Ironware International

The forger Pierre Picard was apprenticed to a Romanian blacksmith in 1956 while still a boy. He established his atelier in Normandy a decade later and the French government bestowed him the title Maitre Artisan in 1989. His son-in-law (and former apprentice), after taking over Picard Atelier, now runs the offspring design-manufacture company Ironware International. The atelier produces, in addition to lyrical sconces and chandeliers, attenuated bedsteads and side tables in a variety of trés-French styles. Showrooms nationwide.
