Hand forged in Devon

Curtain Pole Specialists

We specialise in made to measure  curtain hanging solutions in wrought iron, stainless steel and oak. The business is based on the designs and craftsmanship of founder Daryl Ford. A blacksmith for over 30 years, Daryl started making curtain poles in 1993. From 1994 to 2005 he supplied the John Lewis Partnership with bespoke curtain poles. In 1996 Daryl invented the passing ring and bracket system to allow a single pair of curtains to be drawn around a bay window. In 2003 he patented his award winning flexible bend, part of a system which allows you to make up your own bay window pole at home.

Handmade in Devon

Our products are made in Devon using traditional artisan skills. Quality and durability are fundamental to our product range. We don't offer curtain poles with coloured finishes or metallic coating, because these tend to wear with time. Just quality materials with natural finishes. We produce our own designs and focus on classic, simple, elegant products with timeless appeal. We are a small artisan business, but our customers tell us that our products and service are outstanding.
