Wrought Iron Lounge Chairs – Although used as a general term to describe period and historical design, ‘vintage’ actually refers to the 1940s and 1950s. Vintage can be described as nostalgia, from an era that most people can remember since childhood or at least their parents/grandparents. This style is not easy to define because it is the wrong little game.
Post-war wrought iron lounge chairs from the 40s and 50s include family heirlooms, hand drops, with make-do-and-fix attitudes. The goods of different eras are therefore incorporated. Wrought-iron furniture is often seen when passed down to the next generation of industrial revolutions and Victorian times. Massive trends exploded in the 1920s in America thanks to designers such as John B Salterini, Lee Woodward, and Joseph Leinfelder. Salterini has great influence; a medieval designer from New York who popularized wrought iron furniture. He was a craftsman emigrating from Italy and from 1928 to 1953 made quality indoor and outdoor iron furniture.
These include very decorative wine racks, French-inspired wrought iron lounge chairs, cocktail tables, love chairs and candle holders. This inevitable trend makes their way across the oceans to England where intricate designs are seen in the homes of high society across the country. Every style from Rococo to Gothic enjoys a resurrection in the Victorian era. The best way to describe the period decor is luxury and luxury. Wrought-iron furniture is very popular due to the fact that it can be ‘worked out’ into intricate complicated designs. The industrial revolution has enabled mass production of materials.
