Industville X Ruffians @ Shoreditch
A humble barber shop elevated to a stylish and luxurious experience.
Handsome barbershop interiors are an essential element of a high impact experience and Industville has all the finishing touches. Ruffians should know! The humble barber shop has been elevated to a stylish and luxurious experience and Ruffians is the perfect example. The latest branch of Ruffians, arrived in one of London's most distinctive and unusual areas – Shoreditch, in August of last year. 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 inspired by heritage barn lighting designed to showcase the warmth of Edison-style filament bulbs which brings 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. Andrew Cannon, Founder and Director of Ruffians says “Our Ruffians Shoreditch store used to be an abattoir, so we needed to ensure we used detailing that reflected the Ruffians aesthetic as well as giving that traditional, industrial edge. The Industville lighting was exactly what we needed. Our golden wall mounted lights are an eye-catching element of our store with the pendant lights helping complete the look and provide perfect lighting.” IMAGE CREDITS: Ruffians Shoreditch, Industville,
