Black Ironmongery & Modern Homes = The Perfect Match

Black Ironmongery is usually associated with period homes and traditional interior styles, however black door and window furniture is now an on-trend alternative to your standard fittings.

Here are some examples of Kirkpatrick Black Ironmongery in modern homes.


Pairing Black Ironmongery with pastel shades is the perfect combination. This stunning storage unit has been painted with a Farrow and Ball grey and finished off with Kirkpatrick Black triple peg coat hooks.

Adding a simple product like our hat and coat hook creates a design statement that is simple yet eye catching.

Alternatively, our black coat hooks can be used to create a quirky feature for hanging items around your home. Here our Blacksmith Forge Hat and Coat hooks have been used to create a unique wall feature.
