A Look Back at The 2018 Architectural Digest Show


This year at the AD Show Compass Ironworks made a few changes to the presentation. We added a few new fencing pieces, as well as a few new railing samples, which gave clients and passersby a chance to see exactly what Compass can do. Contemporary, Neo-Classical, “Wrought”, and Custom seemed to really grab the attention of the attendees. The custom shaped bronze cap-rail really brought a lot of attention due to its fine details and imperfections, which gives it class, elegance, and a hand made look. We also showed off our wrought material taking round bar and hammering it into square, which adds a one of a kind authenticity.

As with previous years, we also brought an automated gate to show the security side of Compass Ironworks. Compass Iron Security displayed an array of fence samples as well as privacy panels. Attendees couldn’t help but be amazed as we opened the gate while they walked past. The gate, made of Aluminum, caught many by surprise as they had thought it was an Iron gate.

The theme this year seemed to be consistent with a modern or contemporary look. From the minimalist to the extravagant, the AD show had something to offer everyone. We had a great time talking with attendees and hope to have been informational and cheerful, bringing that Lancaster, PA feel to NYC : )
