A  BRIEF HISTORY OF Pinky's Iron Doors


With roots dating back to 1978, Pinky’s was born of the artist's life.

Pinky's founder and patriarch Vic Der-Sarkissian was a drummer in Isfahan, Iran—a historic city and the country's artistic hub—where he played Jazz, an experimental genre built for improvisation and passion. Following the revolution, Vic sought to maintain the values and traditions he cherished. He fled with his wife and two sons to California. To Los Angeles. A universal haven for artists and creative spirits.

Southern California is an ideal. A dream in the minds of all who pursue it. Forever becoming.

Initially crafting expressionistic ironworks in his LA backyard in LA, Vic imbued each piece with the same passion and vive he poured into his drumming. Once an artist, always an artist.

The design and quality inherent in every Pinky's product resonated with the work of other artists in Southern California. The freedom and openness of the city that first attracted Vic is echoed in every door and window. It is the same lifestyle his sons Dion and Arin grew up in and celebrated.

When the brothers took over and refined Pinky's in 2014, they built upon their father's legacy and brought their family’s vision of connectedness across the country.

Each door and window crafted by Pinky's is a view. A frame. A connection to the natural world outside.
