If you’re thinking of giving your house a design make-over, Produit Intérieur Brut should be your first stop-off. This French company specializes in home design products and accessories for people who want their living environment to combine style with originality.
PIB offers an especially impressive selection of vintage industrial furniture, which is a trend that is definitely riding high at the moment. When we talk of ‘vintage industrial’ furniture, we’re not referring to antique furniture of the 18th and 19th centuries. Rather, this term is applied to the mass-produced designs of the post-war period. The most sought-after pieces date from the 1940s through to the 1980s, with these designs being appreciated for their practicality, good looks and strength.
Another of Produit Intérieur Brut’s specializations is Scandinavian furniture and design. As can be seen from the image below, elegance, simplicity and functionality are the watchwords of this particular school of design. Naturally, given the region’s vast areas of forestry, many designs from Finland, Sweden and Denmark are made out of top quality wood.
