Country living - ironwork for modern rustic homes

Cosy country cottages, town houses with rural style, rambling renovated farmhouses and historic properties with a little flair - we are pleased to supply wrought ironwork for all our kinds of modern rustic homes. See our Ecklands lights in this gorgeous Peak district kitchen renovation.

Our lighting and curtain poles are handmade and made-to-last. Designed in fact to suit contemporary country living with an edge. We supply the owners of modern rustic properties with wall lights, pendants, lanterns, lamps, spotlights, curtain poles, pan rails, towel rails and more.

Huthwaite - modern rustic lighting

Nigel Tyas blacksmiths use traditional metalworking techniques and materials to design and produce robust modern lighting which is sympathetic to period interiors, easy to install and compatible with low-energy, money-saving LED bulbs.

Our modern rustic interpretations of traditional designs suit the character and appearance of modern rustic properties; and the 21st century lifestyles of those who live in them.


All our lighting is handmade in our forge and wired in our electrical workshop. From start to finish we make the lighting you need, with options on size, finish, cable colour and fittings. We have years of experience working directly with customers and their interior design consultants to ensure we deliver the lighting you need.

Spotlights-modern-rusticHome is where the heart is and we want you to love every Nigel Tyas product you incorporate into your modern rustic, country-style interior whether it’s a Silkstone reading lamp beside your comfy chair, a wrought iron pan rail in the kitchen, a stunning ceiling light for the stairwell or wrought iron curtain poles dressed with stylish drapes in your sitting room.


If you are renovating a cottage or refurbishing, we can help. Over the years, we have helped many customers restoring period and listed properties. We make modern rustic lighting and curtain poles which are both sympathetic to the character of country homes and meet any challenges involved in fitting to irregular walls and ceilings.


Please call us on 01226 766618 Or arrange a visit to the showroom, when it re-opens, to see our products ‘in the metal’. We are happy to discuss your lighting and interior needs.
