Iron Inspiration

I have been at Brimfield this week. Brimfield, arguably the country’s largest antique show and flea, was all I expected and more. You would think that being held in western Mass. that you’d see a lot of traditional and Early Americana, but I was struck by the amount of industrial salvage and upcycled pieces. Nothing like spotting a trend and capitalizing on it.

As I walked the 21 shows- within- a- show down the main street of Brimfield, I got loads of iron inspiration.


Who says drapery rods have to go on windows? Not only could they be used to create the shelving unit shown above and the picture gallery below, but why not towel bars in the bath? Shower curtain rods?


There were dozens of tents hat had lamp parts, chandelier fittings, serveware embossings and loads of bits and pieces that could be used to create crown pieces, finials, and brackets or the cornices below.


The common thread here is that no matter what kind of taste you have- vintage chic, traditional with a twist, formal French- custom drapery hardware can turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.
