But these products have one minor drawback - they are quite heavy. So, for example, if you have linoleum on the floor, then such pieces of furniture will leave behind rather deep dents.
Blacksmiths for furnishing hallways offer a fairly wide range of forged furniture. The most popular ones are presented below.
This is perhaps the most necessary item in this room. She has several varieties:
This item is mounted on the wall and has hooks on which clothes are hung. Some types of these hangers are equipped with shelves for hats, some have mirrors built in. There are models that can replace a whole set of furnishings - they also include shoe racks for all of the listed items.
These hangers are a bar that is installed on the floor. It usually has three rows of hooks at different heights. The topmost row is for hats. Lower hooks are used to place outerwear, small umbrellas and bags are hung on the bottom row, and children's clothing is also placed. This attribute can also be combined with wicker baskets for storing small items or umbrellas.
Another of the necessary items in this room. It can be designed in the form of shelves or a sofa, at the bottom of which there are compartments where shoes are removed. The second item is quite comfortable, as it allows you to sit comfortably on it when shoeing.

On such a stool you can conveniently place a guest who is waiting for you in the corridor or sit down to take off his shoes after a long day of work. This item can also be made as a bench or sofa.
This item can be installed complete with a bench or separately placed as a shelf under a mirror. It will be convenient to put your purse on it and put gloves on while you dress or, conversely, undress.
Many people think that this product is more decorative in nature, but in reality this is not at all the case. In our country, it is customary to dry umbrellas in the unfolded state, but this is not correct. Such drying can ruin the given item, the fabric will stretch, and the umbrella will turn in the opposite direction when the wind gusts. They need to be dried when folded. A wrought iron basket will be a great helper here.
Moisture in this case will not spoil it, and the umbrellas will remain in good condition for a long time.
Mirrors in a frame decorated with artistic forging look very original in the hallway. It can be placed even in a room where there are no more similar elements. It will not overload the hallway, bring freshness and lightness to it.
What kind of interior will it fit?
Many people believe that wrought iron furniture is a piece for a classic room decor. But this is far from the case. It can be installed in almost any hallway interior:
So, in style rooms baroque and rococo products with many monograms are suitable. It is recommended to use white or black paint here. Items with gilding will also be appropriate. If it is a bench or an armchair, then the fabrics that cover these items should be rich and luxurious. Velvet, velor or handmade tapestry with gilded threads are perfect here
Country style it is also easy to support with wrought-iron furniture, as in the past such items were often used in the setting of houses in the village. Openwork backs of sofas and chairs, vintage hangers are preferred here
In modern it is allowed to combine forging with natural wood in furniture. In this case, metal makes the structure lighter, and solid wood adds chic to such items
For extra modern styles like hi-tech and loft forged products are also appropriate. But, of course, they are radically different from the classic version. Curls and monograms are unacceptable here, furniture should have simpler forms without puffiness. Fabrics are also used without glamor. An excellent option for covering banquets and sofas would be leather and matting
How to care?
Forged furniture for the hallway does not require special care. She is not afraid of moisture, so products can be wiped with a damp cloth. For serious contamination, you can use a soapy solution. But it is still not recommended to use substances with abrasive particles, as they can damage the coating and the product will lose its appearance.
Chlorine preparations should also be used with caution. Before using them, try the solution on a surface hidden from the eyes, and if the product is not damaged, treat it completely.
The cost of wrought iron furniture for the hallway is completely different. So, a simple galoshes with a banquet can be purchased for around 5,000 rubles. A small hanger can be purchased for 2,000 rubles.
The price of exclusive custom-made designer furniture will be quite high. It can go up to 100,000 rubles for a set for a hallway. But in this case, you gain confidence that you will not find repetition of products from anyone, and your interior will be unique.
