In a time of social distancing, people are more aware of touchpoints than ever. Here are a few pieces of hardware created to add style to any design.
Ashley Norton’s unique art-grade Bronze pieces include the rugby ball-shaped Cleat (shown here) and the oblong Potato knobs.
“Each new Solid Bronze piece is a sophisticated blend of ergonomics and style,” said Ashish Karnani, VP of Ashley Norton. “We added a wide variety of elements to the collection so that architects and designers can select the ideal combination for their projects.
“The solid bronze Cleat Knobs feature an unusual rugby ball shape. They’re visually unique yet perfectly ergonomic and comfortable to use,” Karnani added.
Inspired by nautical portholes, Designer Doorware’s Brass Niki knobs feature a clean circular geometry that’s playful yet elegant.
“Never before has the humble circle been so fun—and so versatile,” said Joseph Di Benedetto, executive director for Designer Doorware. “The available styles and finishes of the Niki knob allow designers to create just the right tone to perfectly suit the style of the room, whether stark and modern or cozy and rustic.”
Dominique knobs and pulls from Jeffrey Alexander feature a dynamic, thin square shape paired with a contoured under-curve for a comfortable feel, along with straight, rounded tube feet. Three coordinating knobs echo the soft-contemporary feel.
“Fusing daring lines with delicate contours, Dominique presents a transitional vibe that’s suitable for nearly any kitchen and bath style,” said Stephanie Lowe Mersky, product manager, decorative products for Jeffrey Alexander. “It’s a look that will remain timeless even as design trends shift and change.”
One of the company’s largest collections, the Dominique line includes five standard pulls, two appliance pulls, and three knobs, including square knobs and “T” knobs. Seven finishes are available: Brushed Gold, Matte Black, Satin Bronze, Satin Nickel, Brushed Oil Rubbed Bronze, Brushed Pewter, and Polished Chrome.
