Satisfaction

Let our customers tell you why…

Made by the forge provided friendly advice & created an excellent quality curtain rail for this tricky door. I wanted to be able to shut out the draft yet easily open the curtain to allow access & this works perfectly. Thank you so much, I love it!
Thanks

Dear Richard,
Thank you very much for the rail. It has taken me two years to decide about the rail because I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted. As promised, I have attached some photos of the rail in place. As you can see, I have stayed true to my ‘tear sheet’ influence of hanging the tea towel on the rail near the sink.
I will be ordering a few more hooks from the website because I was unsure as to how the hooks would look on the rail in reality.
Kind regards,
Anna

My curtain pole arrived this morning, securely wrapped and looking very much like a curtain pole (and not like a box of labels!).
Thank you so much for your fabulous customer service -getting it remade and delivered so quickly was amazing.

This has really finished off this room, thank you.

Quality hand made black curtain recess pole (for the front door). Ordered online, kept upto date along the way, I was informed it might take a little longer being hand made and during the pandemic. I'm in no rush for something quality. It arrived on time, packaged very well, had 2 brackets, screws and instructions. Measured to perfection. This was easy to put up & I'm delighted with this. It's also great to know it's hand made right here in the UK. Love it!

Dear Jack,
We are so impressed with the quality of workmanship that has gone into our curtain fittings. The metal feels so heavy and strong and the finials are characterised by real craftsmanship. I have loved dealing with this firm. We had to wait for our order because the team are so busy, but this was clearly disclosed from the outset and the wait added to our sense of anticipation and enjoyment. I had to change the order slightly and the team could not have been more accommodating. It’s been a pleasure doing business with them and I am sure we will be repeat customers in the future.

I am very pleased with the items and the service from The Forge. I ordered three curtain poles, one fo which needed bespoke brackets making. The measuring was simple and the poles and bespoke brackets were correct and fitted perfectly. The items are good quaiity and well made, and I would purchase from The Forge again.

Hello to all at Made by the Forge
After much to-ing and fro-ing, I was able to get up to Birmingham this weekend to help my sister put up her 7-bend bay window pole - it was definitely a three person job! The quality of the pole and fittings is excellent and she is beyond delighted with it. Please find attached some photos - I’m afraid they are not of great quality but they show what an excellent fit you have made. Also, having the side return with the beautiful cage finial really “makes” the whole installation into something special. Thanks to you all for your patience and diligence in dealing with our measuring issues!
Wishing you all the best
Caroline

Hi,
I understand you are redoing your catalogue, and I wanted to suggest that you include towel rails - including for towels, and for kitchen towels. I took some photos of mine. They are essential and they work fabulously - they’ll likely be part of my property for hundreds of years to come.

Some months ago, you made a really strong tieback for a big heavy curtain and some lovely shelf brackets with oak boards.
I am thrilled with them. My porch doubles as part of my workshop where I solder silver jewellery.
Photography not excellent but the all look great include the curtain poles you made some time ago.
Lovely work. Thank you.

Hi Richard,
Just to let you know the holdback has just arrived. I'm really thrilled with it. Beautifully made by a British craftsman; will look great and make the room lighter by holding back the curtain. What else could I want? Nothing! (Except getting it attached to the wall as quickly as possible.) Perfect. Thank you so much.

A little late, but better late than never.
A huge thank you for getting the poles ready and sent out here in january when you were so busy. They have now been installed and the clients are very happy with them as far as I know. I wasn't able to do the installation due to a back issue so I haven't seen them in place yet. Very disappointed, but I will go and look in the summer.
Thanks again and I hope that Brexit isn't going to cause any problems in our continuing business dealings
Best regards.

I have finally got around to sending you pics of the curved poles you made for us! Not great pics but you get the idea.

Hi Richard, completed the fit out here with some interesting sign language directions to the Spanish builders ha ha. Everything arrived in perfect condition, the only things missing were one joining rod (i improvised with some drill bits and masking tape :-) ) and a single grub screw. But probably the grub screw fell out and was chucked with the bubble wrap. I am SOOO impressed with your work, it has been a dream to fit these beautiful poles. Here's a pic of the big bay pole, it went up an absolute treat. I now know the spanish for spirit level, drill bit and plenty more lol.

Dear Richard,
Hope all is well with you at the forge,
At long last the handrail has been installed, after a long running dispute with our builder (but I won't bore you with that!). I have attached a couple of images to let you see it in situ.
Thank you for all of your efforts, it looks great and certainly makes descending the stairs a much safer experience!
Kind regards and Happy Easter,
Lorraine

Curtain pole with cannonball finials

Hi Richard
Thank you very much for your work we're really happy with them.
Both poles are up and curtains hung, they're a bit creased in the photos... maybe in storage for too long, lol.
Thank you again.

bespoke iron bird feeder

Richard
Thank you so very much for making this simply beautiful bird feeder station. It will actually live on our patio so we get to watch the birds so the second photo is more accurate. Keep trying to get a photo of the tits who have beaten the bull finches to it but they’re reluctant to have their photo taken currently
Best wishes and thank you again for your amazing forging.

Dear Richard,
I have received my order and wanted to write to thank you! I am delighted with my bespoke brackets and curtain pole, they are quite simply beautiful and exactly what I wanted! were the brackets difficult to make? I love them, they are true to design and beautifully showcase the authentic imperfections that come with something that is handmade.
Thank you ever so.
With kindest regards,
Kavita

iron bay window pole

Bay window pole

Hi Richard,
I didn’t get round to fitting the rail till after the holidays, once we had taken down the Xmas tree from the bay window. Now I’ve got round to doing it it seems to fit spot on !! Wow - how did that happen ? I was expecting problems but it’s gone together very well - what do you think. Looks like one of us did a decent job ;-)

Four packages have now arrived. Haven't opened it all up yet but finials and holdbacks look lovely. Excellent workmanship and arrived well before due date. Thanks. We'll, no doubt, be in touch for other purchases.
Regards, Patrick
