The term “wrought” in wrought iron symbolizes the amount of craftsmanship that has gone into forging and shaping the metal to its desired and current shape.  When you are using iron pieces in your decor, you are incorporating both traditional and modern elements in one piece alone.  The end result is minimalist effort that makes a significant impact and will last through many outdoor seasons making for a very worthwhile investment, even if you are doing so through one piece alone.
