The great and revered Henry Ford of the early US motor car industry famously said “Any customer can have a car painted in any colour he wants, as long as it’s black.” When it comes to curtain poles, you can’t go wrong with a natural beeswax or matt black finish. At Made by the Forge, it’s our signature ironwork colour.
However, we’ve had many requests to provide a choice of different colours to suit complimentary interiors.
To that end, we have launched three different colour options, available by special request, for our best selling Grand Cannonball finial and matching 25mm curtain pole; gold, copper and antique bronze. If your window space tends towards the colour scheme of triumph and flamboyance, then go for gold. Gold finial… there’s a song in there somewhere. Copper suits the darker end of the spectrum while antique bronze gives the pole and finial a connection with metalwork from a bygone age. All three colours are subtle, attractive and contemporary while retaining a classic distinctiveness.
Colour choices for interiors are hugely subjective. There is no right or wrong in terms of colour preference despite your own personal tastes (which, we are sure, are discerning and well considered). The three shades were specifically designed to compliment the most prevalent interior colour schemes. We hope that the range has a colour to suit your own living space. If not, remember that matt black – which goes with anything – remains an option. To paraphrase the great Mr. Ford, “You can have a 25mm curtain pole and Grand Cannonball finial in any colour you want as long as it’s black, gold, copper or antique bronze.” Contact us now.
