Roman Cargo has been making exquisite iron and wood furniture since 2007. Our inspiration and name comes from the ancient Roman Ironworkers who forged and wrought the iron that created the Roman Empire. Our company had much more humble beginnings, as an extention of Circa Décor Trade, were we made custom furniture for our Interior design clients. The iron and wood furniture pieces made at the time was the origin of Industrial Chic in South Africa.
Our Industrial Chic range of furniture is masterfully crafted from iron and wood. Our reclaimed wood always has a beautiful rustic effect and our stained finishes are superb and unique to us.
Our designs are stunning and our ability to copy or replicate is amazing. Our ironworkers and carpenters are highly motivated master craftsmen.
Our classic style scroll work is unsurpassed and is made in the old tradition of forge and wrought and is created in fire. Our work is commissioned from our clients, Architects and top Interior Designers and is found in homes in many countries.
Roman Cargo pieces grace a magnificent castle in France and a loft apartment in bohemian Woodstock. Famous Cape Wineries and fashionable coastal spa’s, elegant Constantia homes and holiday houses in Plettenberg Bay.
We believe that we stand alone as the forerunner of Industrial Chic furniture fabrication in South Africa. Our pieces are unique and aesthetically awesome and have already become sought after collectables.
Beyond most things it gives us great pleasure to create.
