The very first Earth Day occurred in 1970 and 43 years later, we continue to fight for Mother Earth and at Iron Accents, we don’t just celebrate Earth Day once a year. Our love for the environment and need to protect it is part of our everyday life. From the sustainable practices in our showroom to the product lines we carry, Mother Earth is always on our mind.
In fact, many of our manufacturers share in our love for the environment and partake in green practices. Several products we offer are handcrafted by talented blacksmiths and many may argue that blacksmiths were the first environmentalists. Not to mention the plethora of vintage finds and unique reclaimed works by artists using salvaged materials like ceiling tin and barn wood. These rescued treasures never met the landfill and resonate with a certain history as well as charm.

Reclaimed Wood Frames
Our Reclaimed Wood Frames are one of a kind and constructed using weathered wood and corrugated metal photo frames are individually created by hand using found pine, cedar and hardwoods. Since each piece of wood used is different the markings, slat widths, grain, knots, coloring, texture and overall dimension will vary slightly. A unique and versatile frame that’s eco-inspired and unlike any other!
