About Ironies Furniture
One of the most recognizable names in luxury furniture making is Ironies, founded by partners Kate McIntyre and Brad Huntzinger in the late eighties. Showcasing several of the most graceful collections in the designer furniture market, the work of McIntyre and Huntzinger has been described as “some of the most creative and elegant designs to be seen in national showrooms” by noted design reviewer Diane Saeks. Showrooms are spread across the U.S., from San Francisco to Chicago to New York.
The Company and Designers: Ironies Furniture began sometime in the 80’s, a furniture company founded by Kate McIntyre and Brad Huntzinger. The partners began by establishing a hand painting business, only to diversify into furniture making after the company failed to source the furnishings they required. Within a short time Ironies began offering a complete line of furniture known for their distinctive designs and comfortable construction. The designers of Ironies are partners and founders Kate McIntyre and Brad Huntzinger. Kate moved to California from her native New England, after finishing her English Literature and Fine Arts studies, and finally settled in the San Francisco Bay area. Brad Huntzinger, who grew up in a family of creative, self-governing folks, obtained his Interior Design degree in BYU and later helped establish the company as a partner. Focusing on fabrics and ceramics, Brad also works as one of the designers for Ironies Furniture.
The Furniture Collection: Ironies makes use of a variety of materials for their furniture, furnishings, lighting fixtures, and accessories. A few of their most distinct, signature materials are polished horn, iron, cast stone, wood, glass, and rough wood. While polished horn is a repurposed material, Ironies Furniture makes sure that each fragment is cut, heated, and shaped into the desired effect, and to achieve the right design. The famous Jaeger chandelier is made from polished horn, which produces a dreamy glow and a slow-swaying motion when lighted at night. Iron is one of the very first materials used by Ironies, when the company was established during the eighties. The company uses wrought iron and twig iron, which is patent protected as one of the signature materials by Ironies, in furniture construction. Other styles of iron include plasma-cut minimalist to hand-hammered and blacksmith iron. Many of the furniture selections by Ironies Furniture are also made using cast stone, which is also one of the signature materials by the brand. Through a unique construction process, their cast stone furnishings have a distinctive quality, style, and feel. Ironies Furniture makes use of cast stone in many of their furnishings, such as tables, countertops, headboards, and mirror frames.
