Welcome to Iron Chinchilla! We are a unique home accessories company with designs conceived and custom fabricated by Ft. Worth artist Patrick Neuwirth. Started in 2001, we set out to give our customers an option to the imported, “cookie-cutter” designs offered at large retailers. With a passion for uniqueness and dedication to quality craftsmanship, we have made our mark across the country by word of mouth from our amazing customers! You can purchase directly from the website and have it drop-shipped to yourself or as a gift or you can come visit our studio and meet the artist!
MEET THE ARTIST
Patrick first started bending metal into “Functional Art” in 1992 while working as a welder in his home town of Des Moines, IA. It didn’t take long for his hobby to draw the eye of the owner at the hip Asian restaurant where he was a bartender in the evenings, resulting in his first “real” job designing and fabricating 30 tables for their new dining room – not a bad start for someone with no art or design degree. The tables were such a hit, he set up shop in a friend’s garage and began self marketing his unique spin on furniture.
