The Forge

Allow the lights and torch of Nicolas Lehmann to brighten your knowledge of handcrafted Cape Town metalwork with his incredible creations. Working on a strictly commission-based system, his works include doors, fireplaces, balustrades, tables and chairs.

It is this aura of exclusivity that makes his work sought after both locally and internationally and has even led to TV appearances on shows such as Top Billing. The Forge, based in the suburb of Salt River, is both his showroom and his workshop. Lehmann does not only create but also restores, most notably in the restoration of the gates leading into the Montebello Design Centre. These had originally been imported from England in the early 1800s.
