hear what designers, architects, project managers and home owners have to say about ironwood designs and the work we do.
“In the last two years we have completed two large projects using Ironwood Designs for the ornamental ironwork. Their scope of work was diverse and included crafting ornamental metal fences, gates and balcony rails, decorative lanterns, decorative grilles, trellis components and awning spears. Sam Demachkie worked patiently with the designers to understand their vision and was then able to produce finished products that exceeded their expectations. All of these elements were custom made and executed to meet our schedule. The quality is outstanding. The clients and designers are thrilled with both the uniqueness of the various elements, and the superb craftsmanship. We look forward to using Ironwood Designs again on future projects.” john russell

“Working with Sam Demachkie of Ironwood Designs on the restoration of the Marjorie Luke Theatre was a positive experience. Sam added to the overall success of the project with his artistry and technical knowledge and was a pleasure to work with. Sam restored existing light fixtures and also created a large number of new fixtures which feel as if they are original to the 1930's era building. The custom designed Kiosk at the entrance to Santa Barbara Junior High School is absolutely beautiful and both blends in with and enhances this historic landmark building.” dawn sophia ziemer, leed ap

“Sam Demachkie and his team of artists at Ironwood Designs were Dream Team players with the highly successful renovation of the Marjorie Luke Theatre. Others told us it was not possible to create the fixtures we needed for The Luke. Ironwood made it happen. Their award-winning work, created with great skill, care and passion, is the jewelry of this historic landmark theatre. Wrought iron design and fabrication just does not get any better!” rod lathim
