Craftsmanship Matters

  • Craftsmanship- “the quality of design and work shown in something made by hand; artistry.”

Craftsmanship is something you can’t fake. We believe in reviving craftsmanship here at Iron Age office.  Here are a few reasons why:

 

It’s Art

Here at Iron Age Office we don’t believe in one-size fits all office desk furniture. Every piece we send out the door is one-of-a-kind because of our use of raw materials.  You can’t replicate the patina of our legs because, we can’t even replicate them.  This one-of-a- kind way of doing things turns office furniture from a cookie-cutter production into an art. We believe that desk should empower their employees. Turning the production of a desk into an art form is one reason we do things differently. We never want something to leave our doors that we don’t take pride in. We believe in meticulous craftsmanship. That is why we want to change the way people look at office furniture. To us it is an art.  

 

Last Longer

When we send something out our workshop doors we want this piece to last a lifetime. That is why we build everything to order. Flimsy office furniture is not in our vocabulary.  Our use of steel and butcher block is not just for looks. We want our products to last for a lifetime, not just until your next office move.  Desks should make an employee want to take on the day. A flimsy desk that doesn’t hold up to the stresses of the office and work doesn’t do that. Employees can tell when their office furniture  has been around for 30 years and is on its last leg. We never want that to be a problem with our desk. We believe our desks can last for as long as your company is around, if not longer!

 

A True Experience

When you get to decide what your desk will look like down to the stain, it makes for an experience. You are not just choosing a pre-selected desk. We don’t have hundreds of desks sitting around our workshop. We build everything to order. This is because you desk is custom to you. That means something to us. Customers get excited when their desk is on the way to them (and even before)! This is because they are proud of what the purchased, and what this desk means. Our furniture is bold, we want our customers to bold as well. When someone orders a piece from us we want them to feel like they had the Iron Age Office Experience.

 

IAO belief in reviving craftsmanship is in our core. We never want to be another one-size fits all office furniture source. Craftsmanship is an art and we want that art to last for years to come. The Iron Age Experience is different just like our office furniture.
