Hendrik Wassenaar, General Manager, The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs

Set on 4,800 acres near Matauri Bay, Northland, The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs affords spectacular 180-degrees views of the Pacific Ocean. The main lodge, which overlooks the golf course and the Pacific Ocean, consists of a spacious beamed living room, meeting room, card room, dining room, computer room, fitness centre, proshop and extensive hallway.

Virginia Fisher who commissioned the Lawlers to produce two oversize chandeliers for our living room, two large chandeliers for our dining room and one very large lantern for our main entrance hallway designed for the interior of the Lodge.

Ken’s pieces are a statement in their own right and blend in beautifully in the colonial style of the Lodge. We receive an overwhelming amount of compliments about the pieces and we are obviously very happy with them.

The service we receive from Wrought Iron Specialists is superb and we are happy recommending their services and craftmanship to whoever requires uniquely handmade pieces of art from his workshop.

Catherine Morgan (Home Owner, Point View Heights)

 The new balustrades and handrails have totally transformed our house. Even though our entrance way is huge, it always felt like a cattle-shoot. Now it shows its true grandeur. Everyone comments on it immediately. The hallway has now become the central focus of our house; certainly providing an instant “wow” factor.  We recommend the Wrought Iron Specialists team, who were courteous, friendly, and very quick to have their work finished, and offered us the perfect solution to our needs.

Thank you guys…

We are thrilled with the wrought iron in our home made by this very talented father and son team. Not only are they perfectionists of their craft, they are passionate and thoughtful about their creations and it shows. Thank you Kenny and Ian!

Virginia Fisher, Interior Designer

I’m delighted to advise that I have commissionaed Classical Creations who are owned by the Lawler family to create many different custom designed products for prestigious projects for the last twenty years.

These sometimes complex products have varied from chandeliers, bathroom vanities, tables, fences, handrails, gates and lanterns. These products have been placed in high end lodges and homes in New Zealand and offshore.

The quality of the work is unequaled and the team works well with producing original and complex products. I would be happy to recommend them to anyone requiring customized metalwork.

From concept to completion their attention to detail and craftsmanship is what makesthem stand out from their competitors. Over the years of working with Ian and Ken we have created anumber of bespoke commissions often from very few details. With their knowledge and guidance we havecreated a number of exceptional items from metal art, furniture to security gates and every piece just asspectacular as the last. When under the pressure of a heavy work load their quality has never faulted,deadlines have arrived and they have met them. Thank you Ian and Ken for another year of spectacularwork.
