Is It Made Out Of Metal?

We sometimes get odd requests from clients, such as: “Can you make me a heavy curtain rod with unique hooks that hangs from the ceiling?”

Our response: “Is it made out of metal?”

 Usually the answer is yes, and we can make it. It’s not just about fabricating things. It’s about the creative process, and that is what truly drives us to imagine new ideas and improve upon old ones. Are we the first people to come up with the idea of the hairpin table leg? Not even close! But we’ve tweaked it:

hairpin legs with feet …and twisted it: unique hairpin legs

…to provide you with unique products that you cant get at Ikea. You usually end up at stores like West Elm or Crate and Barrel. While these stores provide some great inspiration, what you really end up with is a piece that is overpriced and cheaply made in a sweatshop overseas. I recently had a phone conversation with a customer who purchased her entire dining room set from West Elm and spent way too much money for what she got. For the same price she could have supported small business and received a superior product that was hand made right here in Our Country, the United States of America.

The moral of the story is: If you have a vision for a product and can’t find exactly what you want at the import warehouse, call us! Because most likely if it is made out of metal…we can make it better and stronger!
