Forged iron is traditional and historical, we like the way it looks ‘old’ straight away and how you can just pop it into corners of your house and it feels right at home without needing much thought. Devilishly hard and steel black, although the colour slightly wears with use and time, revealing a little glint of silver sheen.
A solid piece of iron that is heated, softened, shaped and hammered by hand in the traditional way, it is an age-old craft that has a wonderful and mesmerising fascination. These products are most definitely for using, for giving you solid strength and a simplicity that makes them feel humble and reliable in a no-nonsense way. There are no frills and no ornamentation because you can do that with other accessories, these are for all those little places that just need a good looking, helpful hook or set of hooks and we love that utilitarian essence. There is such love for highly decorative interiors that these pieces feel almost an antidote to this and yet in their own way they are bold, so for the understated homeowner, the sensible homeowner or the flamboyant homeowner, these seemed to us to fit all those requirements.
