Honing in on Hardware

Conceptual design & design development requires the majority of my attention at the beginning of the process, but then we shift focus to the details when the broad strokes are complete!

Although small, that new shiny door knocker is one of my favorite pieces from my entire home remodel!

I love a unique hardware piece as much as I love fab chandeliers, so of course,I wanted to share the latest knobs that my team and I have fallen in love with and the amazing designers behind these petite masterpieces!
