Have you ever stopped to think about how versatile wrought iron is? I never really thought about it much, probably because I associated wrought iron as just being a black piece of clunky metal. Thankfully, there are talented designers that have the gift to merge functionality with style which has changed my view of wrought iron and opened my eyes to all it's possibilities.
Wrought iron has come a long, long way and, in my opinion, is one of the most adaptable pieces of furnishings you can add to create warmth and charm to your home decor. Not only is it beautiful to look at you have to also admire the workmanship that goes into each piece. But from a decorators perspective the importance lies in its flexibility of using it with any decor style from French Provencal to Country.
