Behind the Design: Home Accessories

At From The Anvil, we’ve built a reputation for our quality craftsmanship of ironmongery and lighting. As we’ve grown and expanded, we were inspired to utilise our skills in other areas which led to the creation of our Home & Garden range, including our cosy collection of log holders, boot racks and fireside companion sets.

Boot Racks

Our boot racks are designed to store multiple pairs of boots or wellies upside down to prevent clutter and allow air flow through your footwear. These products are commonly used to tidy up porches and hallways.

Each boot rack consists of parallel rows of rods at two different heights, with each rod topped by a Hammered Ball finial for coordination with our Rectangular log holders. Choose between a larger rack which can hold up to six pairs of boots and a slightly smaller style with room for four pairs. Both sizes are crafted from mild steel and are available in our classic Pewter and Matt Black finishes.

Log Holders

We developed our log holders as a practical yet elegant storage solution for cut firewood. Keep a small supply of logs inside to save yourself taking constant trips to an outdoor wood store.

Forged from mild steel, these products are incredibly weighty and durable, giving them strength to hold plenty of logs; sturdy and wobble-free, with no assembly required. The open edge design of our log holders also creates the ideal conditions for wood storage, providing adequate ventilation to keep them dry and prevent damp.

Our classic Rectangular log holder features three sets of parallel lines with a Blacksmith Twist on each side. Each corner is finished with a Hammered Ball finial, designed to match our existing Hammered products. This refined style is ideal for tying a room together.

Alternatively, we have a Curved log holder which has a playful frame with rounded edges and a symmetrical shape. Each side of the holder gently hugs the logs to keep them securely in place. This product is available in a small and large size, enabling you to choose the option that works best for your home. Our Curved log holder works perfectly in contemporary and traditional properties alike.

Companion Sets

No fireplace would be complete without a companion set. Equipped with a selection of tools including a shovel, brush, poker, and tongs, these sets are an all-in-one practical solution for fire maintenance. Each set is hand forged from a base of mild steel, ensuring they’re both robust and long-lasting.

Our Arc companion set features a tall, arched stand which holds each tool adjacent to one another. This sleek design has a weighty base that keeps the entire structure stable and is available in our Pewter and Matt Black finishes.

Our Spiral companion set features a delicately twisted stand which adds an interesting focal point to any fireplace. The solid steel base provides stability for the upper part of the stand where the tools are positioned around a circular centre. Our Spiral companion set is available in our Pewter and Matt Black finishes.

Both the Spiral and Arc sets are available with our Avon tools. These feature a symmetrical, four-sided design which is created by hand with a series of traditional hammer blows and well-suited to contemporary and traditional interiors alike. Our Avon tools are complemented by our existing range of Avon door and window furniture and are offered in Pewter or Matt Black.

Our companion sets can also be provided in Matt Black with a set of Hinton tools, which boast an ornate reeded handle and matching brass knuckle. This distinctive Georgian design works particularly well in period properties with inglenook fireplaces and can be paired with our existing range of Hinton products.
