The Perfect Chain-Link Fence


Demakersvan’s Lace Fence. Someday in the future, my backyard will be regraded and landscaped into a sun garden. And at that time, I will have to decide on a fence type. I’ve ruled out the typical wood stockade, because it’s ugly, hostile, blocks breezes, and keeps my dogs from seeing out and my neighbors from seeing in. I would like to share my garden visually with those who walk or drive by. Decorative iron fencing is not an option, because of the expense and the lack of interesting design options. “Boring” is a good word for this type.


So I’ve decided that if the price is within my budget, the Dutch Design House of Demakersvan’s Lace Fence is the choice for my backyard. It combines the ancient craft of lace making with the industrial chain-link fence. With design options ranging from antique lace floral to contemporary designs and custom art patterns, Lace Fence illustrates how something utilitarian can also be decorative. Hostility versus kindness, industry versus craft.

      I found this source by accident. I think. I don’t remember now. It might have been through one of those serious cutting edge design/architecture blogs that are so intimidating. But I’ve had it bookmarked forever.

  2. Judy says:

    See, I do sometimes check out your blog. Those fences are incredibly awesome.

    1. Patsy Ann says:

      Thanks, Judy. I’ll posting another option some time in the next couple of weeks.

    Are you kidding me? This is way cool, PA!! Can’t wait to see the finale!

      Thanks, Kay! I hope I didn’t jinx the project by announcing its arrival in Houston. This whole process has been a very long arduous painful journey. I just hope the truck doesn’t get hijacked coming from Houston and find that my fence is being used to protect some Mexican drug cartel’s fort.

    You are amazingly creative, Patsy Ann. I cannot wait to see the installation.

    1. Patsy Ann says:

      Thanks, Margaret, but I didn’t design this fence. I stumbled upon it by accident on one of those super fancy high design blogs that I visit regularly.

  6. Never seen anything like this. I can’t wait to see how you use it in your yard!
