Address Plaques and Drapery Medallions - Iron Works

outdoor drapery rods 1Memorial Day weekend, the kids are getting out of school and everyone is busy planning their fun summer activities!  Spending time outside is a rite of passage of the summertime and in recent years the outdoor living room has emerged as a popular home design trend.  An outdoor area can consist of anything from an outdoor patio with a table and chair set to elaborate outdoor living areas that include feature furniture, outdoor drapes and hardware and other décor items.

Outdoor drapery and hardware are also gaining in popularity.  If you haven’t discovered this outdoor accessory yet, they serve multiple purposes.  Use them to divide a large outdoor area into smaller, separate spaces when you are entertaining guests as it creates a cozy atmosphere. Hanging curtains will give you more cooling shade on sunny days.  It will also help to prolong the life of your outdoor furniture.

As great as outdoor drapes can be there are a few things you must be aware of prior to using them in your outdoor living room.  Due to being exposed to the elements for prolonged periods of time it is important to choose not only drapes that are weather resistant, but also drapery rods and other necessary hardware.  Be sure to use drapery hardware that is specifically designed to be used in outdoor situations.  Metropolis Iron’s large line of outdoor drapery medallions and hardware will stand the test of time in even the harshest weather that summertime can throw it’s way!

real sea shell cornice mount drapery medallionsHere at Metropolis Iron we are always trying to design new products and refine time tested products to fit certain decorating niches or peak new design ideas for the end user.  We recently introduced our line of authentic drapery medallions into the world of cornice mount applications for interior designers, drapery workrooms and distinctive homeowners.    Our real seashell drapery medallions were already beautiful and functional all on their own.  We wanted our customers to also have the ability to add them to a cornice board as well.  The result is a cornice board and drapery medallions that will add beauty and depth to any coastal or beach design.

Not many drapery hardware companies accommodate customers by converting their products to a cornice mount application, however, almost all of our drapery medallions are easily convertible.  This allows our customers to dress their cornice boards up in a way never before possible.  If you do not see a style that you like, we can make anything that you wish.  Just give us a drawing, picture, or even a template of an existing cornice that you already have and we will do our best to accommodate!
