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.

The summer is the time when many people change the look of their rooms and use small things to make a real statement and add the finishing touch. Why not consider revamping your cupboard doors with some new wrought iron handles or door knobs? Made by the Forge handcrafts all the door furniture especially for you.

Theblack iron handles are available in two finishes; beeswax or matt black paint. They look and feel great on all sorts of home furniture.

Last week a good friend asked me to make them something to hang their hand towel off in their small downstairs cloakroom. This is what I came up with.

 

Never has there been a better time to buy British…

The words of Interior designer Antonia Stewart who shares her latest advice for home owners in February’s edition of  Period Living
The article is informative and interesting and shows that the trend right now is on quality products that are built to last and do not cost the earth. Something very close to my heart.
