Yakisugi Industrial Coffee Table in Avalon

Industrial Yakisugi Coffee Table

Another week for IronFire sees another collaboration with a local firm. This time our Industrial Yakisugi Coffee Table went on an outing to Avalon Interiors in Frome. Yakisugi is an old Japanese tradition of burning wood to protect against boring insects. Of course, Avalon is the home of Sarah Hayford and an Aladdin’s Cave of gorgeous clocks, mirrors and all things interior. We wanted to get it right. Also it was was the first time we had tried out this finish. So, we took a Coffee Table in it’s standard size (1400×900). The table top was crafted in our works in Wiltshire using the Yakisugi method and our own style of hand finish. We think that we’re one of the only UK furniture makers using burning on Douglas Fir to decorate tables. Yakisugi is a tradition used to preserve wood from rot and bugs. It also increases the life of wood and, amazingly, it’s fire resistance. At the same time Douglas timber is just about the most rot resistant wood around. Also, our Industrial style rust treated metal frames are weather proof and good for use both indoors and out. And that’s what Ironfire is all about – making things so they can be kept for a very long time and are easily repaired and refreshed.

Avalon Interiors add a special touch

Sarah took our industrial Yakisugi Coffee table with it’s mix of Japan and Wiltshire, and made it something even more beautiful. It really stood out when she placed it amongst the other room settings in her shop. You’ll find all of the products shown in these photos at Avalon Interiors in the Westway Precinct in Frome, Somerset. Alternatively you can find Sarah via her website. Our Yakisugi industrial coffee table can be found on our products page. The Yakisugi burnt wood example shown in this pages images can be finished in lots of ways. Please email us or call for more info. We are always pleased to chat

Our Console Table Gets The “About The House” Treatment

Ironfire Industrial Style Console Table
Our Console Table is the IronFire furniture equivalent of the middle child; not always a necessity for a home like the oldest child and our Dining Table, and not the centre of attention like the youngest child and the Ironfire Coffee Table. It does, however, play an important part in the Ironfire furniture family and would be missed if not there. A Console Table is versatile and can be put into any situation and win – transforming a bleak, blank hallway into an interesting and useful space, or housing your media centre to juxtapose our industrial style with your modern day living. Slim enough to stand proudly in a narrow hallway or behind a sofa, the extra shelving that it provides can be used not just for storage but also to display attractive and useful ‘things’ to bring the Ironfire Console Table into play as a real eye-catching piece of IronFire furniture. We are experts in crafting tables, but to really show our Console Table off to it’s full potential, we brought an interiors expert in to showcase it to it’s best. Sarah-Jane Wright runs a full interior design consultancy in Warminster, Wiltshire and it’s from her shop, About The House, that the beautiful items she has dressed our console table with have come from. For more information about About The House and the interior services that Sarah-Jane offers, please visit aboutthe.house on Instagram, @Aboutthehouse.warminster on Facebook, or call Sarah-Jane on 01985 218882.

IronFire Versatility

Bistro Table & Chairs

Ironfire is so versatile

The beauty of Ironfire industrial furniture is not just in the seamless style or functional design, but also in the strength and versatility of the product itself. It’s not just a product for use in a domestic environment so if you’re looking to enhance your bistro, bar or cafe with stunning furniture that will withstand time and use, just let us know.

The galvanised steel, washable and UV stable fabrics and treated wooden table tops all mean that our products can withstand the most frequent use. Metal that doesn’t rust and can therefore be left outside, and just a simple wipe down to clean off marks and spillages, leaves our chairs and tables filling that gap in the market for furniture that works both inside and outside, and in both commercial and domestic environments. Styling wise, a modern urban bar interior matches the industrial style of our furniture like they were meant to be together, whereas a rustic rural bistro background will complement the straight lines and robust appearance that is synonymous with IronFire.

We have a wide palette of colour options available for table tops, but if you want something more bespoke – maybe a burnt finish to fit your brands colour scheme or your logo incorporated into the table top – our designers are on hand to work with you to create this.

Domestic or commercial, inside or outside, standard or bespoke. Versatile. That’s how to be more IronFire.

Many thanks to the Pythouse Kitchen Garden in Tisbury who allowed us to photograph our furniture (and eat their amazing cakes) in their orangery. For more information visit www.pythousekitchengarden.co.uk
