WROUGHT CLASSIC IRON:
Forging iron is an art perfected through the ages. In the primitive days, lighting frames were made almost exclusively of iron that held the torches and oils that burned giving light. In our contemporary times, iron is used more for the need for unusual designs that could only be formed from raw iron than from any other material.
Classic has put together a number of Wrought Iron collections that typify the beauty and design that can only be obtained with this form of material. Some are offered with glass shades, silk shades, others with crystal prisms and others with both. In addition to accessorizing these chandeliers with shades and crystal, we have developed multi-process finishes that are aligned with current color tones in furniture, carpet, tile and furnishings. The warmth of Copper Bronze, charm of Florentine Bronze, elegance of English Bronze, striking look of Ashen Bronze and sublety of rich multi-layered hand rubbed Honey Walnut are all well represented in our Iron collections.
Country Kitchen and Asheville pot racks in Copper Bronze and English bronze iron finishes add warmth to that important room of the house - the kitchen.
Crystal being such an integral part of our lighting products and history is a natural accessory to enhance our wrought iron collections. We do not just buy pre-packaged fixture frames already with crystal included like most others who import but rather trim ours with our vast selection of good crystal shapes, colors and qualities plus offer distributors many crystal options and not just settle for the standard crystal included in the carton.
Adding large crystal almond prisms to the elegant curves and shapes of the Manila ll and Siena series softens the bold look. Amber oyster crystal trim on the Asheville grouping provides an alternate mood to the more formal Crystalique-Plus French Pendalogs. Chains of clear beads adorn and provide a stunning contrast to our almost-black Ashen Bronze Elegante family of chandeliers.
Our latest crystal introduced at this January Winter Dallas market, Italian Rock crystal in clear and amber, at a fraction of the cost of quartz crystal, was a resounding success. It is not only featured in the Muir Woods iron series but in many others throughout this catalog.
