Decorative wrought-iron wall art is traditionally used in Mediterranean- and Tuscan-style homes, but can easily be incorporated into country, craftsman or modern decor. It's all about the pieces you choose.
Wrought Iron as Architectural Detail
Wrought-iron wall art can be especially powerful in a room that otherwise has no distinct architectural detail, and can provide visual interest in the most ordinary of rooms. The weight and texture of wrought iron brings with it a feeling of substance, a characteristic that can be absent from the average square, low-ceilinged room. In short, add wrought iron to rooms that need a bit of character.
Wrought Iron as a Focal Point
A wrought-iron wall hanging can be the focal point to a wall of design. A large square piece, for instance, can be surrounded by coordinating picture frames filled with black-and-white photos, or a series of small, rustic shelves.
Where to Find Wrought Iron
Wrought iron has been used for centuries, making it available in any number of places. Look for authentic pieces that interest you at antique shops, around old buildings that are being torn down, and at consignment shops. Garden stores and home decor shops offer new pieces that can also fit your decorating needs.
