Philadelphia’s Wrought Iron Railings
Through the 1700-1800s Pennsylvania was known for being an iron rich state, so much so that iron became a huge part of our architectural history as a region. That’s why many homeowners today opt for beautiful iron elements to accent their home’s driveways, walkways or staircases. It’s a nod to classic Philadelphia architecture and a great way to make a property look new and traditional all at the same time.
Wrought iron specifically has greater corrosion resistance than other materials, so it’s a practical choice as well as an aesthetic one when it comes to designing your outdoor railings. When our clients ask us to design a custom wrought iron railing for their home, we first get a sense of their style by asking them to take a look through our portfolio. Here are a few of our favorite wrought iron railings:
Classic elegance. This railing is complex and ornate and almost becomes the focal point of the porch given the simplicity of the pillars. Our skilled craftsmen are able to create beautifully intricate designs to match your decor vision.
Traditional with a twist. At first glance, this design looks like a very classic style railing, but upon looking closer, you’ll notice the very modern flair to this railing. Paired with the classic stone architecture of this home, the exterior of the property gets an update, making it look both fresh and traditional.
Modern whimsy. Sometimes, your aesthetic calls for something off the beaten path. For a garden stairway surrounded by lush greenery, you may want something less formal. Our custom repousse metal work, which is something of a lost art in our industry, can add an element of delight to your railing.
