Handcrafted Wire Furniture
Ico wire furniture is designed by Miranda and is exclusive to Ico Traders. Many hours of thought has gone into each design, creating simple & multi functional furniture & homewares.
The simpleness of the designs allow them to outlast fashion trends, sitting comfortably within all interior & outdoor styling. While so many of todays products are disposable, our aim is to make timeless designs, that can be passed from one generation to the next.
Each design is manufactured in the same factory in China that we have used since our business first started in 2012. Every wire is shaped and spot welded using a traditional hand crafted method, to create both strength, comfort and style. The wires are placed closely together for seating and surprise all with how comfortable they are. Cushions are aesthetically pleasing, but totally not necessary.
Our wire furniture has a PVDF base coat for heat & rust resistance, then they are powdercoated in Ico Traders exclusive colour range (or custom coloured on request). This means they can be used both inside and in sheltered outdoor areas. Our beautiful but harsh New Zealand climate does mean that care is needed for furniture – especially near ocean winds. The more you care for your furniture, the longer it will last. If you do live close to the coast, or in an area of high humidity or rainfall, we recommend you invest in our stainless steel range.
Caring for your Wire Furniture
Iron is a sustainable resource and easily recyclable, making it an obvious choice of material for our wire. Many of our larger products require a minimum amount of assembly (attaching of legs). We have purposely designed them as such, so they can be packed in boxes of two, making them easy to ship and thereby minimizing our carbon footprint. We are committed to considering issues of environmental impact and responsible manufacturing processes. Our workforce is treated with the utmost respect and our facilities minimise waste whenever possible.
