Iron pan rack with thumper finials

This pan rack features in The Fabulous Baker Brothers kitchen on their TV show Channel 4. We have been busy at the Forge clearing and  organising all areas of our business from filing paperwork to refreshing our kitchen space. We have decided to breathe some new life into our kitchen by adding another pan rack giving us a clearer work top.

Tapestry hung on iron curtain poleWith the new trend for multicoloured tapestry mentioned in this month’s Homes &  Gardens magazine have you considered hanging a tapestry from one of our wrought iron poles? The black iron compliments the colourful graphic patterns that are so popular at the moment and we can make bespoke lengths or brackets to your requirements.

We saw this great advice on making a small window look its best – simple but it works! Same size of window but look how much grander the one on the right seems!

Our products are made to last a life time. One of our clients who has an old barn has a huge 5 metre window opening. In their case one of the middle brackets needed to be a lot longer than the standard bracket. We at Made by the Forge were able to make this special bespoke bracket for this particular space.

Another client has recently relocated. They took their curtain poles with them to their new house. Made by the Forge is in the process of customising their existing curtain poles for their new windows. It feels good not to throw products away just because they are not quite right. Here we can make them a perfect fit for any space and our client says they look as good as the day she bought them.

When designing ones home it is an exciting time as well as an expensive time. Sometimes mixing and matching expensive with cheap works really well. This inexpensive light shade could be dressed up with black iron chain for a more substantial feel. Wrought iron accessories can be supplied by Made by the Forge in matt black paint or beeswax.
