Hardware - The 'Eyes' of the Cabinet

Hardware - The 'Eyes' of the Cabinet

"The door handle is the handshake of the building," said Finnish architect Juhani Pallasmaa. Hardware on furniture - cabinet and drawer pulls, hinges or escutcheons, can provide even more significant aspects in defining the piece. They could be considered the 'eyes' of the cabinet ... the 'hands' of the chest of drawers. Forms can vary from dramatically sculptural to clean and low-profiled - and everything in between. This is where you physically connect with the furniture - the parts that you touch and feel. We always work in bronze or brass using the warmth and freedom of lost-wax casting to make hardware that is extremely durable and that develops patina and character over time.  


Custom hardware is made for our own pieces and also on a special project basis. It is a vital design element expressing our craft values that enables us to design furniture where materials and design work on an equal footing to create pieces that we are proud to deliver to our clients.
