What are 'industrial antiques'

Industrial antiques are the well-worn stools, tables, benches, office furniture, lighting, equipment components and miscellaneous items from factories and schools, medical facilities, farms and shops. 

Great beauty in simple function
They are the tools, equipment and furnishings of people at work. 


Ecstatic, proud, thankful, … the BOLD pop-up was fantastic

Months of preparation and hard work, harsh deadlines, doubts and questions, longing and excitement. And suddenly there it was … our very first pop-up shop, filled with vintage industrial antiques and curiosities. The opening night was a moment of great decompression and smiling, smiling, smiling. It was a wonderful week!

Our bartable shot the Red Baron (kinda)

This BOLD bar table has a remarkable history. Made of a Hofherr machine, it is based on the same technology used in the aircraft that shot down the Red Baron!

We start our story in 1842, in Lincoln, England. Nathaniel Clayton formed a partnership with his brother-in-law, Joseph Shuttleworth. They established an engineering company ‘Clayton & Shuttleworth’.
