It is one of the features of a home with which you have your most intimate relationship. It is something you can interact with many times daily. Visually, it can provide much more than just a curvaceous and tactile conduit for taking you from one space into another.

Door knobs, drawer pulls, hinges, locks and plates, window hardware, and latches––all can be a way to elevate otherwise mundane accoutrements into an experience.

Hardware is available in a wide variety materials, colors, finishes, textures, styles, and themes.

They can be as gothic or as modern as you want to go.

Below, the escutcheon––the backplate that attaches to the door––is of brushed bronze with a mortise lock function. While the style hovers somewhere between traditional and modern, the elegance is obvious.
