Gallery - Contemporary gates with decorative side panel
These highly individual driveway gates were especially designed for a family of keen sailors
The design of these contemporary driveway gates perfectly illustrates the ability of hot-forged ironwork to express one's individuality: they grace the home of a family of keen sailors!
The story behind these gates highlights how, as highly skilled blacksmiths, we can give you what you want, whilst the factory-made mass producers will give you what they want. Having only seen mass-produced examples of ironwork in their neighbourhood, these customers originally thought that this was all that was available to them and so had only found something that they thought they 'quite liked'. At our initial meeting with them, we discovered their love of sailing and so included the design for these driveway gates amongst a range of more traditional options which we presented at our second meeting. Without any prompting from us, they immediately homed in in this design and placed an order for the gates on the spot!
