Paul Shepherd - A Passion For Artistry

Forged Elegance is a company located in Bend, Oregon and born from a passion for handmade, unique items. Paul Shepherd’s determination drove his creativity to new heights.  As Paul explored different elements using chemical reaction and heat, he was able to expand his knowledge and love for the trade. 


With the support of his family, Paul has continued his passion for artistry using a combination of antique barnwood paired with forged steel that generates an elegant product. Forged Elegance has transformed two contrasting pieces into beautiful, captivating furnishings to fill your home. This process takes an extensive amount of time, patients and strength to hammer hot metal, sand vintage barnwood to a smooth finish and weld each piece to perfection. 


Forged Elegance offers an array of furniture to include; bedroom sets, couches, tables, chairs, large mirrors and one-of-a-kind pieces.  You’ll never know what Forged Elegance will dream up next.  Get in touch to learn more about the process and to see what we can do for you.
