Industrial Tube and Upcycled Pallets

Industrial fittings, tube and upcycled Pallets

I really enjoy exploring interesting new places, this weekends discovery certainly fit that bill!

I was talking to a friend about places to go that was local to me and was a bit “quirky”, they suggested “Fargo Village” in Coventry.

Fargo Village is an independent shopping area with a lot to offer, we were initially going to check out the local cafes but were enticed by the Japanese “bubble tea” and other local shops, one of which caught my eye with its use of Industrial fittings, tube and upcycled Pallets.

Positive Outlook Clothing have totally embraced this wonderful look, incorporating it in every area of their store, from till, to clothing rails, to the actual walls, it all fits in to the theme.

The first thing she showed me was a breakfast table using Kee Klamp, its simple design doesn’t detract from how amazing it looks,  especially when you notice the rail setup behind it.
