The Service Vision:
When asking where to buy industrial furniture online, we believe people value dealing direct with a friendly, straightforward company with a 24 year history, making their products their own and saving money by excluding retailers. At the same time, we give and end to end service delivering and assembling in your premises with our own staff. Apart from delivery costs, what we quote is what you pay – no hidden costs and no couriers.
We know that people worry about buying furniture online, so before we deliver we send you close-up images of your items, ensuring approval from the customer at every stage of the process.
Ecologically responsible designed industrial furniture that uses only natural finishes and materials, designed and produced in our workshop which is based in Wiltshire. Our industrial furniture range includes dining tables, bistro tables, coffee tables, console tables, pendant lighting, chairs, firepits and planters – all made from sustainable materials that complement each other.
We admire Scandi thinking, but we’re British and source as much as humanly possible here. We reduce transport miles by using sustainable UK products and keep prices affordable by selling directly, thus building relationships with our customers.
We are committed to longevity. Every IronFire Industrial Furniture product is built from Galvanised steel and coated with architectural quality powder coating. Find out more about our material options and why we use them on our materials page.
We laminate Douglas fir boards that we’ve treated against rot (Douglas is just about the longest lasting timber outside) and lay them on top of each other in different directions for strength while also using waterproof bonding, stainless steel fixings and marine caulking.
Natural materials react to their environment and so wood expands and shrinks in direct relation to the moisture content of its surroundings. Our Douglas fir is is dried to average conditions, and by coating it we slow down the equalisation of humidity. We also construct our industrial style wooden table tops to allow for movement and for small gaps between the boards to grow and shrink. It’s therefore easy to loosen the boards and realign them as desired.
The range of tabletop finishes is endless; we can print graphics and apply them to the underside of glass so that they can be changed easily, we can powder coat wood with hardwearing lacquer finishes, we can make shou Sugi-ban burnt finishes, we can create a unique rust effect or cut in sheet materials…the choice is yours but whatever you decide on, it is always easy to upgrade at a later date if required.
All industrial dining, coffee, console and bistro tabletops are either finished with breathable paints, hardwearing UV proof varnishes for longevity both inside or in the garden, or polished with a natural wax for a rich burnish and glow – all to each customers individual requirements.
We know that sometimes the littlest touches mean the most, so for this reason our flanges and edgings on steelwork have safe edges and the undersides of event tables have rubber trim to prevent scratching the arms of chairs. Similarly, our chairs have glide surfaces fitted so they slide easily without scratching floors and tables have rubber floor protection.
Glass and protective covers are optional extras. The glass is 5mm thick toughened with polished edges and covers fit over the set and fix to fittings on the bottoms of the chairs. Cushions are fire retardant and available with cotton washable covers or soft water resistant material which has a quality fabric feel.
Our Furniture might be strong, heavy duty and industrial style, but at IronFire we like to leave a light ecological footprint, making treasured things at affordable prices with an approachable, personal service.
It’s who we are, not who we are trying to be!
