Sounds and sights of summer with Martin Pierce Hardware

Simplicity in design is often the key to creating a serene and relaxing environment during the summer months. Heavy drapery fabrics are replaced with lightweight sheers that can billow in the wind.  Dark floor coverings are lightened up through the use of natural fiber rugs, for example, or removed all together to allow beautiful flooring to take center stage.  And accessories that represent the beauty of the season are scattered about including, perhaps, throw pillows and artwork depicting some of summer's bugs, the ocean's inhabitants or the birds that flock to the local trees.

We have created several door handle and door hardware collections that represent some of summer's icons including our Lizard door handle, scarab beetle pull, frog passageway door knobs and artwork in the form of birds and flowers that will definitely add a subtle summer touch to any interior design project.

Lizard door hardware

Lizards are a familiar sight during the summer months scampering about in the garden or catching some of the sun's rays along the sidewalk or patio.  Our beautifully detailed collection of door hardware is available in entry levers and knobs, passageway door hardware, cabinet pulls and coordinating bolts and flush trim.

What is a summer night without the sound of croaking frogs in the distance?  You can visually relive that eperience each time you open a door with our frog door knob from our Netsuke collection of custom door hardware or our highly polished frog cabinet pull shown here in stainless steel.

Whether you choose to celebrate the birds of summer with our Jay sculpture or our swallow cabinet pull, you are certain to be reminded of the beautiful and relaxing sounds heard throughout the summer months. And summer beetles are a common sight on a warm summer evening.  If you follow this blog then you are already aware of the passion Martin has for all types of beetles, often represented in his bronze sculptures or simple cabinet pulls like the scarab beetle pull shown below in both a small and large version.
