Interior mesh up: Wire mesh interior design

The industrial style revolution has transformed wire mesh from a functional practical product into a stylish interior feature. Designers of modern commercial, residential and retail spaces love the effects of wire mesh and its sheer versatility. Whether it is used as a room divider, staircase balustrade or to cast new light on interior ambience, wire mesh interior design ideas are endless.

And when combined with warmer, natural features like wood, wire mesh really shows its metal. Designers are even stepping outside the box and using wire mesh as an exterior focal feature.

Here are some of our favourite examples of wire mesh interior design and exterior uses. If these inspire you, we have ready-made woven wire mesh profiles in stock, in 304 and 316 stainless steel and brass, for immediate dispatch.
