Design Ideas | Wrought Iron Italy

So last summer I was in Italy: Rome, Tuscany, Venice. And this trip was extremely inspirational, especially for wrought iron work I saw everywhere. Their wrought iron is so much more interesting than what we have here in good old USA, no surprise, and much of it was so modern even in the oldest cities. I suppose it has to be great to stand out there. The door above is one of my absolute favs! The design motif is the purest – circle. But take a look at what else was there, just waiting to be appreciated. It was a feast for the eyes, especially in Venizia where wrought iron was everywhere we turned on every bridge and door. I will be thinking about these patterns for a long time.
