In his downtown Atlanta studio, artist David Adams works with steel, reclaimed wood, glass and other elements to create timeless designs with modern functionality.

The company: Founded in 2010, Atlanta-based Mill and Forge specializes in one-of-kind pieces, such as lighting and tables, for homes, offices and restaurants.
The founder: Born and raised in the Los Angeles area, Adams struck his first welding arc at the age of 10. He’s been hooked on fusing and shaping metal ever since.
Inspiration: The craftsmanship from the post Industrial Revolution era, specifically 1920’s-1940’s, and the Art Deco movement. “I am inspired by purposeful design and functional beauty,” said Adams.
The goods: Tables ($1,565 and up), lighting ($345 and up) and fireplace accessories ($1,685 and up).
What’s hot: Hand-forged fireplace screens and fireplace tools. Also console tables.
Claim to fame: A pair of steel chandeliers were featured in the 2014 Decorators Show House, Palazzo Rosa in Buckhead.
Unusual or fun requests: Making a base for a hand, inlaid marble top that took 80 man-days to build.
Up next: Creating a signature line of Art Deco/industrial-style home furnishings. Building stools and table bases for restaurants in Florida and Washington, DC.
