Pierre Michel exists today
for a simple reason, we have an appreciation for fine hand crafted
works. Hand forging iron is a dying art. It demands years of experience
and patience to create these pieces from solid iron. Each piece is
individual and unique, unlike cast iron which is simply molten metal
poured into a mould. Heated in a coke-fuelled forge to a red heat
and beaten into shape over an anvil. Riveted and collared together
using a minimum of modern methods. Structurally guaranteed for twenty
years, with confidence.
Using local craftsmen we have been producing forged iron furniture
since 1976 making individual pieces to order. We have now decided
to take our business in a new direction, allowing us increase our
efficiency and reduce our prices. We have developed, and now concentrate
on the production of our own range of timeless forged iron products,
based on authentic designs and skillfully finished to enhance the
true character of this age old craft.
Currently available is our range of beds, but more products we will
introduce over time. We sincerely hope that making these works more
readily available will give more people the opportunity to own and
appreciate true quality in wrought iron furniture.
