7 PIPE FURNITURE IDEAS FOR YOUR LIVING ROOM
There’s something about pipe furniture that just makes any room look extra stylish. It may be due to the DIY look and feel of the furniture or the rustic, industrial appeal. There’s no denying that pipe furniture leaves a lasting impression in any room.
Pipes are really versatile materials that you can use to create a unique piece of furniture. We’ve curated some of the best pipe furniture ideas for your living room to help you put together the space of your dreams.
1. Coffee Table
The coffee table is the centerpiece of any room and is often the most noticeable piece of furniture in a living space. A pipe coffee table can make a statement while serving a purpose. Pipe table legs paired with real wood tabletops create an outstanding effect that holds up to wear and tear.
Did you know that it’s easy to make your own lighting out of pipes and fittings? PIPE DECOR offers kits that allow you to put together a floor lamp or table lamp in no time flat. These statement lamps come with dimmer switches so you can set the mood in your living room. If you want to build your own from scratch, make sure that you follow all applicable electrical codes.
If you need more seating options than just your couch, why not build some? You can create pipe chairs to match the rest of your pipe furniture, whether it be a stool or something more substantial.
4. End Table
Another piece of furniture that you can build with pipes is an end table. These are smaller tables that are typically placed beside a chair or sofa. They’re a great place to put a table lamp and are also a convenient platform for beverages, books, TV remotes, or any other item for easy access. Much like a coffee table, you can use any tabletop you want in combination with pipe legs.
5. TV Stand/Entertainment Center
Choosing the right TV stand or entertainment center for your living room can be tricky, especially if you have a lot of electronic devices other than your TV. The best way to go about this is to make one yourself.
Luckily, you can create a completely custom option by building one out of pipes. Pipes can support a lot of weight when assembled correctly, so you can feel confident using your TV stand to store your TV, gaming systems, video players, and more. You can even customize each shelf to fit your specific devices.
When decorating the living room, you can’t forget about the walls. There’s a lot you can do with your walls to add utility and style to the room. Although hanging pictures on the wall is one option, you can also build shelving out of pipes. Pipe shelves are easy to make and can be used to display pictures, figurines, books, and all sorts of decor to bring more style to your living room.
7. Curtain Rods
If you’re not a big DIYer, you might want to start with a less complicated project. A set of pipe curtain rods is quick and easy to build. Simply measure the length of your window and get a pipe that matches the measurement. For longer windows, you can use unions or couplings to connect several different pipes together.
After the curtain rod is built, you can leave the ends as is or attach fittings such as flanges or plugs for a more finished look. Attach your curtains to the pipe, hang it over the windows, and you’re good to go!
Complete Your Living Room
Whether you’re starting from scratch or just rearranging your living room, choosing the right furniture and coming up with a cohesive look can be a very rewarding task. Working with pipes to create DIY furniture is easy, as pipes are very versatile and highly customizable.
PIPE DECOR offers furniture kits for your convenience, like our RESTORE line of table legs with sustainable wood tabletops. However, if you would rather create a completely custom piece, we also offer a wide range of pipes and fittings for any DIY project you have in mind. With the right materials and your imagination, the possibilities are endless.
