Made by the Forge are the go-to experts in curtain poles

Our expertise and experience in blacksmithing make us your essential destination for finely crafted, bespoke, wrought iron curtain rods and poles. We are also renown for our beautiful wrought iron finials, and with over 6 designs of black finials to choose from, you can be sure that you will find the perfect match for your home. All of our metal curtain rods, poles and finials are handmade here in our forge in Suffolk, UK, using traditional skills. We use 16mm and 20mm round bars for the solid wrought iron curtain poles and 25mm for the hollow poles.

Ordering Process:

The ordering process for our bespoke, handmade, wrought iron curtain poles couldn't be easier. Simply follow these 3 steps:
Step 1: Select the size of pole you require (16mm, 20mm or 25mm).
Step 2: Choose the finial you'd like.
Step 3: Follow the instructions on the next page, enter your measurements, finish and the number of brackets and rings you require.
