Unique French Style Curtain Poles, Handmade by the Forge

Let's face it. Style, elegance and being attractive are things the French are famous for. Made by the Forge's bespoke French Style metal Curtain Pole delivers all the quality and handcrafted expertise you would expect from the UK's number one wrought iron curtain pole specialist and adds a soupçon of Gallic charm. The pole has no finials as each end curves ninety degrees back to the wall where the pole slides into a bracket. The advantage of such a pole is that it is much more efficient at keeping out draughts.

You can install a French style curtain pole for a curtain over a window or a door to keep a howling wind at bay. Depending on the age of your home, there’s always a draught looking for a way in. The curtain will then create a more complete shelter from the wind.

Interior designers, discerning individuals and first-rate curtain makers, like Magenta Interiors, all choose Made by the Forge's Bespoke, Wrought Iron, French Style Curtain Poles. They look timeless, classy, superbly crafted, and they do their job immaculately. Add some 'Va va voom! to your room with a stylish French pole from Made by the Forge.

“Made by the Forge is my first stop for the best French poles on the market.”
Magenta Interiors - Bespoke Soft Furnishings

The pole is easy to fit, and each one includes a ring stop near the bracket to secure the last ring from pulling across the pole as you draw the curtain closed.

Complete the decor with a set of matching, hand-made curtain holdbacks from our complete range. Available with your choice of finial, or continue to browse Made by the Forge's complete range of wrought iron curtain poles.

"We are very pleased with the french curtain rail which arrived safe & well packed. The rails are installed and look beautiful, just in time for a cold snap 3°C overnight and they've done a great job at keeping the cold escaping out of the living room windows."
