Inspired by nature and unusual found objects, we make metal furniture, lighting, and decor with a vintage-industrial or farmhouse look and feel. We love the rusty patina of metal and original paint on the old artifacts that we collect and incorporate into our designs. We are located north of Atlanta near Chateau Elan in Winder, Georgia. The name Snodon Iron (pronounced "Snowden") was chosen to reflect the history of Winder. Snodon was the name of the Creek and Cherokee Indian trading center already established in this area when the first settlers entered northeast Georgia in the 1700's.
Mark and Lori Pressley are the husband and wife team and owners and creators of Snodon Iron. Atlanta native, Mark, has been interested in welding and fabrication for much of his life. Having worked most of his career as a commercial roofing contractor, his work has taken him to interesting places. From buildings and warehouses to old textile mills and manufacturing plants, cast-off artifacts have been collected. Lori left the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina for Atlanta, and with an eye for design and natural love for collecting, is the other half of this creative partnership.
We describe our style as vintage-industrial, or farmhouse style, with beautiful finishes that preserve the rusty patina of metal or original paint. We use recycled materials and re-claimed objects to make industrial or farmhouse lighting, decor and tables. By incorporating parts and pieces of old relics into our designs, we have the opportunity to create something new while giving an appreciative nod to the past. We feel that our creations lend themselves well to all types of design from contemporary to rustic, to traditional.
We love our customers, and would love for you to come and visit. We don't have a retail store, but we do have a lovely workshop and small showroom. We welcome customers to come by and pick up their purchase instead of shipping, or just take a look around and sit on the porch for a while. Since we are very likely to wander off and go to a barn or estate sale, or the local junkyard, please call and make sure we are at the shop or schedule a visit! 770.867.0574. We look forward to seeing you!
