The Industrial Revolution – the store, not the transitional period in the early 19th century – stocks a range of vintage and new furniture, homewares and electrical goods. Nestled in behind a nursery on Burwood Road this large warehouse space is chock full of goods with a distinctly industrial swagger. If you are looking for outdoor furniture, in particular metal chairs and recycled timber tables, you will no doubt enjoy a visit to The Industrial Revolution.
If you head east down Johnston street from the vintage hub of Fitzroy you will happen upon Reclaimed, a fabulous collection of secondhand goods and furniture constructed from recycled materials. The store is run by Rick and Jane, specialising in industrial and up-cycled homewares and furniture. Rick custom makes tables from recycled timber – if you like furniture with texture and character these will be right up your alley. The folks at Reclaimed also source large set lights which are then mounted on tripods to create wonderful and striking standing lamps.
