Metal can make you look like a badass, unless of course that metal comes from Stryper, in which case you'll just look God awful. Incorporating metal into your pad, Get Bent.
From some north-of-the-border cats with a passion for metalwork, GB crafts both functional home goods & artistic pieces from handforged steel and wrought iron, solving the conundrum for any interior designer who's wrestled with iron chic. Among the creations are a pair of lamps resembling octopuses -- one symmetrical, the other angularly slinking -- with the bulb portion functioning as the body; another lamp crafted as an odd-looking, almost pineapple-shaped spaceship; and a chromed-steel sculpture of a hamburger with copper "cheese" -- good to see it back after the failure of Cop Rock. They're also taking care of fireplace needs with intimidating spike-topped grates, tool sets with heavily textured, distressed handles, and a portable fish-themed firepit with legs and airholes shaped like pikes, appropriate, as Pikes are frequently a holes.
Rounding out the badassery's a series of gun sculptures done to resemble...guns, but of course, they don't actually fire, making your only prayer of protecting yourself... actual prayer, cue the Stryper!
