ALL THE WROUGHT IRON STAIR RAILINGS WE MAKE ARE UNIQUE.
We do not have a standard model, preferring to create for each customer a personalized ramp, adapted to tastes, desires and places.
Because this type of project is not common, it deserves some attention! The realization of this project required more than 300 hours of workshop work without counting the time of reflection and development.
t all started with the visit of Mr and Mrs L. in Niort, who asked me to make them a guardrail and a banister for their staircase and mezzanine. Initially, they left me free, without specific instructions, certainly to test me! After several preliminary draft and sketches, I decided on a model. I present to them and, what was my reaction when they asked me for even more originality! So I study again to finally result from the main lines of the “Tree and Nature” ramp…
For the “Tree” part, it is useless to explain why. As for the “Nature” part, it results in the implantation of various decorative (and forged) elements such as a bird’s nest with its eggs, a spider’s web watched by an attentive lizard, processionary caterpillars, birds posed on a branch or taking flight… In short, the little story of life! As for the leaves, forged one by one, we made nearly 250!
Very often, it is enough to create a model for us to be asked to reproduce it or more precisely, to be inspired by it.
We therefore made 2 stairs railing inspired by a model that we had installed in 2016 (photo on the right), itself very inspired by the Art Deco period of the Roaring Twenties (1920-1931).
And yet, these two stair railingare very different…
Of “classic” inspiration, this stair railing fits perfectly with its environment.
The bars are made of 14mm round iron covered with a ring that we have modified and surmounted by a steel sphere.
The decorations are forged, screwed together.
Polyurethane paint finish and color patina.
This library was made in Pays de la Loire.
The drawing, the study and the realization were carried out by the workshop of Julien Lachaud, cabinetmaker in Nieul sur l’Autize.
We intervened for all the ironwork necessary to maintain this gigantic structure: reinforcement consoles of the landing, guardrail and banister of the staircase.
All assemblies are screwed.
It was very interesting work both in the joint design with Julien to ensure the solidity of the work and in the search for the best aesthetic compromise in order to harmonize these 2 materials, wood and steel.
The realization of this banister required many hours between the study, the tests and the realization.
The structure was painted black, the forged elements were patinated, varnished and waxed.
We also insert some brass balls.
We favored simple and geometric shapes, playing on the texture of the profiles.
Installed on a stone staircase on a Saracen vault, this ramp is very inspired by the Art Deco period.
Under the stairs, rather than closing it with a low wall, we preferred with the clients to create a glass roof in the same sense, integrating colored glass and forged decoration.
Spotlights have been installed along the steps of the stairs as well as under the stairs to sublimate the whole.
This wrought iron stair railing was installed in a gite in the Deux-Sèvrienne countryside.
The design had to fit in with the spirit of the house, without imposing a defined style.
We have therefore juggled between the past, the present and the future, while remaining sober and, I hope, elegant… Perhaps we can call it a “Neo-country” style?
The ball of the starting post is engraved and aged. Patinated steel finish.
