Achla Designs has been crafting wrought iron gear for garden and home since 1994. Led by inspiration found in long-established, European ironwork of the past, Achla Designs pieces are hand made using traditional hammer and anvil techniques to create pieces notable for their individuality embodying hand welded and hand forged methods including Achla Designs own innovative snap on method of construction which is accomplished without use of hardware or screws.
Each piece offered by Achla Designs is independently crafted to exacting specifications to fashion a durable, functional and attractive wrought iron piece which conforms to the standard for hardiness, vigor and grace of form.
I have long admired wrought iron work, and am well pleased with the pieces I have acquired. This particular plant stand is particularly attractive, the powder coating finish adds durability, and rust resistance, 4 sturdy legs with curved, upturned feet are designed to avoid marring floor.
One nice aspect I have found with use of wrought iron and other metal wire pieces is that the pieces, unlike many other produced via other medium including wood, though eclectic in nature do blend nicely one with another whether crafted by the same artisan, or produced by a variety of artists. I like that.
When I find a wrought iron piece I like during my jumble shop forays; I do not worry whether the piece will fit or not, I do not have that same confidence when I locate a pretty piece crafted of wood.
I find the half round shelves featuring a modified greek key design, offset, to be particularly attractive. Because the material used is wrought iron, each shelf is well suited to holding a pot of attractive greenery, African violets, or whatever the enthusiast may want to display. I like to place pots of flowering cultivars on the shelves in my classroom during the school year. Students and I enjoy walking into the class room with pretty blossoms greeting us as we enter.
Happy to recommend Achla Designs' Iris Plant Stand
