How About a Bespoke Laser Cut Fence?

Have a look at this elegant yet understated laser cut fence we recently designed and made for a house in North-West London. Using a classic design of an English rose, the fence makes the house the envy of all the neighbours. The gate includes a humorous reference to Number 10, making it clear that people of great taste and importance live here!

This gorgeous fence was custom designed and made. If you want to make the front of your own house this unique and beautiful, contact us and we would be more than happy to work with you to design something for your own abode. We can make any pattern or size that would fit both your house and your heart’s desire. Perhaps you might want your initials or your family crest, or your favourite flower. You might even want to go for something a bit more abstract. We’re open to suggestions.


If you would are interested in talking to us about creating a fence like this for your own home, then contact us to have a chat about what we could do for you. We’ll be happy to hear from you!

A closer look at garden gazebos

From BBQs to birthday parties, from music concerts to family meal times, everything is better when it can happen outside! The children can run barefoot on the grass, and we can all enjoy the sun on our faces. However, whether you need to shade from the sun or hide from the rain, a gazebo will always make an outdoor gathering a little more weather proof.

Gazebos are picturesque structures set outside, usually in parks or other public spaces, and often octagonal or turret-shaped. Amazingly, they have been around for several millennia, having been traced back to some of the earliest gardens in existence. They are mentioned in the early literature of China and Persia, and were common in Egyptian gardens of some 5,000 years ago. Some Egyptian royalty even considered their gazebos to be earthly paradises, which they wished to take to the afterlife with them.

Some of the early Persian gazebos were very opulent structures, boasting two floors, marble columns and even streams running through them to keep them cool. Impressive stuff! France and England joined in the gazebo craze in the 14th and 15th centuries. Famous British gazebos include those at Montacute House in Somerset, and Eton Hill in Nottinghamshire, both of which are worth a visit.

Of course, gazebos look great in private gardens as well as public spaces, and there’s a wide range of high quality, gorgeous gazebos to suit all price ranges available from Metal Design Furniture.

The Paris Gazebo is a particularly luxurious and elegant piece, which has the option to include a stylish wooden bench. Or if you’re tastes are a little simpler, why not go for the simple Classico Pergola, which you could use to create a green, growing roof over your garden. Whatever your tastes, there’s a Metal Design Furniture gazebo for you.
