The beauty of textured hardware

We often talk about the shapes and forms our custom hardware pieces take.  Inspiration is derived from flowers, greenery and nature's critters, resulting in beautifully detailed and amazingly lifelike pieces.  But often, all a business or residence needs in their hardware is a wonderful texture and dimension.  The custom hardware pieces in our Textured collection meet that need in a sophisticated and stylish manner.

In order to achieve this look the shape (rectangle, square) is cut into a block of dark blue wax and the pitted or dented texture is accomplished by chiseling out a series of small scoops in the wax to create the mold.  Once cast we use either steel or wire wool over the entire surface to soften the edges and acute angles.

The combination of simple design and beautiful detailing make this collection perfect for use in either a rustic or contemporary setting.  The round pull is available in large and small and is comfortable on the hand and easy to grasp.

Contemporary custom hardware designs

We spend a lot of time on this blog discussing the various custom hardware collections we offer, most often with a nature or organic theme.  But we are equally proud of some of the more contemporary and modern collections we also offer such as those pieces found in our Textured collection.  Our Ergo door handle, the subject of our recent naming contest, is also from this collection.  This grouping offers shiny stainless hardware that is in sharp contrast to the handsome and very textural pieces like our chiseled pull and coordinating hardware items.  Any of the hardware pieces in this collection are guaranteed to enhance your interior spaces and impress your clientele.
