Early American iron furniture shoppers review antique iron beds, wrought iron furniture and ironwork for both exterior and interior design.
It's an honor to share the last name with John B. Wickersham, the most influential decorative iron pioneer and patent holder from the mid-1800's in New York. John B. Wickersham's patented ironwork can still be found in famous historic buildings around the US. It's unclear if or how the two Wickersham iron furniture designers are related.
James L. Wickersham
Founder & Furniture Designer
After founding a luxury furniture ecommerce company and one of the largest wholesale buyers of iron beds and luxury furniture over the last two decades, I grew frustrated with the supply chain. Prices increased while quality decreased even for high-end manufacturers and many went out of business. Few furniture manufacturers sell to consumers, and typically five to ten entities, often outdated, adding no value are paid royalties, commission, tariffs or markup prices ultimately shorting consumers with lower quality.
We designed the world's finest iron bed and own the molds and rights, exclusively selling direct-to-consumers and interior designers. By streamlining the supply chain, we are able to build a superior iron bed, thicker and heavier with foundry poured castings, all made in the US. Each iron bed is hand-painted in multiple steps and baked-on in a powder coat finish process, achieving an unbelievable timeless dark bronze matte finish with a slightly aged patina. Each iron bed is numbered and includes a certificate of authenticity and digitally archived by the company. The company takes great pride in premium service and is highly efficient with technology, headquartered in Sonoma County, California, the North Bay Wine Country in the San Francisco Bay Area.
