The industrial style aesthetic is inspired by warehouses converted into lofts that became popular in the late 2000s. It’s usually associated with raw materials (like exposed bricks and piping), open spaces, neutral colors, and metal surfaces. There is some overlap with shabby chic and the farmhouse aesthetic.

There are many shelving strategies out there that use an industrial aesthetic, whether you want a home library that matches the rest of your decor or you want these shelves to add visual interest to a more neutral home layout. Weathered wood is associated with this look, but I didn’t want to go too far into farmhouse territory so these shelves have a metal and especially metal pipe element.

There are industrial bookshelves here to accommodate most of a home library or just a few books in a corner. I also found a couple of different options that include a lamp or reading light to make it multifunctional. These Edison lightbulbs are sure to be eye catching so you can keep your conversation starter books with them!

Let’s start with the larger bookcases and then move on to the smaller shelves and bookends. No matter what space you have available, you will be able to find at least one suitable!
