Handsome barbershop interiors are an essential element of a high impact experience and Industville (www.industville.co.uk) has all the finishing touches. Ruffians should know! The latest branch of Ruffians, arrived in one of London’s most distinctive and unusual areas – Shoreditch in August of last year. Cool bars, out-there clothes and plenty of hipster beards certainly make this quirky area of London the perfect place for Ruffians to set up shop. The interior has a clear nod to the location’s industrial past; previously an abattoir, this quirky venue has been given the full Ruffians treatment. Use of exposed brick and chunky oiled wood gives the space a tough, masculine feel that is elevated through the use of a selection of industrial lighting designs from Industville in brass. The rich golden tones of the brass combined with the traditional shapes add a luxurious elegance to the space.
Pride of place are two of Industville’s favourite lighting shapes. The classic Brooklyn Antique Flat Industrial Pendant Light is placed above the counter as you walk in. Its design looks to early-20th-century industrial lighting, retaining the classic lines and exposed hardware of the originals. Illuminating each work station is The Vintage Round Shaped Barn Swan Neck Retro Wall Sconce Lamp lining the tiled back wall. Inspired by heritage barn lighting, this particular light has been deservingly brought indoors and both lights are designed to showcase the warmth of Edison-style filament bulbs and bring out the beauty of the Ruffians brick and timber design. Each of the elements of the Ruffians interior help support the overall impact and experience for the customers that are happy to pay the £50 price of a haircut.
