8. Suspended industrial pipe unit
Suspending shelves from the ceiling instead of having them on the floor clears up some nice floor space and looks super modern. Industrial pipe is strong enough to hold heavy loads, so you could add quite a couple of shelves together. Just make sure you secure them properly to the ceiling.
9. Off centre corner shelves
Not everyone’s cup of tea, I guess, but definitely a unique design. If the asymmetrical look bothers you, try adding the exact pipe structure to the left hand side to balance the shelves. This could also help if you want to create larger corner shelves than this one here.
10. Hanging shelves with industrial pipe rod
Instead of using industrial pipe throughout the shelving, make use of other material like the rope here. Install one industrial rod on top and hang a couple of shelves together on the rod. Nothing touching the floor which makes cleaning underneath a breeze. Great rustic look for much less.
11. Suspended low shelving
