Welcome to Carbon Industrial Design and prepare to embark on a journey through America’s industrial past. We have spent years collecting and salvaging machinery, equipment and artifacts from this nation’s earliest factories. We then bring our unique discoveries to our warehouse in historic Alexandria, Virginia where we transform them into one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture, décor and art.
Carbon’s team evokes the spirit of our past by re-purposing original pieces of factory equipment from the age of steam and iron into functional furniture. We also create custom designed pieces using reclaimed woods and steel enhancing the character of each unique item that is guaranteed to last for generations.
In our online catalog we display a number of extraordinary décor items, such as foundry molds, iron gears and pulley wheels, vintage shop stools and signs. Parts of machines serve as wall hangings or become the bases of a table connecting our heritage to our present day lives. We also have a treasure trove of vintage blueprints and drawings of industrial machinery from the turn of the last century framed in indelible steel that lends character to any living or work space.
Please browse our collections and let us know if you have any questions. You may also visit us at our retail store in Old Town, Alexandria.
