Bespoke ironwork can complement an interior like very few other designed pieces. It has the added benefit of being both reassuringly traditional and at the cutting edge. Context is all. Richard and the team at Made by the Forge were commissioned to work with Senior interior Designer, Annie Harrison at the superbly named design company Run For the Hills; a London-based creative design house that exists in the space where graphics and interiors meet.

Named by ‘Design Et Al’ magazine as one of ‘The World’s Leading Design Names, 2018’, Run For The Hills enjoys a superb reputation and Made by the Forge collaborated with the design team fashioning bespoke ironwork for a very specific space. Specialising in the very best seafood from around the British Isles is CLAW (another great brand name). They have a take-away outlet in the city, near Liverpool Street station and have since opened the Carnaby Restaurant right behind Hamley’s on Kingly Street, Soho. CLAW can also be booked independently for festivals and events.

It’s there you’ll find Made by the Forge’s work, ranging from bespoke wall brackets for their lighting and bespoke hand made coat hooks.

If you have an idea Made by the Forge can take your bespoke designs and turn your imagination into handcrafted, wrought iron pieces which will add a certain rustic charm to any interior. Old fashioned spaces or contemporary places, iron just works.

New Product Launch – The Forge Shelf Brackets

There is something extremely satisfying about robust, reliable shelving and a shelf’s best friend is what it’s supported by. Made by the Forge’s Forge Shelf Bracket is a product that conveys simplicity first and foremost. There is no tin it comes in but if it did, it does exactly what it says on it. It’s there to do a job, and once installed properly on a wall, it’ll take the heavy load.

There are few homes in the land that could not use a little more shelving. These durable and extremely strong brackets are made of solid wrought iron and despite their rustic simplicity, they are rather attractive and come with a choice of black or natural beeswax finish. They are handcrafted in bespoke sizes to perfectly match your choice of shelving.

So why not let this sturdy support inspire you to action? Space may have been Captain Kirk’s final frontier but for the rest of us, it’s at a premium. So save time, save space and reclaim that floor area, maximise that wall space and put up that shelf.

Some of our clients send in images of their new ironwork and the image below is from a customer who wanted brackets for a wooden shelf he wanted to mount on the wall. His idea was simple and stylish and the handmade brackets bring a touch of individuality to his home with the added benefit of supporting us British Blacksmiths and helping keep our craft alive.

Morning Richard
Just to let you know that our order arrived yesterday, I am delighted with the curtain poles and ties backs.
The chap will fit them next week, and then the curtains soon after that.
Your company has been a pleasure to deal with, very approachable, reasonably priced, excellent service, and made in Great Britain which I am very passionate about.
I will have no hesitation in recommending you.
Many thanks and kind regards
Katrina

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.
