silos + factories

vintage industrial from american furnishings



We think old factories, abandoned warehouses, woodworking shops, barns and silos are fascinating places to explore. Everything is so perfectly worn, having spent many years being used by those who work hard – making a living by working with their hands. A lot of our very favorite pieces of furniture in our own home, we have found in abandoned places like these, like our blue school desk found in a warehouse, our tanker industrial steel desk found outside a police station, our metal card catalog from an old factory, and our orange set of lockers from an abandoned woodshop. Things seem to have more meaning when they have an interesting backstory to tell.

The folks at american furnishings have also visited many of these long forgotten places in middle america and rescued some amazing pieces, re-purposed for useful everyday items and now available in their shop.
