The current interior and exterior trends tend towards an ever increasing emphasis on the natural and dramatic and with PJ designs in Drumkeen, you can encompass both with the award winning expert craftsmanship of P.J. Patton who was a winner in the Entrepreneurship awards 2005.
Boasting 30 year’s background in the welding trade, P J has established his own steel furniture and accessories business in Drumkeen. He is inviting the public to come directly to his craft centre to view his individually, hand crafted products and examine his portfolio of Staircases, Gates & Railings which can also be viewed on apartment blocks, banks, hotels and private residence
Having applied his craft to the general welding trade for 30 years P J observed a niche in the market for steel furniture in the North West. Matching craft with design he has to date designed and created an impressive variety of items, his most spectacular work is probably seen in his chandeliers, staircases, iron gates and railings but his skill and experience is evident throughout the entire range of quality-crafted products, this includes hall and coffee tables, standard lamps, candelabras, fire fenders, bedroom furniture, curtain poles, coat stands, mirrors, candleholders and bespoke pieces.
Just recently his designs were featured on “Whose Design Is It Anyway” on TV3 and in “The Irish Garden” magazine.
His business currently runs in tandem, with his work on display in furniture and craft shops as well as available directly from his Drumkeen base.
For those who are particularly drawn to the wrought iron work, the appeal of dealing directly with the craftsman is obvious. You can discuss your needs and requirements with P. J., who will in turn marry your vision with his craft, allowing for a unique piece of furniture or decoration.
Although many people in the northwest will have seen this unique style of furniture and design nationally in recent years they will not have had the opportunity to view the design of a Donegal native supplying their own area, and further afield.
The advantages which his location can offer are obvious- he is available to display his products, discuss his work and “match your needs with his designs” to allow for greater flexibility than shop buying allows.
Although his products are available in some stores across the northwest, his local location means greater accessibility and greater freedom of design and greater satisfaction in determining the final product.
