coloured cargo containers. Available in any RAL colour, stackable and with the option to add wheels, they’re endlessly customisable.

This one-of-a-kind table was crafted from a repurposed pine crate once used to ship artwork from Los Angeles to London. It’s lined with pages from a 1924 French illustrated dictionary and mounted on tapered orange legs.

Inspired by the crate and container trend, we commissioned London-based print studio The Shipping Press (whose studio is based in a decommissioned shipping container) to create a series of Limited Edition container prints. Available exclusively via the Warehouse Home shop.
