Elegance and a sense of history define Old World design style. Here at Timeless Wrought Iron we feel deeply connected to that history and our own roots that grow deeply into the past, in the history of hand-forged wrought iron. We are proud to offer some of the highest quality iron furniture, fireplace accessories and decorative objects available.
Today, we would like to explore several types of wrought iron tables that can enhance the beauty of Old World spaces—from entrance hall to master bath and lots of rooms in between. Here are a few of the hallmarks of Old World design:
- Elaborate scrolled wrought iron
- Soft warm creams and deep vibrant hues including green, blue, wine and browns
- Elaborate draperies, bedding and upholstered pieces
- Easily recognizable architectural elements like arched doorways and beamed ceilings
- Distinctive dark or lovely aged cabinetry and woodwork
See how those Old World elements work in real life:
Wrought iron abounds in this Old World style entrance hall. A large iron console table works beautifully with a tall ornate mirror—iron plays well with other materials.
Tables that are being hand-forged today can merge seamlessly into Old World style décor, creating a visually interesting mix of old and new elements.
Fireplace stone and wool rug lighten this Old World living room with a palette of pale colors. A trio of nesting tables with wrought iron bases brings an updated look and visual lightness to the space.
Not all Old World style kitchens are dark and handsome, some boast warm creamy aged paint, tile and stone floors. Here an ornate wrought iron table is the focal point of one such kitchen.
Love the look of a white dining room, but want to keep Old World charm? A long wrought table with thick glass top, along with a massive low hung iron chandelier can help you do just that. The pair of ornate side chairs is extraordinary and makes a big contribution to the room’s design.
Textured walls, wrought iron wall art with mirror hung in front and a console table turned bathroom vanity create Old World charm in a new powder room.
A single tiered wrought iron accent table shows off iron’s delicate side in this elaborate Old World style bath.
Wrought iron tables, both dining (occasional and accent) and chairs are ideal for an Old World home’s exterior living spaces.
The Iron Scroll Accent Table with Hammered Copper Top from Prima Designs is Old World perfection in a wrought iron table. From an impressive iron base to its stunning copper table top, this round accent table will be a beautiful addition to any Old World room.
